In my home, we tend to socialize and congregate in our living room, making our couch and coffee table the focal point of our home. Follow these five simple steps to making your coffee table and couch a styled success.

STEP 1: Fluff your pillows & add a Throw

A good fluff can breath new life into your couch! It also makes your living room look fresh and inviting. Don't forget to add a throw for an added touch of cozy. I used the Island Vibes Turkish Towel for a pop of summer style.

Step 2: beverages & Snacks

Create a well rounded social setting by serving drinks and light bites on your coffee table. Include interesting glassware and serving pieces. I used our Island Vibes Botanical Glasses, and Teak Wood Tray and Tongs to complement the throw. For an easy snack, I included our Island Vibes Key Lime Cookies. I completed the look by setting up our Island Vibes Pineapple Lime Mixer and lemonade for guests to mix as they please with their Island Vibes Pineapple Stirrers.

Step 3: Fresh Flowers & Greenery 

Fresh flowers and greenery add height and softness to any space. Be sure to use a low profile vase and trim the stems so the height doesn't overpower the rest of the table.

Tip: Add greenery to the side of your couch to create more dimension and style to your room!

Step 4: Coasters

Coasters are not only functional, but they add an extra layer of style to your table.

I used our Party Coasters found in our Mostess Market. Stack your coasters off to the side so guests can easily reach for them.

Step 5: Conversation Piece

I always like to have at least one item that catches your eye. To play up the summer vibes, I chose a mini pineapple!
