Last year about this time, I did a post about treating yourself to fresh flowers in the winter. It is something that I truly believe is worth giving Walmart $5 for. This winter in particular, with all this snow and cold temps, it seems more necessary than usual. On Sunday, I picked up these beautiful tulips and I decided they would add just a hint a color to my black and white "snow" table.
I started this table with a black table runner trimmed on the ends in gold. Black round placemats under each place setting was the first "layer".
Black napkins with gold snowflake napkin rings keep up with the theme. My centerpiece is a wonderful black wire bowl that was a birthday gift from a good friend. I filled it with snowballs, perfect for this weather!
A few snow-sparkled fronds serve as the base for the bowl.
My white Wedgewood plates are topped with small black Walmart salad plates. The focal point of the setting is the Crate and Barrel snowflake appetizer plate. Charcoal gray flatware and black stemmed wine glasses finish the setting.
Snowflake votive candles add a little glow.
Lenox Crystal candlesticks balance
the tulips on the other end of the table.
As night falls, the table takes on a
soft, warm glow.
