Welcome to the 323rd Tablescape Thursday!
It’s too cold for tablescaping out on the porch this week so we’re in the dining room for this week’s Tablescape Thursday. Since I have an abundance of red tartan tablecloths right now 🙂 (see Tuesday’s post for an explanation) I decided to put one to use.
This table is all about winter with a snowflake centerpiece, frosty white Cher Blanc dishware by Noritake and snowmen appetizer plates.
I’ve been collecting the Swarovski snowflake and star ornaments since the very first year they introduced this collection. I usually put them out around this time of year and keep them out to enjoy all winter.
Tall Centerpieces: I’m frequently asked about using tall centerpieces in table settings. Feel free to use any centerpiece you like on your table and don’t worry about the height. If a centerpiece is so tall it will interfere with view or conversation during dinner, just move it to the sideboard or another location just before your guests sit down to eat.
I let the silver ornament trees guide the direction of the table, choosing silver wine goblets, silver napkin rings and silver twig flatware for this tablescape.
I’ve had the little snowmen plates for several years…found those in HomeGoods. They don’t have a brand or hallmark on them so not sure who made them. I used both snowflake and reindeer napkin rings, alternating them around the table.
The beautiful dinner plate and salad plate are Cher Blanc and were provided by Noritake. You can see and read more about Cher Blanc here: Cher Blanc by Noritake
I love the delicate design around the outer edge…so pretty!
Snowflake napkin rings are from Bed, Bath and Beyond several years ago.
Reindeer napkin rings are from Dillards 3-4 years ago. Silverplated twig flatware is available here: Twig Flatware

If you are participating in Tablescape Thursday, please be sure to add your permalink below, and not your general blog address.
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 for a previous Tablescape Thursday.
