Coffee Table Books

8/26/2013


I love a good coffee table book. My friends and family know this about me so I open a few each year as gifts and rotate them in and out on our coffee table. Here are a few of my recent favorites.

In the Spirit of Capri: In lieu of a traditional shower gift, my friend Krissy put together a honeymoon-inspired bag for me and it included this book (we'll be stopping in Capri on our honeymoon).
Vogue Weddings: My bridesmaid Whitney gifted this to me last Christmas. I may own every Vogue coffee table book, but this is definitely a favorite.
Surf Contest: When you live with a boy you can't have all girly coffee table books. The photography in this one is gorgeous. 
The California Surf Project: I recently bought this as a thank-you gift, and Ian hinted that he'd like a copy. He just might find it under the Christmas tree this year!
Vera Wang on Weddings: A gift from another bridesmaid, Daniela. My girls know me well.
Tartine Bread: We just received this off our wedding registry. It's technically a cookbook but pretty enough to showcase on our coffee table.

Oooh I want that Vogue Weddings book! LSD's dress was unreal. I remember looking at the California Surf Project book in a shop in SD and thought it was really cool!!! My home would be so boring without coffee table books! xo

I'm a big fan of coffee table books! They are super pretty as decoration and great to flip through on a rainy day.
