Remember last week when I shared an easy Winter centerpiece using leftover greenery from Christmas? Well, today I’m going to show you how I use that same centerpiece and designed a snow white tablescape around it.
Most fresh greenery lasts about two weeks, so if you need to freshen a few boughs you can. I just snip some new branches off pine trees in my back yard when mine are starting to look a little dull. Because I’m surrounded by snowy mountains in Utah, I wanted to create a tablescape that reflects the season and what I see outside my window everyday.
I wanted the color scheme to be predominantly white, which can be tricky, because if it’s all white, it looks boring and lifeless. What I love so much about the snowy mountains is the contrast of the green pine trees and brown texture of the bark with the white snow. I used those same colors found in nature for my table–white mixed with brown and green.
Not only am I inspired by the beautiful views, but these lines of prose as well: “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ~~Lewis Carroll. Even Winter has its beauty that should be celebrated!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
