You may have noticed that the coffee table in in our Living Room has nothing on it...that's because I can never decide what to put there. So this past weekend I set out to make it happen.
I love a tray on a coffee table because it gathers everything together and keeps it looking neat. A few rules I live by:
- Pair tall, medium and low objects for balance
- Flowers or greens are a must
- Keep it simple but interesting
- When in doubt, add a candle
Here are three options for great Coffee Table Tray combinations. Which is your favorite? Vote at the end of the post!!!

I love black and white with a pop of color. Here I paired an enamel tray with clear glass so as to not be visually distracting. The little green donkey? I got him in mexico so many years ago. The bright green enlivens the otherwise neutral palate and plays off the branches.
This tray is so beautiful but the details in the wood carved box are the show stopper so keeping everything else understated let's it shine. I used hardcover books stacked to add a little height and color. I kept everything else minimal for an elegant feel.
This metallic silver tray is so good it doesn't need much else to make it work. I again added a stack of books, neutral this time and a paper weight to reference the tone of the coffee table. The potted jade plants in the small blue vases and yellow plate add interest and a bit of color to the arrangement.
