Snow and Ice Winter Tablescape

 I'm joining Cuisine Kathleen's Let's Dish with a Winter Challenge tablescape, and Susan's Thursday Tablescapes. Click on their names for lots more inspiration. Thanks for hosting, ladies!

I didn't have to buy anything new for this tablescape. I started with a snow white Battenburg lace tablecloth.

I had planned to spray paint some chargers silver, but decided I like the way the china looks just on the tablecloth.


The dinner plates are from Dollar Tree. The salad plates are white with a silver band, they are from Marshall's. The tea cups are from Home Goods. The crystal look flatware and the crystal look napkin rings are from Ross.




The centerpiece was fun to do. I didn't put away these white decorations after Christmas because I was hoping to use them for Kathleen's challenge.

I couldn't decide whether to use the flocked white apples, or the ice-look bunches, so I combined them on a narrow silver tray.



Later I found this beautiful white rose and added it to the centerpiece:


 Next I found this little crystal bird in the china cabinet and added it:






 I also have a long crystal garland that extends the length of the table, you can see it below:


The sun was shining brightly the day I took these pictures, I was surprised how all the white made the pictures look almost black and white!




I decided to add a little green to the centerpiece. These faux ivy leaves are beaded
They look almost like they are sugared!
 


This little snowman wanted to join the fun, so I said, "Okay, just one picture."

Or maybe two:
 

 But I decided to stay with a pretty look instead of "cute"

With the rose, and apples and grapes:
 I think it has an elegant look:
 


 The cup and saucer is for hot coffee or cocoa, to warm you in the winter scene!

 Try not to think of our Florida weather! Actually, we are having some cooler weather here, just in time for my winter tablescape! But no snow and ice of course!
 Only on the table!



A place for you!



 Join us!


 I hope you are having a happy wintertime!  Stay warm!

Katherine, I love the all white look, with just the touch of your greenery. I love how the snowman got in on it, too... good for him! I can see lots of uses for the flatware from Ross. I saw the flatware at my Ross today and was thinking about buying them. I may have to go back!!

Your snow and ice table is very inviting. If we had a Ross, I would be buying that flatware!

I think the only way I'm going to make it through this night is to think of your Florida weather. We are supposed to drop down way low into the single digits with wind chills below zero. NOT looking forward to that little scenario! My husband has to leave for work really early tomorrow morning, so I'll be out there (like every morning) seeing him off from the garage door in my nightie. I need to put a parka somewhere near that door!!! :-) You did a great job with the table in your quest to capture that icy, snowy look. I like all the frosted pieces in the centerpiece! Hey....I also like your cute new photo on the side with the hat and, of course, the yellow rose! Very pretty! I'm still on a little tablescaping break, but I hope to return next week. Enjoy the relative warmth of Florida and send warm thoughts toward the Midwest, please!!! :-)

Hello Lady K,

Your table is so elegant. The touch of white and the crystals really remind of the icy cold winter, like I am living.

A -22 deg centigrade can't be funny. But behind all those hardship of winter, there are beautiful and whimsical sceneries.

Oh how lovely your all white snowy table looks! White on white is gorgeous and looks quite snow covered.

For a Florida gal, you did it up right! Very pristine! It also reminds me of the snow white sands of Siesta Key. Oh I wish I were there right now. LOL

Warm Hugs,
Rett
