Let it Snow! Tablescape!

I love snowmen and I have several, so now that the Christmas decorations are put away, the snowmen came out to play- figure I can keep them around here until Valentines Day if I want to- we don't get snow here in Central West Coast Florida, so this is as close as we get. (Actually, it is supposed to get so cold this weekend that snow flurries are a possibility! It gets cold here, people! Just not for very long!)

The centerpiece is a cake stand/ice pond for the snowmen that were a gift several years ago.
I love this little slinky snowman it holds a tealight, that I forgot to put in.

This is a papier mache snowman that my daughter made about 15 years ago (she is 27 now!)! I can't believe how long it has lasted! It looks the same as it did back then! It is just newspaper! Next to the paper mache snowman is the Publix snowpeople from several years ago- they don't make them anymore.


The pinecones are spraypainted with a gold wreathy thing around them and a little Christmas bulb on top. The white snowman is a tea light burner.




I used clear plates so you could see the snowman placemats. I bought them at "the tree" and they didn't have 4 of a kind so I used 2 sets of 2 different ones. The napkins are just white ones I got at a thrift store with 2 napkin rings also from "the tree". I was so happy when I realized I actually had 4 of these cute little snowman mugs!
Two more snowmen salt and pepper shakers and the white reindeer hung around from the last tablescape.
No Snowscape would be complete without a sled and no Tipton table would be right without candles! The red is a woven type fabric that I curled around the center- on top of a lacy runner.
That was a fun tablescape! Hope you enjoy! For some more tablescape enjoyment, check out www.betweennapsontheporch.com I haven't figured out how to link properly to her blog- it keeps messing up! But thanks, Susan for being our hostess for Tablescape Thursdays! This is my 12th tablescape and I am enjoying it so much!

Have fun!

What a delightful tablescape! I just love snowmen, they make me happy. My head is spinning on how to make one of those "slinky snowmen." I was able to make pumpkins from wire this year, maybe snowmen next!Thanks for sharing... Dee Dee

Fun table and a clever idea to use clear plates over the snowmen placemats. I still have my snow people out as well. May just think of a way to use them in a tablescape. Thanks for sharing. ~ Sarah

LOVE this tablescape you've put together! Having taken down some of my Christmas decorations here, this week, has been a little sad, so I'm happy to see that you could still have some seasonal FUN and SPIRIT for Tablescape Thursday! I do recognize your snowman mugs!.. We have those TOO!! Aren't they just the CUTEST?!! ~tina
