Welcome to the 382nd Tablescape Thursday!
We’re celebrating winter with a snowy winter tablescape for Tablescape Thursday.
It was a cold but sunshine-filled day yesterday when I created this table setting in my breakfast room.
For the centerpiece, I used the little tree I had previously used for our Hot Cocoa Bar on the porch. (See more of the Hot Cocoa Bar in this post: Create a Hot Cocoa Bar for Winter Entertaining)
I usually don’t have much luck with little trees like this indoors. They always seem to dry out quickly and before I know it, they are crunchy. I’ve been doing my best to keep this one well-watered and so far, it’s doing well. We’ll see if I can say that three months from now!
I surrounded it with faux snow. I should have taken a close up, I added some snowy glitter to the surface of the snow to give it the sparkle of real snow.
It’s alway s a bit of a challenge to take photos with the shutters thrown open in this room. The bright sunshine wreaks havoc with my camera but I still love trying to capture the shadows and sunlight as they dance across the table.
Snowflake napkin rings worked great with this snowy-themed tablescape. I can’t remember where I found those now since I’ve had them for many years.
I love to use these snowman plates in a winter table setting each year. For this table I paired them with David Carter Brown’s Christmas Village pattern. Though the name of the dinner and salad plate is Christmas Village, the snowy theme of the plates is wonderful for winter. I love to use this dishware all through the winter season.
The salad plates have the initials CR on the back which may stand for Christopher Radko. I found them in HomeGoods several years ago.
The glasses are also by David Carter Brown and the cute mugs were part of the snowman plate set.
Silver twig flatware looks icy cold in this winter-themed table setting. It was a find from West Elm, 2-3 years ago.
I wonder if we’ll see any snow here this winter. You never know with our crazy Georgia weather!
Looking forward to the beautiful tables posted for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!

To get your permalink, click on your post name, then copy and paste the address showing in the address bar, into the “url” box when you link up. You’ll need to include a link in your post back to the party to link up and participate.
That’s so visitors to your blog will be able to find the party and the other Tablescape Thursday participants. Requiring a link back also prevents businesses from linking up to sell their products. (Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.)
Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
Please do not link up table settings that were just recently shared in the last few weeks for Tablescape Thursday.
