Let It Snow

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and holiday season!  I had so much fun spending time with my family.  My son was home for 2 days and he kept everything lively here at home.  He and my middle daughter played a game of Twister Christmas night that had us all laughing until we cried.  My kitchen floor became an impromptu race track for some remote controlled cars that my grandsons received.  Although I do miss the laughter and fun we had Christmas day, it’s so nice to sit back and relax for a bit now.

For Christmas dinner, I set up the island in my kitchen for my grandsons.  I wanted the setting to be playful and fun, but very simple.  I wish I had thought to use a white tablecloth so it would have looked more “snowy”, but this was put together super quickly and I just didn’t think about it.

I thought these plates decorated with a merry snowman would be perfect for them.

Silverware was tucked inside a blue stocking.

White napkins were decorated with blue and white curling ribbon and a mitten ornament.

Snowflake goblets completed each place setting.

Greenery was decorated with red berries and blue and red ornaments for the centerpiece.

A snowman nutcracker took center stage.

Peppermint striped candles were placed at each end of the greenery.

Cute little snow people salt and pepper shakers were a thrift store find.

I love this little thrift store find!  This roly poly snowman is a jam jar and his sole purpose in the setting was to look adorable!

My grandsons really enjoy having their own special “table” at Christmas and I had so much fun creating this one for them!

DG, it looks adorable! I bet they loved it! I bought 4 of those Lenox Holiday kiddie sets, but now we need more, and they don't make them anymore! They look like the real thing!
I have snowman plates I should give to dil, she can do a table for all 8 that come from Christmas with them. Thanks for the idea!
Have a wonderful week and Happy 2012!
