I had my table decorated with the little snowmen that I've made.
I thought that each place looked sweet with its own little frosty creations.
I wasn't ready to get rid of my winter thoughts,
so I decided to keep a few things that would remind me of winter days.
So, here is what I have designed....
I started with some pine greenery with little pine cones. I added a couple of
different-looking larger pine cones that I found earlier this fall.
I decided to use these snowflake napkin rings.
I thought they would look nice with the green napkins.
I added one of my silver-colored mercury glass
trees from my dining room table.
I think you can see the arrangement better from this angle.
Now you can see the green glasses.
I made the place mats using some burlap I had left over from another project.
I used another place mat for my pattern.
I cut the burlap and then pulled a few threads to make the fringe.
If there were any edges that didn't look even, I trimmed them with my pinking shears.
I did this outside so I wouldn't make a mess in the house.
I ironed the place mats and that really made them look great!
Since I already had the burlap, is was very inexpensive to make the place mats.
I have enough to make a small runner, too!
I love using these colors for a winter table.
I haven't used these colors before in January and I really like the change.
I can't wait for a warm and cozy meal at this table.
