A Snowman Table




It seems the theme for January is snowmen and snowflakes
and at my house its really no different, especially at my table.

I found these jolly fellows hanging out at the thrift store back
in October for $.99 a plate and they're here today to
brighten my table with their smiles.
Each of the four plates is different, but I only used two of them
today for this tablescape since the other two are a little
more Christmasy.
My base dinner plate is white with raised dots around the rim and
was purchased this season at World Market.
Napkins were purchased at a thrift store for $.59 each and
the napkin rings are simply coordinating ribbon I found
at JoAnn Fabrics.  
My centerpiece is a simple dark blue candlestick holder with a
white candle and another piece of coordinating ribbon wrapped
around the center to tie everything together.
I love the contrast of the dark blue salad plates against the
stark white of the dinner plates, while the polka dots on
the ribbon and both plates completes the look.
Here are the other two plates that I did not use today.

Snowmen may represent the cold outdoors, but their 
child-like smiles warm hearts far and wide while 
harkening back to the simpler days of our youth.

I love your base plates with the white dots. I found something similar in cream color several years at Wegman's and I use them for most of my dinner parties. Snowmen make me smile ;o) So cheery.

Thank you for your nice comment on my blog. Yes, the pink plates are depression glass.

Those snowmen are having way too much fun! I love the idea of snow and looking at it but not actually being in it! Stay warm and cozy.

Don't you love it when you find a thrift store treasure that you can put away for a few months and bring out just when the time is right?!! Love the colour of these plates, so striking against the white and they look wonderful with your goblets and candle holder. Lovely celebration of the "joys of snowmen"!

The polka dot ribbon on the candle and napkins add just the right touch of whimsy. An adorable table.
