It's been cold here in Arkansas, but I know it's been a lot colder other places.
What do you do when it looks like this (or worse) outside?
I set a table in front of the fireplace and put a pot of soup on. A quilt table topper makes me feel even warmer.
I get out the Snowflake by Noble Excellence china.
I used a silver colored charger under the plate stack.
Does the color silver make you think of ice?
The bread and butter plates (which I used for crackers and butter) are the same pattern name, but a different color and a different snowflake.
The crystal goblets remind me of cracked ice. The silver and clear wine stems just seemed to go with the other silver on the table.
I'm calling the napkin color ice blue, because that's the only way I can justify using these napkins on this table! I tied a snowflake Christmas ornament on to each napkin.
Our centerpiece is also our main course. This soup tureen reminds me of snow drifts, and I used a snow and ice topper on the cake plate under the tureen.
I added a sparkling snowflake ornament to the top of the mirror under the tureen.
I served hot ham and cheese on rolls in this basket.
What do I do when the sun begins to set behind iced limbs and utility wires?
I light a couple of candles.
I feel a lot warmer now. I hope you're staying warm wherever you are. Thank you for coming to visit.
