Winter and white are a natural fit this time of year. The weather here is cold and blustery and seems to etch a frosted glaze over the landscape. I was inspired to set an all white table. An all white table with a little touch of silver and a tiny tad of gold
Each place was set with a stack of mismatched white dishes on top of a silver handled utility tray that was called into duty as a charger.
I chose these white plates for their lovely edges. Because there is SO much white, I was very aware to choose plates that had textured edges to give interest.
A sparkly little frosty pine cone sits in the bowl as a little treat for guests.
A white damask napkin looks like a bow folded in a silver napkin ring.
The centerpiece is a tall pedestaled vase (I use for kitchen utensils) filled with white spray painted branches and giant white snapdragons.
It's been so long since I have purchased flowers. It was a joy to bring home a tissue wrapped bunch of these magnificent blooms!
Mercury Glass inspired candles give a warm glow to the table. It was VERY difficult for me to set this table without a speck of color. Using lots of candles brought the warmth to the table that makes it inviting.
To add a little extra sparkle I added a pretty candle collar.
Votives, that mirror the other candlesticks, illuminate each place. Each candle is nestled in a little faux snow in the bottom of the votive.
Dessert plates are set on a tiered pedestal. I added glitzy pine cones and a few silver ornaments on the bottom tier.
Antique porcelain silverware caddies hold dessert forks and spoons for coffee. These were an auction treasure! They are embellished with hand painted gold fleur de lis and edging.
Winter white and frosty, this table calls for a warm and cozy dinner...
