I had my eye on this shiny silver penguin at a local hardware store for awhile now and when the post holiday sales were on, I scooped him up for half price ($10). I was also thrilled to find the mercury glass silver trees at a local drug store also at half price ($7 ea)
I put Mr. P. and the trees inside an icy wreath on a round tray with some LED cordless lights, some silver berry picks and silver "disco" balls. If you look close, you can see the frosty snowflake on each of the trees.
I tucked in some of these long silver twig-like strands on each side and flanked them with the snowflake hurricane shades set on mirrors.
These snowflakes are hung from my chandelier.
My black and white salad plates topped a white dinner plate which sits on a silver charger.
As night falls, the silver icy look takes on a warmer glow...
The black, white and silver combo gave me an idea to make this a celebratory tablescape so ....
...I added a few items and it becomes a Happy New Year 'scape!
