Winter Ice

winter ice tablescape
Hope everyone is having a good day!  We’re having a beautiful sunny day here in south Louisiana with highs in the low 60’s!  Even though we don’t have any ice outside, I wanted to join in at the party starting tonight over at Cuisine Kathleen’s.

I started by draping the table in a large piece of silver fabric that has a slight shimmer to it.  You may remember it from my Halloween table which you can see here.

Silver trimmed dinner plates are topped with a clear salad plate so the snowflake can show though.

Wine glasses are Marquis by Waterford.  I recently purchased 4 of them from Goodwill for $15.99!  They were brand new, still had the labels on them!  How sweet is that?!?  The iced tea glasses are by Gorham.
snowflake wine charms
Silver wine charms continue the wintry theme.
snowflakes as vase filler
I used silver champagne goblets for dessert glasses.  For the centerpiece, I used a large glass vase.  I filled it up with artificial snowflakes and inserted some branches from the yard.
make iced brances using spray adhesive and epsom salt
I sprayed the branches with spray adhesive and rolled them in Epsom salt.  I then sprayed them a final time to give the “ice” some staying power.

I drizzled the snow over the table to fill in the extra spaces.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Wherever you are, I hope you are comfy, warm and dry!

  16. You have depicted a lovely winter table!

  17. This is a lovely table, Tammy. What a bargain you got on your Waterford wine goblets -- still can't believe you found those brand new at the Goodwill! I never find anything like that; I guess I would need to go everyday to find something really good.

    I really love your centerpiece with the artificial snowflakes and your icy winter branches. You did a great job with those because they look amazingly realistic. Thanks for sharing how you made those!

    It is definitely bitter cold here today, with a wind that cuts right through your clothes. It sounds like it's nice and warm where you are. :) Have a wonderful weekend!
