Winter Dining Room Table, 2018

Good morning my friends. As you read this I am at the hospital with My Joe. he is having open heart surgery to replace his aortic valve. And prayers that you might offer are GREATLY appreciated. I will be at the hospital all week, he will be there for 4 to 5 days.
Now, onto the dining room. I set a table for winter to greet our guests. We won't have guests as such but rather visitors:) I didn't have to do a lot to change the table from Christmas to Winter.
 I did switch to these winter salad plates with the pine branches.
 And I made an arrangement in my leopard vase.

 I switched to this beautiful gold and balck runner as well.

 At dusk we light the candles, which are all LED.
 Except for the ones in the mercury glass holders.

 Icy branches and snowy pine cones make up the arrangement.

 The little trees that were on the plate stck are replaced with the leopard votives.

 I decided to add some snowflakes to the wine glasses.

Thanks so much for your visit. Joe and I have been VERY busy getting all the Christmas away. We have been going through the process (of preparing for this surgery) since Oct. but just found out last Thurs. that surgery would be on Tuesday! The anticipation has been very hard. We both just want it over with and he can start to recuperate.
XO, Pinky

  2. Just beautiful Pinky...I'm wild about your animal print accents and that gorgeous rug. Thoughts and prayers for Joe (and you) on his surgery and recuperation. ♥

  3. Pinky, your table looks so beautiful. prayers and healing thoughts for both of you as Joe goes through this surgery. xo

  4. I hope Joe is doing well after the surgery. It will be a relief to have him home again. Your table is beautiful. I love all the frosty branches and the snowflake in the wineglasses.

  5. Pinky: I am just finding this post. Your table is so lovely. I can only imagine that the stress of dealing with Joe's surgery these many months has been difficult. So happy it is all behind you and he is well and soon to be home. You can now show us lots more lovely tables.

  6. I love each element, and I love how they all work together to create a warm wintry table. I know all your visitors will enjoy it as much as I. Here's hoping everything went well.
