I found this through pinterest.
Don't overdo it! A simple way to collect items is with a tray.
Use groupings of three! This is a universal rule in decor- use odd numbered groupings in threes or fives to create balance in the display. They don't have to be a repeat of the same thing, as in the topiary between the two ornaments.
Altogether, these tips make for an attractive and balanced display area without being overly cluttered on the end tables. Lanterns, vases and dried flowers are always nice choices when planning decor around your home.
