Good Questions: What do you put on a console table?

When we got photos for our sister's house in Texas, we told her, "Hmm. Your house is looking sparse! Haven't you been living in there for a couple years now?" And she replied back, "Well, why don't you help me fill it then!" So we're working on it. But here's one obstacle we're still dealing with: what do you put on a console table?

See, it sounds like a really lame question with an incredibly easy answer, right? Well, that's what we thought. We were suggesting a tray to hold keys, sort through mail, and some better flowers than what she's got. Maybe even some photos in nice frames! But then we moved on to the other shelves, and that's where we got stuck. Because if you put boxes there, what would you put in it that would make it important to be in the entryway? Books? Old magazines?

Anyone have any suggestions of how to utilize this console table?
