Everyday Tables

January is one of those months in Houston when the weather is unpredictable. One day it might be 70, another it’s barely above freezing. Sometimes there’s a hint that it will snow. Generally, that doesn’t happen, but that’s no reason not to create a winter wonderland!

From a poinsettia woods comes a snowman warning an oncoming truck of slippery cabled roads ahead. Oh, is that the happy sound of voices singing HiHo, HiHo warming the frigid air?

More snowmen smile and say hello from snowy white plates made cheery by bright red napkins held in place by birch tree napkin rings.

No, snow is not likely, but with a little imagination we can always create a bit of winter’s magic.

To top it all off, there’s nothing better than enjoying bowls of hot wintery soup. If there are any leftovers, should they be shared with the snowmen?

  1. Linda,
    I love your creativity!
    Thanks for sharing.


    1. Thank you. Creativity comes hard these days.

  2. Our Birmingham weather is similar to yours in Houston, except we’ve had mostly very cold temps the past few weeks and I’ve been basically hibernating at home with cheery snowman decor too! Love the poinsettias paired with your cute snowmen on the cozy cable stitch table runner!

    1. I seem to be hibernating at home no matter the weather!

  3. I love a snowman or snowflake theme for the month of January! Fun tablescape and soup served up in January is always welcomed!

    1. January is very unpredictable when it comes to weather.

  4. Linda, the snowmen plates are too cute with the poinsettia forest. The soup looks amazing!

    1. Thanks, Pam. These days soups and stews are often on the table.

You make my day with your comments
