Tablescape Thursday - Breakfast for Two

I have only one table, and it is a small one - only 36 inches. It seats 4 cozily and 2 comfortably. Not generally a problem, but limits the amount of dishes you can have on it. I decided to show off some of my snowmen. Love them, love them, love them. Since Key West hasn't even experience a frost, let alone a snow - it's a strange collection for here, but I do love them. I have been every inspired by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch ( and decided to do some table scape.

The dinner plate is Corelle and available at most Walmarts. The snowmen dishes were obtained from Byrons in Key West in their going out of business sale. The salt and pepper shaker were from a thrift shop. The crystal glasses from a yard sale; the mugs a gift. Flatware from Ross and made by Cambridge Silversmith Ltd. Very reasonable for a 20 piece box of flatware.

For those of you that know that I am a miniaturist - behind the tale are shelves holding about 17 room boxes, vignettes.

I am so ready for some snow- I guess there is no chance for you to have snow is there?
I am such a fan of a round table. I think it is cozy and fresh and invites conversation. YOur table is lovely.
Cute theme- and those mirror glasses gives an "icy" look.
Happy, happy tablescape!

Love snowmen too. Just pulled out my snowflakes both crystal & silver, my glass icicles and my snowmen. I'm up in Port Charlotte and while we do get frost a couple of times in Jan/Feb I much prefer my faux snow stuff!
