A dangerous icy snow mix is headed our way; along with a high of only six degrees come Monday. Burr! So, I’m building a snowman inside my warm, cozy kitchen.
Snowman table that is — on my kitchen island.
For breakfast this weekend, hubby and I will be warding off the arctic chill (blast?) with bowls of warm oatmeal and cups of peppermint-flavored coffee.
We’re suppose to be going out to dinner Saturday night as part of Pittsburgh’s Restaurant Week. Not so sure that’s going to happen, as the weather forecast is for icy driving conditions. I sure hope not, as I’ve been really looking forward to dinner at The Roost. On Tuesday night we ate at the Twisted Frenchman. Both are newer, highly rated restaurants we’ve been wanting to try. More frequent dining out is part of our new retirement lifestyle.
Come in from the cold and join me at a snowman table for some frosty fun in the kitchen.
During the holiday season, I like to create different tablescapes in the living room and kitchen; rotating between seven different holiday patterns. But, for an everyday, casual Christmas table and meal, I set out my go-to seasonal dishes.
Pfaltzgraff’s Nordic Christmas pattern graces the kitchen table and island bar for most of December and January.
Snowflake, reindeer, and evergreen tree motifs decorate the dishes; perfect for the winter holiday season. Muted shades of blue, brown, burgundy and green are overlaid on the ivory matte plates.
Today’s post is part of the Christmas Tablescape Blog Hop, hosted by Chloe of Celebrate & Decorate. All this week, 21 stylists share their holiday table creations for your viewing pleasure.
We’re midway through the blog hop, so be sure to return tomorrow and Friday to see all the festively decorated tables.
It’s a cold morning with snowflakes flying, reminding me of five snowman centerpieces I haven’t shared with you.
This being my first few months blogging (right smack in the middle of the holiday season), there were only so many seasonal tablescapes I had time to feature.
This weekend I plan to pack away the last of winter theme decorations and tableware. Before I do, I thought I’d share a couple pictures of each table, focusing on the snowman centerpieces.
