SNOWY TABLESCAPE

SNOWY TABLESCAPE

I may upset some people, but snow is predicted here tonight, and I am celebrating the snow!  I live in Arkansas, and we don't get a lot of snow, so, if we don't lose electricity, I am able to celebrate the snow.

We might get a dusting of snow sometimes, but predictions are that we will get a real snow this time.

I'm serving soup in these snowflake bowls.  The snowflakes on these bowls change colors, depending on the direction from which they are viewed. Sometimes, they look green, sometimes blue, and sometimes silver. (Snowflake by Noble Excellence) The service plate for the soup course is Heritage by Paragon.

Johnson Brothers Friendly Village is perfect for a snowy night.  Under the dinner plate, I used a green depression glass plate, a white metal charger (that sort of reminds me of a snowflake), and square, silver colored chargers (they remind me of ice).

I think these pressed glass stems look sort of like the facets of ice, which is what we are getting right now in the form of sleet.  I used snowflake ornaments as coasters.

I continued the snowflake theme by tying more of the snowflake ornaments onto white napkin rings.

It has even snowed inside my candle holders.

The ruffled baby blanket under the centerpiece suggests snow drifts.

Under a cloche, there's a friendly, snowy village to go along with the dinner plates.

Sledders take advantage of the snow.




I know some of you have had enough snow to last you a lifetime, and I am truly sorry for you. I wouldn't like that either.  But, since we don't get much snow, please forgive me as I indulge in my snow celebration.



Thank you for visiting BDwL. I'm going to go bundle up. Stay warm, wherever you are.

Hi Laurie, Love your snowy tablescape and your plates are one of my very favorites. We also got snow and lots of it over night with sleet to start and freezing temps. There is a layer of ice under the snow and very dangerous on the roads here in Texas!! So rare for us too.
Stay warm and safe.
Hugs, CM

Even though I'm up to my eyeballs with snow and winter I appreciate where you are coming from! You did a cute job of incorporating the snow, snow flakes and ice! Perfect dishes to go along with the theme too!
