Welcome to The Tablescaper.
Have you felt that cold blast of freezing cold air?
It seems that Kathleen, of Cuisine Kathleen, is having her Winter Tablescape Party at the right time.
I purchased these little plates with our Arctic friends at an After Christmas Sale at Anthropologie.
While the Puffin is cute, …
…I think the White Fox is my favorite.
These Gibson plates were just the right shading. While I’ve used these plates for everyday, I don’t think I’ve ever used them in a post before. I got them last year at Liquidators. Kathleen had spied them in a flyer – a boxed set of 16 pieces for $19.99. I didn’t remember the price so I checked with Kathleen. She said that we later saw them at a Dollar King store where the boxed set was $14.99. Both were a great deal. Kathleen, I don’t think you’ve ever used yours in a post either, have you?
I feel that in the past, when I’ve prepared an icy wintry table, I’ve leaned toward silver and light blue.
It was fun to try something different, in more of the aqua family.
Even the napkin rings gave me a shiver (a purchase from Century 21 awhile ago).
The hurricanes were a recent purchase from HomeGoods, but the saucer champagne (from Ikea) and wine glasses (dollar store!) are from a number of years ago.
It always makes me laugh when I use my everyday flatware (Oneida) but it seemed to have the right spiky touch.
So, rather than fighting that blast of shivering cold air…
Try to embrace it!
