Winterland Snowflakes and Ice Birthday Tablescape
I don't know about you but I have been under the influence. Under the influence of Pinterest that is! I had become obsessive looking for the perfect holiday decor to use in my home for this holiday season. Every time I would pin an idea another would come along and just like that I was off in another direction ricocheting across the internet! I finally settled down a bit when I started looking in my own backyard at all of the inspiration that I had bookmarked over the past seven or eight years. The people and the blogs that had inspired me to blog, the posts that I had seen at Alma's Seasonal Sundays, Susan's Tablescape Thursdays, and Kathleen's Let's Dish parties. These are the people that inspired me along with their many followers that have shared their own posts through the years. One of my favorite inspirational tablescapes has been Lori's "Snowflakes and Ice" Tablescape from Dining Delight posted on January 14th in 2012. Lori shared this tablescape at Tablescape Thursday and Seasonal Sundays plus several other link party sites. The sparkle and shine of this beautiful table would brighten anybody's winter day. This is one of several winter tablescapes that Lori has created with snowflakes, glistening icy crystal like trees, sparkling deer, and delightful happy snowmen. Make sure to get over there to visit and check out her wonderful tablescapes listed on the sidebar by clicking HERE. I have been gathering snowmen and crystal trees at the thrift stores for nearly two years to use for icy sparkling winter tables this year and when my oldest son said he wanted a Winter Wonderland tablescape for his birthday (I think he wanted to try his new camera out) I knew this would be the table I would create.
