A Winter's Theme Tablescape

Inspiration struck this morning and I quickly
 put together this winter themed tablescape
 for our breakfast table.
Luckily I still hadn't completely packed up 
the remaining Christmas decorations on 
the living room coffee table or the 
dining room buffet.
Procrastination sometimes pays off!
I did this while Larry was shaving.  
I then asked him: 
"You know how the breakfast 
table has been bugging me since I
 removed the Christmas tablescape?"
He replied: 
"I did not know that."
Well anyway, that has been solved and
we can now get on with our lives.
I used the snowflake tablerunner with
the 'bling' from the DR buffet.
 I used the silver trees from the 
LR coffee table for the sparkle.
I had a forest of silver and crystal.
 All after Christmas sales from years ago.
 I kept the table colors all in silver, crystal, 
and shades of white.
 To bobeche or not to bobeche?
I love these crystal trees. They are
at least 40 years old.
I had two choices for placemats. 
These silver and gold confetti ones
look very New Year's celebration.
Or I can use these silver round ones.
I have these frosted glass chargers with 
snowflake design. How perfect!
My basic Ivory Longaberger pottery.
A little glass salad/dessert plate to add more 
layers and sparkle.
Silver snowflake napkin rings and ivory lace 
trimmed napkins. I found those napkins at a
thrift store for 25¢ each still with their tags.   
Complete place setting using glitter placemats.
Complete place setting using round silver placemats.
I love how the snowflake napkin rings 
coordinate with the snowflake glass 
chargers. Lots of snowflakes here.
 It's all working out using things I have.
Didn't realize I had so many snowflake design
items until I pulled them all together.
I went with the silver placemats.
 Table complete in record time.
 Luckily the snowflake glasses I used for
 Christmas were just stored in the family 
room cabinets. I grabbed a couple. 
The glass snowball votives were handy too.
My little bit of winter in
south Florida.
We had a little 'cool' spell here too.
This is as close as we'll get to
