We finally got snow! We actually got snow a week ago but it melted away and this morning I woke up to big wet fluffy snowflakes that once again covered the ground. To celebrate I created a centerpiece on my dining room table using my opalescent blue Jewel and Fan pattern bowl, made by the Jefferson Glass Company in the early 1900's, as the inspiration piece.
I bought the placemats at a garage sale a couple of years ago and thought they might fit in well, a little too off white but they'll work and they'll help keep the tablecloth clean so that's always a plus.
I used white candles to represent the white snow that covered the ground.
The glass prisms represent icicles and I used my glittery snowball ornaments once again. I made the paper snowflakes.
The bowl is not the original brides bowl that would have went with this silver plated holder, I just put the two together. And therefore I have made it a "married piece".
I love the way the blue looks with silver, and how the blue reflects in the plateau mirror
I recently bought these two napkin rings for $1 each. The one of the left has a fan on it and initials, the other one has Allie engraved on the underside.
Here is a glimpse looking outside the window, and a cute little snowman flag
and here is this cute snowman, my first snowman decoration, that I bought since my last post when I said I had none.
Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful week!
