~~A Winter Kitchen Table~~~

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, it is COLD here in Pa.!!! 17 degrees when we woke up this morning! Winter is definitely here! I do NOT like cold so when winter shows up I dream of warm climates, palm trees and sunny skies. So, I surround myself with those elements! Palm tree dishes and accessories are in my kitchen for winter!!!! Here is my table and hutch. I will share the rest of the kitchen tomorrow.
I have a bamboo runner that is black and tan on the table . For a touch of FUN, I added 2 animal print placemats!
I love TEXTURE! It brings such warmth to a space.
We each have a votive candle at out place.
The "centerpiece" which I keep to the side is a rattan tray, a wicker candle holder, a pot of faux succulents, my TIKI  S and P set, And some seed balls.
There is great texture on this pot. I bought it premade because I could never make it for what I got it....$12.99!!!!

Here is the hutch dressed for winter.
I love my monkey candle holders. I found them at Home Goods several years ago.
Love these 2 pots too. They are rough in texture and have wire handles.

I got these 2 plates for 50 cents each!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some close up shots. That is an extension cord up there that is used for a lamp or lantern at different times of year. I couldn't get it out of the shot!
Love this vase too.
These are the salad plates that are part of my palm dishes. I will show you all of them in a tablescape soon.
The breakfast room server. I love how the sun pours in here in the winter!

Thanks for stopping by! I will join in on these parties, please go visit some of them too!!!

  1. I hate the cold too. Yesterday morning it was 37 & I couldn't warm up. I can't imagine 17. Today it's going to be about 70. That's more like it!

  2. I know all those tropical elements are making it feel warmer there. 17 yikes~!
    it all looks so pretty.. I saw some money fabric the other day and thought how cute it would be as pillows out here in the "jungle room" lol.. thats what the family calls it since I have lots of plants.

    stay warm

  3. It's looking quite tropical at your house, Pinky! I love how you did your table...the tray is so cute and I'd never guess your plants were faux! Your hutch is beautiful, too!

    We had a little warm up, it's 42. I haven't a clue how that happened, it's been in the teens for days! Stay warm!


  4. Pinky, I'm sure that tropical vibe warms your room immensely! The photos are gorgeous with the sunlight streaming in. We would never know it's freezing cold outside! Very pretty!

  5. Pinky,
    Push some of that cold air my's so balmy here on the Prairie we would be right at home with your gorgeous decor... Palm trees and all the monkeys!!!Today it's already 55 degrees! Last year on this same date...the store where I worked closed due to snow and ice. (?) From one year to never knows what to expect. Lovely post...send me some COOL thoughts!

  6. On a cold day, we need little "paradise"...I have lived most of my life in Florida and now live in NC. So I really miss the warm weather. Beautiful tropical elements in your kitchen!

  7. Feels like Iam at a tropical resort! So nice for the cold winter.Thanks for sharing your lovely home Great Job! Joann

  8. Wonderful tropical elements to warm up your kitchen Pinky.

    We had very cold weather over the weekend and then yesterday the temp was near 70. That is the way it has been in the STL area, all winter! Up and down weather.

  9. Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog. I am so happy to be following you!

  10. Pinky~ Everything looks so warm & tropical with your decorative elements and the sunlight pouring in the windows despite the temperature outside! We've had a relatively mild winter with only a few nights down in the twenties.

  11. Hi Pinky! Very warm setting! I love all of the textures you incorporated. I think my favorite is the vase. Great job bringing warmth to your cold winter.


  12. Hi Pinky!, I love your tropical decor. I would be turning up the heat and pretending I was in the caribbean. xo, Sherry

  13. I have to say that we have had a rather mild winter here. The other day the kids were out on the trampoline. I ran out onto the patio barefoot and in a tank top to tell them to put on their coats.

    The tablescape is just perfect for a winter escape. Love how the sun cooperated with you. The light adds just the right amount of sparkle. Good job!

  14. Pinky - I am so wanting my toes in the (hot!) sand now! Your salt & pepper shakers so reminded me of the movie "Night at the Museum" - don't know the exact quote, but I sure wants some gum now.

  15. Pinky - I am so wanting my toes in the (hot!) sand now! Your salt & pepper shakers so reminded me of the movie "Night at the Museum" - don't know the exact quote, but I sure wants some gum now.

  16. I'd love to share our 70 degree weather with you today! I don't like the cold, either! I am crazy about the palm tree plates and your plants!

  17. I froze yesterday, could not warm up. Just when my car got warm, it was time to get out out of it! And my car is almost brand new, so I know the heater works fine ;o) Your tropical table and decor just warmed me up!!
