Christmas Snowmen

Here is a look at a Snowman & Snow-woman tablescape I did a few years ago before I had a blog.
I like to combine these two with the acrylic light-up Christmas trees I have had for quite awhile now.
It makes for an icy winter-y feel.


White snowflakes hung from my chandelier add to the effect.

A centerpiece is created by placing small "disco-ball" ornaments inside a glass bowl which is surrounded by a white feather boa and some silver berry picks.

Square white dinner plates and clear glass salad plates sit atop silver chargers.

A snowy scene outside makes the perfect backdrop.


Here are a few other places this snowman family (yes, the Mr. & Mrs. have a son!) has shown up around our house during past Christmas seasons.

On a table set for a Christmas buffet

On a dinner tablescape using a long mirror as a table runner (the snowmen do not light up on their own but I've inserted battery operated LED lights inside so that they are illuminated)

On one of  the tasting stations at our Wine Tasting last year - this is the dessert wine station

(Sorry blurry pic) This year, they are sitting on a shelf in our kitchen


On the kitchen table for a ladies Christmas luncheon

Be sure to head on over to Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch and enjoy a few minutes of "tablescape down-time" during your hectic holiday schedule!

How can you not like that cute frosty family? In each instance, they look right at home.
Have you named they yet? I would.

They'll be good to use during January too.

So sparkly and pretty. I love the bowls filled with snow and ornaments. I think it's going to be bowls and apothecary jars filled with goodies for my centerpiece this year. Sugar Plum Fairies....yes, I'm leaning toward that.

Oh so pretty...I love them with the lights making them glow. This table just screams winter and that picture with the snow in the background is perfect. Very pretty.

Love all the sparkles and the snowmen. I think aside from the Nativity, the snowmen are my favorite Christmas items. Your tablescape is magical. I used snowmen for my tablescape too but I used traditional colors...Christine
