Winter Wonderland

This week we are enjoying cold weather -- a rare treat for us in Alabama. I am thankful for at least a few days to enjoy snuggling up by the fire with a cup of tea. With its winter wonderland tablescape still in place since our New Year's Day brunch, our dining room is a perfect spot to gather this week for a steaming hot bowl of soup.

The children helped me pull this look together for the party. See yesterday's post to learn how the boys decorated these sparkly candles. Clustered on a silver tray with cotton snow, silver beads and glittery wired ribbon, I can enjoy this wintry look throughout the month. Silver stars and icicle ornaments dangle from the chandelier, and sheer ribbons flutter in the candlelight. Fresh greenery tucked into the branches of the chandelier completes this refreshing wintertime look.

Here's to drawing closer to the fire -- and each other -- in the New Year!

Hi Melissa,
Love your blog. I have been a faithful reader for a year or so now, and I love all your ideas that you share with us. For the new year, I am trying to leave more comments so people know how much I appreciate their efforts and time spent with their posts. So thank you, it has been so much fun watching your little family this past year.
