~~A Snowman and Snowflake table!!!~~~

Well, a dear fellow blogger told me to upload in HTML mode and it worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much, Michelle!!!! I have been wanting to share with you my new table setting. It is a fun, wintery, but not Christmas table that will serve us well for awhile.
I am using this cute snowman on a snowman cake plate for my centerpiece. I put some large snowflakes on the cake plate first. As you can see, the tablecloth is red and covered in snowflakes!!!! Cooincidently, this morning we woke to a light dusting of snow!!! The sun was coming through the windows this morning and lit this up so cute!!!
I also added to snowmen on each side of the centerpiece.
I also have these cute snowflake place card holders. Joe made me the place cards on the computer. The snowflake glasses and the clear goblets are both from Dollar Tree!!!
The napkins are covered in snowflakes too.
These new napkin rings are like a mini charm bracelet and have several different "charms", one of which is a snowflake!
These cute bowls will be filled with Joe's delicious chili! My stack of plates are a solid red dinner plate, the snowflake salad plate from Walmrt last year and the snowflake bowl. In between the dinner and salad plates I places a large snowflake for some PIZAZZ!!!!
Yes, I still have my tree up. I am going to Florida for a few days on Tuesday so am waiting til I get back to "dedecorate":) Candles add a soft glow and a feeling of warmth.
Here is a peek at the base of the cake plate. Yup, it's a snowman! And of course we have our snowman S and P.
I love these bowls. They are very versatile.
A  shot of the salad plate, I love all the colors on it.
The glasses are all sparkley at night:):)
And our pitcher is for water or any other drink we may choose:)
This divided dish is usually used for appetizers but could be used for bread and cheese for topping the chili.
And just for fun I am including a shot of my snowman lamp, that is on the bakers rack next to the table. Thanks SO much for your visit. I so appreciate all your sweet comments and support. I will join these parties this week:

Hi Pinky. I love the snowman theme. I do the same until at least February. It makes the let-down after Christmas easier to take! I don't have as many pretties as you though. I love it all..Happy Sunday..Judy

Mary said...

Adorable table Pinky! I love your glittery snowman and the bracelets as napkin rings are genius! I wish I had left our tree up one more week, the house looks empty without it! Have a fun and safe trip to Florida, you can build a snowman in the sand :)

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Pinky, did you figure out what was going on with uploading your pics? It hit me this a.m. like a ton of bricks that happened to me late last summer and I had to purchase more storage from blogger to continue. I recall something like it being $10.00 or something like that. I hope this helps you out if you haven't already figured things out.. hugs ~lynne ~

Kelly said...

Pinky, I love your snowflake decorated table! It reminds me of the runner I used on my table this past Christmas. Red and white is so cheery. Btw, I am having the same problem with uploading pics this morning! I'm going to have to take Michele's advise and see if that will work. Glad that you shared the solution!

Yay Michele!!! I'm so glad to know if I have problems there are other people that know the solutions because I'm clueless! I love this table! The dishes are adorable!

Carol said...

This is so very cute and cheerful, Pinky! I have some of those same Walmart salad plates and was hoping they would have them available this year, but no such luck! Have fun in Florida!

June Caedmon said...

What a fantastic display, Pinky! I collect snowmen, so your post was especially enjoyable! Love all the red and white, sliver, etc. snowflakes - everything is so festive!

I would love to be at your wintery table. How cute. I love Snowman. Happy New Year Pinky!

Dining Delight said...

So glad you were able to upload these fab pics of your snowman table! WOW you sure have a lot of lovely snowman accessories and they combine perfectly for this terrific red and white snowy table! I'm going to be on the look out for more snowman pieces after seeing how many cute ones you have - even a lamp! I'm so happy to see you still have your tree up (so do we!) and it does make a festive backdrop to your table.

P.S. You asked about the acrylic trees I used on my table - I got some from Pharmasave (Canadian drug store chain) and some from Sears catalogue.

Pinky, you may be in FL by now but I'm lovin' all your snowmen up here in PA! What a darling tablescape with so many wonderfully special touches. I wish I had every one of them.

Thanks for stopping by to welcome me back to blogging & for sharing it your new pretty home.
I thoroughly enjoyed it.

fondly,
Rett

Your table is gorgeous Pinky! I love the snowflake dishes....so pretty! I love, love, love that tablecloth! Where did you get it? The same thing has been happening to me with the pictures not uploading to blogger! It is very frustrating for sure! I have been using HTML as well. It has happened a few times before, but never for this many days in a row! I have read that other people are having the same problem, so it's nice to know that I am not alone! Angie xo
