Snowmen Everywhere

Snowmen  Everywhere 
A few years ago my daughter and I set several tables at our church Ladies Christmas Banquet. This is one of the sets of dishes that we used. I set this table for our Christmas morning breakfast. I have seen so many other snowmen tables that I thought I would post our table.
This table is in our breakfast room. I decide to use mats as we had more than four around this table. It's called togetherness!!! The place mates are a green stripe. I'm sure you will see these again as they are reversible, (guess what holiday) I have had these for several years and believe that they are from Marshal's.

The plates and cups are from Big Lots. Glasses were rescued before they were placed in my Mom's garage sale. I was lucky.

 The center piece is a acrylic tray that I received as gift as was the snowman candle holder. The star is from a set I use for my 4th of July table. In the center of the star is an vintage restaurant creamer (toothpick holder for now) yard sale I think. Votive candles were in my candle cabinet.

 The flatware caddies were added after Christmas sale at Big Lots. The flatware is Cambridge from Ross.

 The snowman has a smile as he knows he gets to stay around longer than the one  that was built on my daughters car.

Yes my trees are still up till the weekend as I was late getting them up and want to enjoy them as long as I can get away with.
I hope to link up with other blogger table scape sites as soon as my in house computer tech has time for a training session.
