When Christmas Day is over, you don’t necessarily have to put away your holiday china–some many patterns feature winter scenes more than Christmas Day scenes so you can use them into the next month or more. Check out this winter sleighing snowmen tablescape using Debbie Mumm holiday china that works in January or February as well as December.
I began with a bare dining room table because the wood color reminds me of the winter woods. Then I used cotton placemats with a tiny green and burgundy plaid design, on which I placed my white 10 Strawberry Street dinnerware. The white color reminds me of winter’s snow. Next I placed a cotton napkin in burgundy with tiny white polka dots in a square shape on the dinner plate. Over the napkin, I placed a Debbie Mumm Sledding Characters salad plate by Sakura. There are four different characters on four salad plates.
For a centerpiece, I used three different soft snowmen figures I had. In Virginia, most of the annual snow, if any, tends to come in January and February, so snowmen are winter figures to me rather than holiday figures. So using them in a winter tablescape seems most appropriate. I placed pieces of real holly with berries and some fir pieces on the center of the table on which I placed the snowmen.
Three snowmen is a good number to use–in design, three always allow the guests to see part of the centerpiece from their seats. The snowmen are also not too tall to see over.So if you love savoring the winter season with snowmen and scenes of cute sleighing characters, check out figures and china you have to set a similar table. Extend the season and enjoy!
