Chili Dinner on a CHILLY night!!

On saturday night we had our best friends over for dinner. It was a cold day and night so we made chili. I set a snowflake table, hoping it just landed on the table and not outside!!!  The tablecloth is so pretty with the snowflakes. The dishes I found at the dollar store a few years ago:)
I made the centerpiece by assembling 3 items. This large hurricane I found at Walmart! It didn't come with the glass shelf but the 4 inch candle holder fit in there perfectly!  I put faux snow in the bottome with pind cones, tiny ornamants and snowballs, then put snowflakes around the candle.
 The other hurricane I had bought at a gift shop. I just added a candle ring to it.
 I created a snowy scene in my little lantern.
 I love these pedestal bowls, they are perfect for our chili.
 Icy glasses for our bevereages.
 I moved the fork so you could see the snowflake on the napkins.

 I had to add the snowman pitcher too.

 The little snowman was purchased at a local museum. They have a team of volunteers who make all kinds of ornamebts and they have to be created from ALL natural materials. I loved the snowman.

 The chili bubbling on the stove
 And my bowl. In use diced tomatoes instead of crushed and we love "chili mac".
  Thanks for your visit. Hope everyone is warm and cozy.  XO, Pinky
