Return to Moose Lodge


I first familiarized you with Moose Lodge in this post.  After that time, various holiday tables appeared, while Moose Lodge sat quietly in the corner of the kitchen.  
Week before last while taking down the Christmas decorations I was lamenting the loss of pine branches, holiday greenery, snow- dusted pine cones, and the like, when my eyes rested on Moose Lodge. 
I could still enjoy the holiday feeling I thought, without being overt.  I stripped off the table, parked it right in the center, and started placing some favorite holiday decorations around it, making it wintry, but not Christmas-y. 
Here is the end result.  It’s important, I think, to use the things we love again and again in different scenarios.  It’s both practical and cozy and I can’t stop looking at it.












Placemats – Pier 1
Napkins – Cost Plus World Market
Coffee cups – Amazon.com
Salad plates – Lotus-Metlox
Glasses – My mother’s
Soup bowls - Tender Heart
Bamboo flatware – Crate & Barrel
Small Reindeer candle holders – Pier 1
Large Reindeer – Pottery Barn

Moose Lodge looks like the kind of place I would like to be right now. Snuggled around a fire. I love pinecones and the woodsy table is perfect. Those soup bowls are just amazing! Love it all. Dianne

I clicked on the link and learned how the wonderful Moose Lodge cookie jar became part of "your" collection. Your mom had a great idea to use it in her guest room to store containers of toiletries for guests. I love this table!

Love the Moose Lodge cookie jar. Fantastic memories with your mother are contained in that cookie jar of going to your favorite shop on main street. Love the feel of this table as it is a great transition into. I am crushing the green soup bowls. Joni

OMG...what inspiration you've given me with Moose Lodge! I have a "log cabin" that I just love, and I keep it out quite a bit, especially out on the screened porch (it sports an American flag around the Fourth of July :) ), but I never thought to use it in a tablescape! Believe me, I will work that in--soon! Yours is lovely; I even went back to read the original story about it, which is lovely too. Thanks for such a nice treat! ~Zuni

My family were members of The Moose Lodge organization---wish I could have found one for the lodge we were always decorating for some event. Love the wintery table.
