Winter White Tablescape

I always find the first tablescape of the New Year to be particularly challenging. I don’t mind the month of January, but it tends to be rather bleak and uninspiring. I chose to pull a few elements from a recent holiday table, mix it with whites representing the dusting of snow that we have on the ground at the moment, and pair this with crystal and candles. I like the look.

 
 The centerpiece of this table consists of two of my favorite pine trees, now strung with tiny lights. At the base of them are three ceramic houses, each illuminated with a tea light candle. You can find something similar here

At either end are a pair of crystal candle holders that my husband bought me years ago, each holding a pair of 10 inch white taper candles.

 

Snowflake candle holders that I got from Crate and Barrel years ago provide a bit of sparkle and light at the center of the table, and at each place setting.

The darling house salt and pepper shakers are by Magnolia Home and were purchased a couple of years ago from Target.

The scalloped, chippy, wooden chargers are from Pier One, and undoubtedly you have seen these before, on my blog, and the blogs of many others. My only regret about this purchase is that I only bought four of them. 

They are topped with Maison Versailles Blanc Amelie dinner plates and appetizer plates, separated by a simple gray napkin from Pottery Barn.

The "cabin" flatware is from one of my favorite places (as you all well know), Cabela's!

Half moon, pressed glass salad plates add a bit of frostiness alongside the plates, and are perfect for serving salad.

Marquis lead crystal wine glasses and simple white cappuccino cups finish out the place settings, all of which rest on top of a beige tablecloth with a macramé runner.

 

Comfortable, delightful, and wintry, this table is certain to be appreciated by your guests.

Your centerpiece and table settings are so pretty and sparkly. I don't really do any entertaining but if I ever start, I will have to come back through your posts to study all of your lovely and creative table setting ideas. I love the little moon plates at the side of your serving plates. They do add sparkle and I love moons.

I fell behind with cleaning during the recovery times for my two separate knee surgeries and have never caught up. I don't know if I will ever be able to battle my clutter back and get thing pretty again..

I also love when you show us your sunny sunroom, conservatory. It look like summertime in there.

My birthday is in January. I would love to change it to my favorite month, May. I wonder if it is going to be a cloudy,dreary January day here in St. Louis today. I hope not.

Take care.

Oh Pattie I love this! You always show a beautiful tablescape, but this might be my favorite. I LOVE all the whites with the tiny lights, and I'm now searching for snowflake candle holders. Gorgeous!

Enchanting! Your transition from December to January is spot-on; when I think January, I think snowy white. All of your pieces are beautiful, but my favorite is the cabin flatware. So homey and unique! :)

I am super duper late showing up to take a good look at this tablescape. That's my loss because it is the perfect remedy to a cold winter's day when my psyche (as well as my fingers and toes!) needs warming up!
