Brrrrrr...It's Chili Chilly!

As winter continues to blow it's fury






Tonight it is Chili Chilly at the table


As the ice dances on the branches...



Mr. Snowman is all bundled up for his ice boarding adventures.




While snowflakes continue to make their magic.


The pinecone glistens in the cold night light....




But the warmth from a candle makes it cozy for two.




While Mr. Me and I enjoy our warm bowl of Chili and Cornbread Muffin, I will give you time to enjoy the rest of my make believe winter wonderland.










































Be sure to stop by Susan's at BNOTP for Tablescape Thursday and at The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays for lots of inspiration!

What a fabulous winter table! Your photos and post have captured the cold, icy, winter-y feel of it while at the same time, making it seem cozy and inviting (course that yummy-looking chili helps too!) I like the icy branches down the table, the "house on the hill" and the little snowboarder. The snowflake stemware and your white soup tureens are lovely! How I wish I could pull up a chair and join you and Mr. Me for dinner on this frosty night!

It's beautiful!!! Even the candles and pine cones have a twinkly, frosty look about them. I love how the candlelight dances across the table, too.

Everything is beautiful. I love the house on the table and all the sparkle that surrounds it.

So many wonderful elements to catch the eyes of guests at your table. The snow bird brought a gentle smile. So pretty. I think that I'll go have a cup of chicken chili right now. Thank you for sharing your beautiful design and for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay

Hi Andrea...

Ohhh...what a beautiful winter's table! I just love that pretty ice crystal garland woven in and out of all the pretties. You did a spectacular job of creating the centerpiece...I could sit at your beautiful table all night long and just look at all the details! I also enjoyed your pretty place settings...love that charger plate! I think your white, blue and silver colors catch the ambiance of a chilly, icey night perfectly...and yet your table offers such a warm response! It's gorgeous and I sooo enjoyed it! Thank you for sharing it with us today!

I also wanted to come by to say thank you for adding Happy To Design to your list of blog follows. I have added your delightful blog as well! It's so nice to meet you Andrea!

Warmest winter wishes,

Your tabletop winter wonderland is so delightful! The little blue snowmen and the blue house in the snow -- pretty snowflake wine glasses -- What a perfect setting for a warming bowl of chili! Looks wonderful!
