It was a gray and rainy day in Illinois...so I had to turn the lights on!
I'm afraid all of my Christmas posts are going to have poor picture quality if the sun doesn't come back to my part of the country! Today's table was set around the centerpiece that I am leaving out to go with my Winter Wonderland look this year.
A few branches from my yard with a light coating of white spray paint create the perfect icicle "tree" when placed in a vase with opalescent stones and a few glittered pine cones. The reindeer was purchased after Christmas last year at Crate and Barrel. The mercury glass balls are also a Crate and Barrel purchase. You've seen me use them at various times of the year.
The table runner is a recent HomeGoods purchase.
It is embroidered with silver snowflakes.
I found the black and silver placemats at Ross for $1.99 for all four of them! The white dinner plates, salt and pepper shakers, bowls and goblets are Pfaltzgraff Winter Frost. The black salad plates are from WalMart. The silverplate flatware is W.M.Rogers-Enchanted Rose. I used black napkins with a simple piece of wired silver ribbon around them instead of napkin rings.
A closer view of the table runner.
The votive holders are also snowflakes (Crate and Barrel).
I'm joining our hostess Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch
for Tablescape Thursday. I hope you will drop by and
thank her for hosting every week.
