Got Snow? Winter Snowman Tablescape

If you live in our Southern States you probably have not had much (if any) snow this year but if you live in the Northern States you may have already had enough snow for the whole winter even though there is better than two months of snowy weather to go yet.  We spend most of our evenings in the family room with my husband watching TV while I work on my blog and visit around to other blogs to see what they have been up to.  When I am not out visiting or working on my blog I am usually looking out the patio doors at whatever seasonal decor and plants I have on the patio.  But in the winter there is not much to see except snow,  and there is a lot of snow out there right now.  To make the view more interesting I moved my fairy garden tub by the window to keep it a little closer to the house so that I could see it and to keep it out of most of the high winds and maybe a little warmer.  After I took the China Doll tree out of the fairy garden tub in the fall (and brought it into the house for the winter) I placed a faux pine tree in the container and some ceramic seasonal decor.  As the blizzard from the night before last was piling up around the garden I could not resist adding a couple of Winter Fairies to the scene.  The next morning I could see the sun shining brilliantly on the fairy garden   This is what I saw.............
Got Snow?
The fairies appeared to be enjoying themselves playing in the snow with the snowman that I had placed in the garden with them.

 Do fairies get cabin fever?

 Do they worry if the roof will collapse under the snow load.

Do they contemplate nature and have lively discussions with snowmen?

On to the tablescape - A Winter Snowman Tablescape
Plum Creek Place - Snowmen Winter Tablescape
Dollar store snowflakes are scattered about the table with one placed on each plate.  Vintage snowmen have been gathered together on the table around a centerpiece of white twigs and blue glittered pinecones.  Thrift store napkins are placed in the white snowflake napkin rings that Marigene sent to me before Christmas.
The flatware came from Goodwill.
The plates are marked Life @ Home
 The cups are marked Crofton.
Vintage snowmen were all thrifted except one that I bought on Ebay.
 Clear Dollar Store snowflakes are placed around the centerpiece.

The centerpiece was placed into a frosted snowflake container that came from HomeGoods.
White twigs and blue glittered pinecones were bought at Marc's at 99 cents a bunch.
 One snowman ornament bought at Marc's (two for 50 cents)was set into the arrangement.
