A few weeks ago when I did this fancy-pants Winter tablescape, I had no idea Old Man Winter was still planning to stop by for a visit. He’d thrown some chilly days our way, but mostly he was MIA—until this week.
First came the ice…
(almost an inch of it!)
… and then the snow.
Since so many of us are tucked inside on these cold days, it seems like the perfect time to quick-change the “over the top” dishes in my last tablescape and replace them with a look that’s comfy-casual.
Check out the changes:
- Wood-look charger
- Wood napkin rings
- Plaid linen napkins
- Everyday Mikasa “Italian Countryside” dinner plate
- Trade in the pearl-handled flatware
- Favorite Dollar Tree goblets
- Mini pine cones added to the (same as before) centerpiece
Light the candles—and stay warm! I certainly plan to… as we head to negative numbers overnight.
I wonder… Do woods and plaids—and pinecones—say “casual” to you? What are your comfy-casual tablescape items of choice?
By the way, if you’re stuck inside and wondering what to do with yourself—or the kids—how about this? Just click on the picture to read all about it. I guarantee you it will be time well spent!
