A Thrifty Winter Table

I wanted a little change from the red and green of Christmas but still keep the winter theme
The soft blue and green of this snowman was perfect!
I started with these round place mats that I got on clearance at Kohl's for 79 cents each
These dinner plates were found for 50 cents each and they are made by Pfaltzgraff.  I had trouble finding the pattern but it was called Blue Snowflake several places.  The plate is a soft cream color with the blue snowflake and green border design.
 I added a candlewick glass plate found at a thrift for $1 each, the blue depression glass bought from ebay (a set with lots of pieces) for a great price and cream handled flatware bought on clearance at Ross 
I added a napkin that is leafy and somewhat springy but the colors are perfect (napkins and napkin rings both found at thrift shops)
These pretty glasses were found at a Goodwill in Texas and the colors are a bright touch to the table
A simple centerpiece...Blue Ball jar with dried hydrangeas from my yard, snowman candle holder and a snowflake tealight 
I centered each place setting with a snowflake tea light to add a little sparkle
I love the edges of this place setting
A winter table for two!

I'm joining Diann at The Thrifty Groove for her monthly 
Check out all the wonderful tables done a thrifty budget!  I'm guessing my table for two cost $15 and everything can be used in several ways.

Hugs,
Linda

I love every table that you set, and as I've mentioned once (or twice!) before, I am always impressed at where you find the items you use and at what unbelievable prices. This is a very romantic winter table for two. xo

Such a pretty table - I love that it says 'winter' without saying 'Christmas'.

Those snowflake tealight holders are so cute. I have a hard time finding snowmen that aren't super Christmasy. Probably because I forget about it until Christmas is over and all the stores are gearing up for Spring.

The sweet snowflake tea lights are very cute! I love buying the big bags of tea light candles to burn. They are the perfect size to use for a few days and then toss! Enjoy your weekend! ♥
