Multi-colored Snowflake Sparkle Tablescape
I thought I had lots of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but somehow time has once again gone much too quickly. Although the table has been set for a week I am just now getting to blogging about it.
I set it for a cheerful brunch with girlfriends, but was not feeling very cheery after the events of last week. My heart goes out to those in their loss. May the Lord give them comfort and strength. May he hold them in his arms as he is holding those who are now in his presence.
As I was working on it, Emma decided she should be quality control.
I came back into the room to see she was tasting the ivy plant. She thought that it was a great appetizer. Luckily, she is very graceful so my antique stemware was safe.
I fell in love with the multi-colored snowflake material when it came into Bolts. I knew it would make for a cheerful table.
I found the placemats at Target. The only other new item was Emma’s snack - the ivy topiary from Trader Joe's.
My favorite white chargers.
I last used the red plates for my Oh Canada tablescape.
The tree place card holders are from Pier 1 few years ago. I used two of the four colors.
When I took the pictures last week the sun was shining.
Today it’s raining (yeah!), so the candles would definitely be needed.
I leave you with this poem I found online.
Snowflakes falling from the sky
Help remind us exactly why
Christmas came so long ago
Cleansing the earth like each new snow
One pure, unique, and perfect form,
Who came to earth to withstand the storm.
Each snowflake melts as does the ice,
But we can’t forget the sacrifice;
So display this symbol of the season
To recollect what gives us reason
One pure, unique and perfect form,
Who came to earth to transcend the storm.
Stitch at you Soon,
