Tablescapes, Snowmen and Scarves

We don’t get a lot of snow in my Southern state

So, it is up to me,  a snowy scene to create


Even though I was only setting the table for 4, to keep things cozy and warm on the glass I used 4 more

My snowman centerpiece has peppermint ears, and a scarf tied in a Christmas bow

And the plates can’t wait to hold something divine

and there are quite a few glasses on hand for cheers!

Carrot sticks are in bowls for a little crunching


Before it comes time for more serious munching!

You will be surprised when you see where my snowman ends up next!

Note:  *I used a red and white napkin to create the “candy cane” or “scarf stripe” look and taped the underside to secure the end

    Oh, Jenna, there is so much to talk about with this table! I’ll be using your extra place mat trick on my round kitchen table. I love that! Also, your snowman plates are awesome and fun! Mr. Snowman is adorable, and the wine bottle sweater fits the theme perfectly. I love it all – oh, napkins, too. 🙂 Thanks for the fun!

  18. What a Holly Jolly table! Just right for the weather we are having here in my area right now. I am sure any guest will enjoy setting around your table. Love all the neat ideas.


  19. Cute, Cute Cute! Great idea with layering the placemats.

    I love your jolly table.

    When I was teaching we had a snowman tree. I made the tree topper and they all made snowman ornaments. Wish I had a picture. It all started with one ornament I bought at a craft fair.

  22. SUPER cool how you mimicked the red & white scarf!!!! What a great idea!!! If you would like some snowy weather, I’d be more than happy to send you EVERY bit of what we get here this winter! We got our first dose of it yesterday. It was only a dusting, but boy oh boy did it ever wreak havoc! As my husband said, “People gotta get their snow legs on for the year still!” 🙂
