It's time to get back to normal after the past few months of continual preparations, celebrations, and libations.
All the Christmas decorations are packed away for the year and It's time to settle into whatever winter has to offer us. So far, January has started mildly in Central Ohio. We've enjoyed three straight days of sunshine, which is unusual during the winter, and our temperatures neared 60* over the New Year's holiday.
Today, I want to share my January tablescape. Because winter is just beginning, I am dedicating January to the snowflake and snowman. I started with a crisp blue tablecloth with snowflakes, which I purchased at Kohl's after-holiday sale for a little over $10.
I coupled the tablecloth with blue napkins from my Wopat Auction stash, and snowman napkin rings I found at Kohl's for $1.49 each.
I used my mother's crystal plates and some glass buffet salad plates I also bought at the Wopat Auction. Between the plates, I placed a circle I cut out of royal blue tissue paper to add some depth of color. The glassware is from the Dollar Tree.
Each placesetting was completed with a glitter snowflake ornament I purchased at The Dollar Tree for 25 cents each.
For the centerpiece, I started with a silver platter I bought at ...you guessed it...the Wopat Auction. The cloche features three little glitter tree ornaments I bought at Walmart for 25 cents each. For color, I tied a blue napkin around the base and paired it with one of my non-catastrophic sewing attempts, a pillow and a taper candle.
