Tablescape Thursday - It's Snow Romantic!

It's Tablescape Thursday again! I didn't think I was going to get to play this week because of a busy weekend schedule -- but when it started to sleet and snow this afternoon they closed the buildings at 4:30 (since we have classes from 9am to 9 pm -- I usually work until 6 on Wednesdays) and then choir practice was cancelled -- so I decided to do a last minute table -- full of snow romance!

Welcome to our snow and ice table.

A place for you!

Winter romance centerpiece

Our couple gaze loveingly into each others eyes.

Don't you love a smooth dip?

The birds gather to watch the waltz.

The trees are beginning to be covered in snow.

Tea lights in mercury votives

Layered snowflake tealight holder over depression glass saucer.

A better view of the glass snowflake.

Sheer white napkin over white cloth napkin - white ceramic bow napkin ring.

Layers of dishes and silverware.

A reflection of the etched glass on the knife.

Etched glass water and wine glasses.

Glass salad bowls.

Over a crystal plate layered over a snowflake and the white Gibson dinner plate.

Tabletop overview.

Centerpiece overview.

A lovely Winter's ball.

Let's dim the lights.......

....and let the lover's waltz begin.

Goodnight from our snowy table.

Be sure to visit our hostess Susan of "Between Naps On The Porch" to see lots of talented tabletop designers.

See ya!

(I forgot to take this week's picture of my paperwhite -- only one of the bulbs seems to have decided to grow -- I get another picture up next week)


  1. Love your snowy table! It's so pretty!


  2. That is the cutest snowman centerpiece I've seen! It's just cheerful. So glad you got to play this week. And so IMPRESSED that you could put together such a pretty table so quickly.

    I'm bowing out this week and just enjoying some inspiration.

  3. How pretty, Martha! Love that cute snow couple. Since it has been snowing quite regularly since Cmas, the snow couple here would be arguing about who was going to go shovel the latest foot of snow! :) It gets old pretty fast!
    I love how everything shines and shimmers. Just lovely!

  4. Wow, I just love those little bow napkin rings! I wish they were mine...

  5. this is a very pretty table ... love the dancers ... love the soup/salad bowls ... the pattern looks like it was made to specifically go with your silverware ... very, very nice. Thanks for sharing this beautiful tablescape ... and thanks for visiting me. See ya next week!

  6. Martha,
    You did super!
    Love the theme and how you decorated your table with clear dishes and white. Snowy and icy pretty.

    The snowflake dish is sweet!

    God bless ya sweetie and have a fantastic day!!!

  24. Your depression glass saucer is boopee..I have a covered butter dish just like it. I loved this table and would have loved to have had it last night for some romantic anniversary dinner...but alas...was so sick...I slept on the couch and we had know you have been married a while when.....have a good week my friend.

  25. This is lovely, Martha, with all of the depression glass. And I adore that centepiece. It's as cute as can be! A super winter tablescape...


    Sheila :-)

  26. This is a very pretty table scape! I would like to invite you to link this up to my new link party, Masterpiece Monday, at Boogieboard Cottage. The link will be up all week. Take care, Mary :O)

  27. Did you know you have no comment reply on your blog profile? Anywho, I went back to my dollar tree for more biscotti.... sadly all gone, now I have to ration what I have left. Thanks for stopping by and fix that reply thingy. Go to your profile and edit.

  28. Martha, this table must have been beautiful to sit at with the candlelight reflecting in all the glass! Those snowmen are so romantic doing their waltz, with the love birds watching! Very nice! Linda

  29. That is the cutest little snowmen dancing centerpiece. I've never seen anything like it.

  30. Oh how sweet it is!!! The snow couple are adorable, waltzing the night away! WE ahve SNOW like crazy so this would be a perfect atble here too. Thanks for sharing. XO, Pinky

  31. I just love all that white! I really love the etched stemware! That is just gorgeous. Beautiful table!!

  32. So cute with the snow couple dancing! Love how you made romance for V's day mix with a snow theme! Great idea to put a snowflake under a clear plate, that creates the "matching" dishes for the theme without spending lots or having storage issues!


  33. What a lovely winter's ball table! And to think you put it together at the last minute! Beautiful table, and I like how you used clear glass and crystal to make it look "icy". Great job!

  34. Martha, this is so very pretty. I just love the little dancing snowmen - so romantic!

  35. Love your waltzing snow couple! Your etching reflection in your knife is one of my favorite details on your wintry table!

  36. Love this snow and ice,beautiful!

  40. Hi lovely lady.
    Your Tablescape is just Beauitiful !!1 I love the white and crystal with your snow people for your centerpiece so sweet just like you ~~~ I hope you and your family have a great weekend !!

  41. Just beautiful Martha! I love those glass bowls! This past summer I got a set of 4 of the depression glass saucers you showed for only $1.00. I was so excited. I put the box in the back seat. When I went to get them out, the box slid and crashed to the pavement. All were broken! I was so crushed!

  42. So pretty! You've reminded me that I bought some clear glass dinnerware ages ago and have not used it in FOREVER! Your tablescape is so gorgeous... I've got to get mine out and use it!

  43. The snow people look to be having a very romantic time!

  44. Martha, I love your table! The crystal and silver and white look very elegant. Love your flatware and your etched stemware - really, everything is just so pretty all together.
    Blessings, Beth

  45. Lovely! Your little snow people are too sweet!

  46. What a lovely Winter table you have set! This is an area I am very weak I look closely at everything you do. Practice? I suppose that's the answer...but..just not too secure doing it.
    Hugs to you, sweet friend!

  47. This is just so magical, Martha -- Snow and Ice... lovely! I really love the centerpiece and the little tree, and those napkin holders are adorable. Beautiful tablescape, Martha!
