This week's Let's Dish is our January challenge
As I shopped the house looking for inspiration this guy caught my eye and I knew he was perfect for today's tablescape!
I found this Snowman cookie jar a few years ago at Goodwill for under $7,
he is a great inspiration!
While the inspiration was easy the plate stack would not come together. I layered and layered and it took forever to find a stack that made me happy....but I did!
Green place mats, white dinner plate, red lunch plate, green salad plate with a frosty glass plate on top of it for texture!
Then a small black dish to hold our dessert!
For glassware I choose a black stemmed wine glass
and a crystal water goblet from Mr ALC's family
Red plaid napkins in a black napkin ring
and a cute bobble head snowman at each place setting,
place cards or fun phrases could be added!
Red handled flatware and It's a wrap!
I used a clear glass cake plate and added a black dinner plate for some interest. The snowman looks very happy up there!
I added a couple of lanterns and candles
I needed a candle on the other side of the snowman and to get some height I used a pilsner glass turned upside down as the candle holder!
(tip: you can use many things as candle holders, let your imagination guide you)
I think it turned out just like I wanted!
A winter table for two!
Update on Mr Toes: He is doing much better! Thank you so much for all your prayers and well wishes. Mr ALC visited him today in the clinic and he looks so much better. A few more days of IV antibiotics and if he continues to do well he should be home soon!
I'm joining these parties
Wishing you JOY,
