Farewell to Winter Tablescape

I put together this little tablescape as a farewell to winter.

The cheerful colors brighten my day.

The cute little snowman mugs were a gift from a family friend and are some of my favorite things!

The mugs pair well with the cranberry plates and glasses that I purchased several years ago from a local gift shop.

The square white plates were purchased at Homegoods.

I have a weakness for vintage silver plated flatware. I can hardly walk past it without purchasing more.

I have a nice collection of Remembrance by Rogers Brothers. The quilted placemats were ordered from Neiman Marcus several years ago.

I used a single blooming orchid for the centerpiece.

The tall orchid is elegant without obstructing conversation.

I just adore those mugs!!! As we don't have much snow here in Australia I don't often see anything like that in our shops.
I need to come for a holiday (with empty suitcases) to America!!
Very pretty table,
Suzyq

This is darling with your snowman. And your cranberry glass is so beautiful in the sunlight. Love that shade of glass.

So long, Winter!!! Hello, sweet Spring!!! I like the way you're ushering Winter out with style instead of just kickin' it to the curb! The cranberry and white is absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!!

What a cheery table with the bright light and colorful elements. Sorry I can't relate to the goodbye to winter theme since it's been in the 80's for weeks here in FL! But good for the rest of you coming into Spring.

Can't believe that winter is officially behind us. Although it's been pretty mild, I am happy to see it go. Bring on Spring! Thanks for sharing, liz
