Tablescape Thursday - First Winter table

Hello Sweet Friends,

So how has your week been so far???
Good....I trust!!

Mine has been good.......altho I am still a bit achy I have
gotten quite a bit accomplished.  All my Christmas stuff
has been taken done and packed away,  and I am in the
process of redecorating for the rest of the Winter Season.

My color of choice is burgundy red with other dark colors
thrown in,  since Fall and Winter are the only times you want
to use dark colors in Florida,  cause when it is hot..... dark
colors only make it feel hotter!!  lol

I also use fruit and pinecones to decorate for the Winter
 months as well. So...........if my tablescape looks a lil
 Christmasy it really is a Winterscape for my home!!
  Altho,  you could use it as a Christmas one if
 you wanted!!  lol
I do try to tone the red down a bit....really!!  lol

See I used a tan tablecloth and red and tan plaid.

I did still use poinsettias because I consider them
a winter flower!!

Had some raffia leftover from some Christmas gifts
and thought it would look great with some pine cones.
And....Pine cones are wintery!!

Love how the raffia curls.

This is from the opposite end of the table.

A nice shot across the table.

Looking right into the burning candle and an overall shot
of the centerpiece.

Just for fun!!

Posterized affect!!  You know, my fav!!

This has a palette knife affect.

Another posterized shot!

This is a type of gradient affect in blue and green.
I was thinking that would be an interesting way
to come up with a fabric pattern.

This is also a gradient affect in yellow and brown.
I just loved it!!

Well,  Sweet Peas,
Hope you enjoyed my
  First Winter Tablescape,

So nice and cozy! With it being just me, my table is the same year around :o(

I always like your landscape shot from the edge of your table. It almost makes you feel the size of the dishes, ha!

Love ya!

Donnie said...

What a lovely color choice. You set a beautiful table.

Debbie said...

I sure hope poinsettias are wintery and not just Christmasy because I'm trying hard to keep mine alive!

Your wintery table is so pretty. I really like the effect that the raffia makes. I'm definitely going to try that look here.

Sharon Haynie said...

Great table, especially with all of the effects. I think poinsettias should be used for much longer than the month of December! Thanks for sharing!

Kathleen said...

Lovely, Nellie. Love the colors and the pine cones!

Nellie, this is the perfect cheery winter table. Love how you used that rafia and the pinecone on the plaid napkin! SO cute.

Happy Tablescape Thursday to you...

Hello Nellie,
Lovely tablescape - very bright and cheerful - terrific for these chilly, grey days! You've combined accessories beautifully,

Tricia said...

Love that plaid -- so cheery! The pinecones and raffia look great, too! Your blog's name always reminds me of a wildflower area near us called Miss Nellie's Pretty Place.

Sue said...

How have you been this week? We are a bit snowed under. Your table is lovely. Red is good for Valentine's Day too!

Beth said...

Nellie, This is a very pretty tablescape. I like the napkins and tablecloth, and what a pretty centerpiece! Your napkin rings with the pinecones look great.
Blessings, Beth

Love the curled raffia, especially the way you arranged it on the napkin with the pine cone! Nice winter setting!
