Winter Wonderland Tablescapes
We don’t get much wintery wonderland in Florida, okay, we don’t get ANY wintery anything in Florida. This does not mean that I don’t love setting a table that conjures up visions of icy branches and layers of crisp white snow. I went back through the archives and noticed that of the two winter wonderland tablescapes I have styled, I have used the same salad and appetizer plates.
Different table, actually a different home, but those top two plates seem to stay the same. The funny thing is, I styled a new table I will be sharing this month and pulled out the same two plates! Do you ever find yourself doing that same thing when setting a table? Even without the updated logo in the corners, I think it is clear to see which table is more recent. My styling and my photography have improved over the years. Crystal, silver and pearls seem like the perfect complement to a wintery look. Crystal stemware glistens like ice does when the temperatures dip in the winter. Centerpieces for these two tablescapes were vastly different. This glittery swan with her stole of white fur swam in a nest of snow surrounded by an Ikea frame spray painted brilliant silver. The frame was an easy way to keep all of that faux snow contained.
A barren tree dripping with strings of pearls echoed the starkness of winter in climates where the frigid temperatures leave all vegetation sterile and naked. Do you entertain in the wintertime? I feel like winter is the best time to host a dinner party. Gather friends together for enjoyable company and conversation over wonderful food.

The party will be open until February 1st and I will be sharing my NEW winter tablescape with a creative craft to be incorporated into the centerpiece on January 14th!
