A Wintry Tablescape
Hard to believe another year has come and almost gone. Christmas is over along with all the festivities that accompany it each year. I don't know about you, but I miss it when it's gone. While I am glad to have all my decorations packed away for another 11 months, the house seems bare without them. I do enjoy cleaning and rearranging after Christmas as well as creating new vignettes here and there around the house. I never did get to share my gingerbread collection, perhaps next year. Today, I will share my most recent tablescape. I took it down today because we are working in the dining room and I didn't want to risk anything being broken. It was one of my favorite tables to date! I hope you enjoy it.
Although it hasn't been cold here in Florida, I decided to bring some winter chill to my table. Aqua blue, silver, and white were the theme, along with some sparkle and glitter. I love these goblets with the crystal ball in the stem. They were perfect for this table, along with the snowflake "coasters".
This shot was just for fun taken from over the glass.
Sequined and glittery spheres inside a tree shaped apothecary jar are perfect additions to this wintry table.
A small mirror ball ornament sits atop a snowflake in the centerpiece.
Along with a bucket of "snowballs"!
Another sphere filled jar and a mercury glass votive brings me joy.
The centerpiece was created with a milk glass dish as the base, with a mirror on top. I love my new spiral bottle brush tree. It will be a part of many vignettes in the years to come.
I was thrilled to find these white and silver snowflakes plates half off at TJ Maxx the day after Christmas. They were $2.50 each and they had just four left. I did have my white china plates on the table, but switched them out for the new ones when I got home. The blue snowflake plates were a Goodwill find a while back.
There are 3 or 4 different snowflake designs on the plates. So perfect for this table. White napkins and silver napkin rings with a snowflake ticked in complete the look. The table runner was thrifted as well and is by Martha Stewart. Love the colors! It was the inspiration for this table.
I really enjoyed creating this table. I enjoy creating all my tablescapes. I find it very relaxing. It is fun shopping the house for just the right items to add to the table. I may throw together a table for New Year's, we shall see. I did decorate my buffet for New Year's and will be back tomorrow to share it.
I hope you had a beautiful Christmas my friends.
Until next time.....
