I have two wonderful winter tables for you to try when you’re not quite ready to let the magic, sparkle and glitter of the Christmas decorations go!
Transitioning From Christmas to Winter – Tips
- Use your neutral Christmas decor – no holiday specific theme or color
- Those Santa mugs? Pack them away.
- The elves, red and green ornaments, and poinsettia towels? Pack them away.
- The blinking HO-HO-HO sign, sorry, time to go.
- Use shades of winter – frosty tones like blues, silvers, golds and whites.
- Snowflakes and snowmen, yes!!
- Silver and gold ornaments can be used in tiered trays, centerpieces and vignettes as fillers.
- Mix in natural elements – they are God’s ornaments!
- Pinecones, branches, and tree slices can be used in winter decor.
- Don’t forget winter animals – deer, owls, and more can be used for winter decorating.
The First Wonderful Winter Table To Try
This first table uses elements from my my pink and sage green Christmas. I incorporated the frosty silver and gold tones with the addition of silver hydrangea flowers, bead garland and sparkly stars from Fourth of July.
At each place setting is a vintage silver footed bowl with ornaments and stars.
The centerpiece was created by placing the large matching silver footed bowl in the center of my Christmas wreath. I filled the bowl with pink mercury glass ornaments and silver hydrangea flowers. The wreath was decorated with stars, beaded picks, and a gold bead garland. Candles set a cozy and beautiful glow.
The Second Wonderful Winter Table To Try
This table uses the wintry colors of blue and white with just a touch of silver and gold.
A Wintery Blue and White Centerpiece
Using blue and white transferware I created two winter scenes. I filled each with fake snow flakes and placed snowflakes in one and a bottlebrush tree and a brass deer in the other.
I finished the centerpiece with these vintage cobalt blue bottles and tiny bottlebrush trees, adding in cupcake stands for varying heights.
A Wintery Blue and White Place Setting
Thinking outside the ring I used old furniture handles as my napkin rings. I used the beaded picks again to tuck in with the napkins. These went on top of blue glass dessert plates and white dinner plates.
