It’s still snowing in my dining room

The month of January is  long and cold

I hope January flies right by this year, and brings NO snow to us down here!


Juicy Details

* the white fur collars on the silver jars are cuffs cut off of CC’s Christmas tights…she would have no part of the furry trim  😊


The silver Ball jars were made with a light coat of silver spray paint, then some silver glitter spray and then  lightly sanded here and there

The napkin rings are a length of button burlap ribbon

Check out the underside of your placemats,  there is often a solid fabric on the back.  These black placemats are the back side of some old paisley ones

    Jenna, Love your rhyming fun and skating snowmen! Your creative mind must never stop with how you repurposed the cuffs from CC’s Christmas tights for your silver jars 🙂 The temperatures are plummeting, I need lots of warm cups of cheer and comfort food!

    A very cute table! Lovin’ the skating snowmen. We had snow all day yesterday, luckily it was just pretty to look at and didn’t cause too much trouble:@)

    This was as much fun to read as to look at!

    Your charming snowman table is perfect for this snowy January morning in Ohio. I love snowmen on the table for a happy breakfast of french toast or a delightful lunch of steaming tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Exactly what we have planned for today! Snowmen and all!

    This would be perfect on my table today as Maine is frozen over! Unfortunately, the snow is too icy to do any snowman building so the pretend ones would have to do! You’re off to a good start in 2015.

    Oh, Jenna, this is one of the happiest tablescapes I’ve ever seen! I collect snowmen, but never thought of displaying them this way (BTW, I LOVE the snowman on the sled!!) I actually giggled as I looked at your photos and you have absolutely made my day! Thank you for the early morning smile. What a great setting for a winter day! Thanks for sharing…..Rosie

  7. I love those snowmen! They make me smile. What a joy to have those cheery little fellas gracing your table!

    What a fun, fun table, Jenna…I ♥ snowmen/women. The plates make me smile, so darned cute.
    I am the opposite of you…it’s winter, I want lots of snow if it has to be cold!
    Have a wonderful week.

    So cheerful and whimsical! Your details are amazing and I love all the snowmen.

  10. I collect snowmen so this table was pure joy for me! I love your skating snowmen! Your plates are too cute! The whole table makes me smile! Thank you for the hints too!
    Blessings My Friend,

    Adorable! Where did you find the snow? I was looking for some snow-like stuff this year. Love it!

    • hi Holly, I got the snow at Pottery Barn maybe 5 years ago or more? I just put it back it the box and use it again and again~ I have seen kosher salt used too, and cotton balls~

  12. Ah, it’s such a fun table! Thank you for sharing. You are one of the features today at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Here is the link to this week’s party. Hope to see you again at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

    Hi Jenna,
    Your Ice Skating Snowmen tablescape is the most adorable winter scape. I actually have a winter snowman collection and they have such sweet personalities. We are featuring your post on Full Plate Thursday, 570 this week. Thanks so much for sharing with us and come back to see us real soon!
