I have been looking forward to this tablescape. It has been simmering in the recesses of my brain for quite awhile. Finally this week, with Christmas all packed away and winter trying it’s best to visit, I let the creative juices flow! Oh goodness, it was fun!!
I started by spreading out the beautiful white chenille bedspread, that my cousin, Janice, gave me. It reminds me of freshly fallen snow.
Then I placed the gorgeous silver place mat that I treated myself to for my birthday. ;0) They were expensive so I could never imagine buying enough to use at each place setting. One was perfect to use to anchor a centerpiece. I know I will get lots of use out of it.
Next…I built my snowmen!
Several months ago, I pinned a picture on Pinterest of a winter card. The front of the card had a snowman on it. It looked something like this. It was three white paper circles laying on top of each other. Of course, since I enjoy tablescaping, I immediately thought of round plates when I saw the three different sized paper circles.
I knew I wanted everything to be white and silver. However once I decided on this imitation enamel jug for the flowers, black seemed to be the perfect accent.

Edited to say: I just found out that today (Jan. 18) is World Day of the Snowman!! Perfect timing!!!!
You do not have to spend a lot of money on flowers to have a pretty centerpiece. Two little bundles of grocery store carnations. The stemware was a bridal shower gift almost 27 years ago. Does the ribbon tied on the stem remind you of anything?
A scarf tied around the neck of a snowman??
Each place setting has their own Epsom Salt candle holder. They are so pretty in the dark. Learn how to make them, as well as the Epsom Salt snowflakes in the next picture, and the snowballs in the centerpiece HERE.
My new white nesting bowls, from Nicole for Christmas.
Silver snowflake tree ornaments, that I bought on clearance last January, decorate each place setting.
