The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Winter Wonderland Tablescape!

If only it would S N O W On Crooked Creek!!!
I love S N O W!
But. . .since we've had no measurable amounts of S N O W. . .I made a Winter Wonderland Tablescape!!!

After taking down the dining room Christmas Tree On Crooked Creek, I decided it was time for a new color palette in keeping with the Season.
I love S N O W !
SO~o~o. . .  I brought the S N O W  inside!


First I put on my flea market  "great find"  $5  S N O W flake tablecloth! Next, I added my after Christmas $ale silver chargers. Then the layering of dinner ware. . . my Homer Laughlin, Epicure turquoise blue hued dinner plates, followed by my vintage  white lace dinner plates and topped of with my Gold Crown Life Time China Co. dessert / salad plates from Alliance, Ohio! Finishing touches of a freshly pressed aqua napkin and our everyday beaded stainless steel flatware! We're using our plain stemware as it mimics the shape of the candlesticks.

Shopping the kitchen and china cabinets On Crooked Creek provided the necessary items to make this three~tiered centerpiece! A serving platter from our everyday porcelain white dinnerware, a creamy ivory leaf embossed serving bowl and a crystal and frosted glass compote with etching!

I worked some faux pine needle garland around each base and added faux silver holly leaves to enhance the arrangement. Next came silver S N O W flakes and bronze and silver glass pine cone ornaments. In the compote I placed a frosted glass votive with the sweetest smelling candle scent, Wintercream, surrounded by an ivory pip candle ring.

The creamy ivory S N O W flake runner is a perfect fit for our round dining table On Crooked Creek. Each individual S N O W flake has a bronze hue to accent the delicate stitching.  To either side of the centerpiece I added my silver candlesticks with sage green molted hued candlesticks. A glass ring with a golden band and ivory pip candle rings sits atop each candlestick.

At each place setting, I set a frosted glass votive with the sweetly scented Wintercream candle and an ivory pip candle ring. The ambiance is utterly romantic!

"Mr.Ed's" side of the table with that detailed S N O W flake runner, once again!

 This S N O W flake runner makes me swoon!

Isn't it just the most delicate, intricate S N O W flake runner, ever???

On Crooked Creek with all it's candlelight ambiance. . .
A Winter Wonderland Tablescape!

Sit back, relax. . .and think S N O W!

Here's a few more close ~up photo shots before I depart for this evening On Crooked Creek!

On Crooked Creek, our wicker half ~ round basket changes with each season. I almost shivered when I added these ice ladden branches.
Of course, it was near 50 degrees today. . .
and no S N O W in the upcoming weeks forecast!

But. . .one can dream!
Dream of S N O W!
On Crooked Creek. . . for surely, I will!

While it's sunny and unseasonably warm on the outside ~
we'll be enjoying our Winter Wonderland Tablescape inside
