I’m still having fun with winter decorating and happy to share my winter entry table with simple styling today. I’m also sharing two quick craft projects to incorporate a little bit of green into your living spaces even if it’s a just room that you pass through.

Winter Entry Table With Simple Styling
Here’s what I’m focusing on for simple winter styling on the entry table.
- blue and white accents
- natural elements
- variety of vintage items
First, I cleared off all Christmas decor leaving the navy and white lamp, then I updated the seasonal artwork. To see the previous look click on my post, Christmas Entry Table with Mercury Glass, where I featured a collection of whimsical pine tree watercolors.
Now I’m displaying a collection of navy blue watercolor botanicals in the grid of frames. You can find these prints in my Society6 store or you can click on a specific print below.
- Navy Flowering Vine Watercolor
- Navy Botanical Watercolor
- Navy Flowering Branch Watercolor
- Navy Rose Hips Watercolor
One thing I’m loving about this simple styling, is that the classic navy and white colors work year round. Therefore, I’m continuing the navy and white scheme with the lamp and the small round bowl holding mini pinecones.
By the way incase you’re wondering, the wall color is Navel by Sherwin Williams.
Winter Entry Table With Vintage Accessories
The limited amount of accessories on the entry table allows for room to set down the mail, but most of time it stays clear of clutter. I like using larger accessories when the space allows it, such as the vintage demijohn.
For height, I’m adding a couple of curtly willow branches in the demijohn. I love their unique shape and the fun bit of drama they add to the table.
These branches were completely bare, until I added a few leaves that I cut out of tissue paper and glued on. It’s a wee hit of green, as if the willow branches are just starting to put on new leaves.
All it takes is just a dot of hot glue to secure a small leaf cutout.
In the center of the table a set of vintage French kilo scales. These were in my childhood home growing up, and I always love decorating with them.
The scales didn’t show up very well in my photos, but they are really pretty with a dark burgundy painted metal base.
The vintage last item is a mini apple canted box sitting on a stack of books with an arrangement of sheet moss. I can’t think of an easier way to add a bit of natural greenery to the table, and I love the soft texture it provides.
To create a similar arrangement you’ll need the following.
- small container such a bowl or wood box
- wire cutter
- floral wire netting or floral foam
- sheet moss
Cut off a section of the floral netting a little larger than your container using wire cutters.
Bend the netting so that it will fit inside your container. The netting serves as a platform and creates an illusion that the container is full of moss.
If you don’t have floral netting, you can cut a piece of floral foam to fill the space inside your container
Add sections of sheet moss on top of the netting, until you have the coverage you want. I’m also adding some deer moss, bark chips and some mini pinecones to the sheet moss for added interest.

Just beautiful Michelle. Love the blue color on your wall and all of the blue and white details mixed with natural elements. Just my style.
What a lovely styling. I’m crazy about the set of four framed watercolors. And love your moss arrangement. Navy & White — oh, be still my heart!
