December Calendar Tablescape Inspiration

This is my final tablescape inspiration from my old 2010 Lang Calendar -- it's been fun using it for my tables this year!

The year ends playing happily in the snow!

And of course the dog joins in the fun!

A closer view of our winter friends.

And here's my table top version!

Let's move in a little closer......

....and watch a snowman dance!

All smiles!

I added a scarf that I got a couple of years ago in New York.

No top hats and red mittens -- my style is more fleece and green knit gloves.
Added my snowman plates (Cracker Barrel) over my red dinner plates (Marshall's)  with my treble clef flatware (e-bay) over my red, green and blue placemats (Marshall's) -- all of these I've had for several years.

Each plate has a different snow face.

These two have the cardinals....

He must want a kiss...with the mistletoe on his hat!

And here's our "formal" snowman in his top hat!
Red napkins were ones that my parents used every Christmas dinner at their home.  Napkin rings from Pier-1 a couple of years ago.

And, of course, a playful pup in the snow.

These trees matched the color theme perfectly.

A view from a falling snowflake.

So glad that you could join me for a "pretend" snow day....(my very favorite kind)!

See ya!

I'm joining Cuisine Kathleen for "Let's Dish"
