A Snow Woman Tablescape: Silver and Gold

Snowman 10

Snow fell for a lot of us this week. Still falling for some of you? We only got a dusting, but I sure did love watching it come down. Snug inside my old house, it seemed the perfect time for a Winter-themed tablescape.


Silver and gold and *icy* clear glass with touches of white set the stage atop a simple linen tea cloth.

Two charger plates, Franciscan “Platina”, a German-made white china plate with gold design, and a clear glass plate with silver overlay.


I chose a favorite snow woman from my collection to anchor the “centerpiece” spot on the table…

… and chunky swirl-design candles (that mimic the swirl on the dinner plates) add a warm glow on an otherwise gray day.  The little Lenox “Hanover” demitasse cups and saucers were an afterthought, but a tiny taste of something warm seems just the thing to break the chill on a snow day, don’t you think?

12 of these Lenox “Hanover” demitasse cups and saucers are available. I’ll beat the price at Replacements Ltd. if you’re interested.


Here’s a little tip for you:  When doing a Winter-themed tablescape, it’s always a good idea to use some sort of faux snow to give texture and “reality” to your tablescape. This week I was in a hurry, so I just drizzled a small amount of faux snow around—and on top of—my snowmen (and women). Ridiculously easy.



Of course, if you have the time and want to be more realistic, check out this snowy tutorial for creating your own Winter magic. Then your tablescape will be “over the top” like this one…

It’s been a really mild Winter so far here in East Tennessee. How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
