January is such a hard month to be excited about decorating or setting fun tables. Spring is so easy to come up with ideas but January.... not fun. That being said, I love cardinals. So springing off that idea, I decided to do a red and white table with snow. But I had no cardinal plates so how do you create a table without the stars? So I added some little cardinals to the party but not on the plate.
Now in East Tennessee, January can be 70, like two Sundays ago or it can be cold and snowy. So with this January being warm, I thought the family could use some snow, if only on the table.
Start with a stark white tablecloth.
My trusty Ikea chargers....
Red dinner plates along with the little crock pots add the punch of color, like a little cardinal on a snowy day. The Mikasa French Countryside salad plates break up the red and make the table look very sophisticated.
Red flatware. I am always looking for a reason to use the red flatware.
Red napkins with painted white snowflake napkin rings. These napkin rings were tin but painted they look so much prettier.
Pine cone trees found at 90 percent off touched with snow. Even if I take the pine cones off the tree, it would still be a bargain.
Cardinals over looking the table.
The cutest cardinal and birdbath salt and pepper shakers. They were a great find.
My new Target faux bois mercury cake plate. Another great find at 70 percent off. The little cardinal sits atop the last of the holiday sprigs.
I hope you enjoy my winter table. Thank you for visiting.
