Winter Wonderland Table

I am joining Kathleen from Cuisine Kathleen for her Christmas table challenge.I was going to change things up this year by decorating with some calming winter whites.
My inspiration is from Dr. Christmas. Of course his table is over the top, but I wanted to something similar. I don't think having so trees so near to the chairs is a good idea, but it looks great!


I am using a faux white fur runner for the table, along with a  pretty white tablecloth.
It would be great fun to sew some faux chair covers.  I found the runner at Marshalls.
When I was in line, another lady came up to  me and was so excited by it.  I told her, there was 1 left...ha ha


I decked the chandelier with white snow flakes and pearls.  I love dressing our chandeliers.
It's like icing on the cake.


Some bottle brush Xmas trees, rose balls and pretty candle holders.
I did also used all white dishware from Atelier.


The chargers are from Pier1.  I found the cute polar bears at one of my favorite stores, Pottery World.
I waited for them to go on sale before purchasing.  They also gave me a big discount for 1 eye missing.












I need to hot glue a button eye on him.......LOL


The swirl glasses are Mikasa and the snowflake flutes are Waterford.  Our friends have given us two each for the last two Christmas seasons.


I found the cute little polar bears at Big Lots.

 For added interest, I topped two of the candles with Christmas trees, which are hollow cones.

Adding a snowy wreath for the woodsy look.


I hope you are enjoying the holiday season.  Take care and stay warm and cozy.  Cheers!
I would love it, if you shared my posts.... Yes, this is me below.....

  1. What an adorable theme, Linda and I sure do love those polar bears! I wish that I could set up our tablescape,but it just will have to wait until a few days before Christmas. We don't have a separate dining room....ours in in our kitchen and I am setting up two tables and using our bar to seat 17 people. Can't have all that in the way, yet...LOL!
    Enjoy your dining with your guests....they will be thrilled!

  2. Beautiful table, Linda...you did a great job copying. I agree, those trees could be a problem being so close to chairs...at least in my house they would!
    The centerpiece is awesome...that faux fur runner is so pretty and the polar bears look right at home on it.
    Have a great weekend!
