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!

    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

    I am the opposite of you…it’s winter, I want lots of snow if it has to be cold!
