Set The Table - Warm Winter Whites

Set the Table - Winter Whites


It almost doesn't feel like Winter here in Southern Ontario.  The weather has been mild and rainy.  At the time of writing this, all the snow has vanished in the city.  It is so dark and dreary.  The sun doesn't shine.  I think it is time to brighten things up and Set the Table in Cosy Winter Whites and while I'm at it, light the candles.

I started with some elements that may seem obviously Christmas such as the flocked pine boughs, pine cones and the little glitter house.  To me, they read as

Winter.

I find comfort in using antiques and vintage pieces in my decorating.  There is something about patina and a well-worn look that I like.  I started with the antique table cloth.  It is lacy and allows the warmth of the wood table to show through.

I have a collection of silver trays that I use as chargers. The crystal goblets are antique, a gift from a wonderful friend.  The silver flatware is Adam pattern from the early 1900's.

The china is mix and match and not at all old.  The dinner plates are Skye McGhie Cream Lace.  Salads are by Coastline and the small brown and white plates are actually hand painted saucers that I bought at a garage sale a couple of years ago.  Cups and saucers are Richmond by Johnson Bros.

I really like the little clip-on white birds.  They were once Christmas ornaments, but I have been clipping them onto napkins instead of using napkin rings.

My little glitter house was a bargain after Christmas at Michael's.





I like that the lacy pattern of the tablecloth echoes the dishes, and the napkins, and the crystal.

Did you notice the Lambskins on the backs of the chairs?  They are very cosy.


White in winter - Creamy, Warm, and Beautiful!
