Oh, how I love this time of year! One of my favorite days is the first snow of the season. Unfortunately, we haven't had that day yet. Here we are, high in the Rocky Mountains, and today it was 50 degrees! So I decided to make my own Snow Day. I've gathered just about everything white, silvery or glittery that I had in the house. I started with a white table cloth, then pulled out the silver chargers.
Next came my formal china-Ranier by Noritake. That silver band around the plates really adds to the sparkle. I pulled out my formal crystal-Fostoria brand, but for the life of me I can't remember the pattern name. White napkins with bright snowflake napkin rings from Kohl's are next. I used my not-so formal flatware from Onieda, purchased from Kohl's this fall. I liked the sparkle with the plates.
I filled my hurricane with white, matte silver and bright silver beads from Pier 1. Then my silver candle sticks that are not real silver but shine in the candle light. White candles add a soft glow and reflect off of all the silver.
I wrapped a piece of silver bead garland around the hurricane and added some silver beads left over from Mardi Gras. I found the little candles that are embellished with snowflakes at Home Goods. They are just too cute.
Now I know that there will come a day in the not too distant future that I will be cussing and cursing the snow and wishing for Spring. But for today, I will look forward to our first snow.
