winter tablescape

This is my first tablescape I've posted.  We are not fancy folk and I don't have tons of dinner dishes.  We use Corelle 'Butterfly Gold' for everyday - they still work after almost 34 years :-)  I have 'good' dishes which are Denby Shamrock pattern which we use about 5 times a year. I also dug out my grandmother's flow blue dishes (what's left of them) and use them frequently.  And, I have Christmas dishes which I use from mid-November through New Year's.  This year I found these snowflake dishes really cheap  on sale before Christmas.  Why oh why didn't I buy 2 sets!  There are only enough for 4 people so we have had 2 small dinner parties using them this month and we use them for every meal.  I decided to set the table in a winter theme of white and silver.

This table setting is quite simple but I like the silvery, sparkly candlelight idea for a winter supper of heart- warming beef stew and home made rolls.

I am joining Susan at  Come on over and view some other tablescapes for Tablescape Thursday!




  1. Your tablescape is exquisite Pamela, along with wonderful photography to capture the essence of a winter setting.
    I love the dishes with the charm of snowflakes, and the silvery colours....So lovely!
    I have the same tea votives in gold....don't you love them?
    You did an amazing job!
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Love your photos. I only have a cannon digital so I don't know how to get great pictures. If I turn off flash they are too dark. I like your snowflake plates and the sweet napkins

  3. Love that silvery sparkle. For a first timer, I'd say you're off to a very fine start!

  4. You did GOOD!!! I love the simple elegant style of it all.
    Are you getting a storm there? It is stormy here and the wind is starting to pick up.We think alike I have a big pot of root veggies roasting in the oven and oatmeal bread rising beside the wood pellet stove.I would not want to lose power before my bread is baked!

    Take care,

  5. Hi Pamela:

    Welcome to tablescaping. Your table looks glorious - like a little burst of winter blew through your home.

    As you start of the venture of tablescaping I have on suggestion. You should keep your eyes open for a set (I'd get it for 12) of white dishes. You can use that as your base and then add touches of color. When you're short on plates (as with your set of 4) you can do every other place with white and then the pattern.

    Good luck!

  6. Hi Pamela,
    I am so happy you have joined me for tea! Your table is very pretty and sparkly!
    We are in the middle of our winter storm here and I assume you are as well. I just took some muffins out of the oven and I'm glad I got them made in case we lose our power. Hopefully we won't!
    I am originally from Riverview, NB myself and I still have lots of family over there.
    I am a Christian and so happy to 'meet' you. And I am your newest follower! Stay cozy.
