My dear dish friend Monica challenged me to do a snow table. Originally, I thought maybe snowmen, but it didn't turn out that way. Instead, I went the elegant Snow Queen route. I am sure this is what her table might look like. Since I had my white Fiesta out and my HLC Greek key pattern, I decided to use that in a new way. I had used a little of both on my New Year's Table, but this is a totally different look.
I chose to go with silver, white, and ivory.
The crystal candle holders and the tall, white tapers add to the elegance.
I think in the Snow Queen's kingdom, there are probably silver reindeer, so I put a couple on the table.
I have used the glassware during the fall season before, but I love them on this winter table.
The napkin rings were a gift from my friend Monica. I have used them numerous times, and I love the bejeweled look of them.
My Aunt Hyacinth gave me the silver pieces for Christmas last year. We devised a plan to scour flea markets, garage sales, and thrift stores and fill a box with treasures to give to each other. These were in my box!
The little creamer is edged along the handle in gold. Very elegant. I am sure I won't be putting that in the dishwasher!
Homer Laughlin China (HLC) Greek key pattern china. It is very classic.
The table cloth came from a thrift shop. I pretty much buy most of my linens from thrift stores. Maybe it is because people cast off a lot things that have a vintage look and feel, and I happen to love those things.
Love this gravy boat! That shape is magnificent.
This is a snow table--see the snow???
Another piece from my Aunt Hyacinth. I thought about polishing the silver, but I like the aged look. Again, it feels vintage to me.
I am sharing at Between Naps on the Porch.
