Simple Rustic Winter Tablescape

It’s official! Snowpocalypse 2016 has struck! And here in South Carolina, that means enough to make a footprint in the snow. Ha!

It’s the little things in life, right?

But this past weekend, it was enough for Olivia and Lola to get excited…and okay, honestly, Robert and I acted like little kids in it too. We built a 10 inch tall snowman and everything. (It looks like a lot of you guys have gotten your share of the fluffy stuff too.)

And since the roads were iced up for a couple days, I started getting a twinge of cabin fever.

Apparently, my cure was to play around with a winter tablescape on our kitchen table.

Once we put all of the Christmas decorations away a few weeks ago, the house felt sort of… blah. I hate that empty, dark feeling that creeps in mid-January once all of the holiday sparkle is gone.

So I snuck into our Christmas storage boxes and pulled out a few artificial snowy branches. If you eliminate the holiday red and throw in some grays, it suddenly becomes just winter decor, right?

It was so dark with the snow clouds outside, so the candles brought a warm coziness inside for us.

Last week, when I was wandering around the Michaels Christmas clearance aisle, I found these cable knit plates for 99 cents! I don’t think they’re Christmasy at all, do you?

I don’t like getting too crazy with colors when it comes to decorating for any season, and our table pretty much always has a burlap runner, cream candles, and white dinnerware along with our driftwood chargers I got at World Market last summer. I mean…don’t fix what ain’t broke.

Just change the florals with the seasons and voila! Easy tablescape.

Plus, sticking to neutrals saves a lot of money in the long run.

The snow and ice outside have now officially melted away, but I’m so glad we get to have this little bit of winter frost still in our kitchen every day.

Do you decorate your house for winter after Christmas too? Or do you just hold out until spring? The rest of our house isn’t looking quite as cozy as this space at the moment.

I currently still have a few master bedroom makeover projects happening behind the scenes, but they’re all in that not-quite-finished phase. #storyofmylife  We’re getting there though. And you guys should be seeing several updates by next week with (fingers crossed) the full room reveal next month.

And if you have cabin fever right now and are in the shopping mood, I’ve rounded up my table sources (and similar pieces) for y’all just in case you want them too. (affiliates)

  1. Hi Lauren
    I realize your winter tables cape is from a few years ago but do you remember where you bought your frosted pine needle decor?

  2. Love those plates, pretty sure they are long gone in the Northwest too. It’s sunny and 45 in Boise today. We haven’t had much snow this winter in the valley but the mountains are getting a ton so the ski resorts are loving it.

    1. I figured they’d be long gone by now, but just in case figured I’d throw the little tip out there. 🙂 I’m so jealous of everyone with snow! Maybe we’ll all get one last chance at it in Feb.

  3. Love, love, love your winter tablescape! I think every Michael’s store in the United States had these sweater plates on clearance except for the one in our area!? I love them, but can’t seem to find any…. I don’t do too much winter decor, but I do a few things so that it doesn’t look so “blah” and plain after the holidays. Thanks for sharing…

    1. Thanks, Lanita! The sweater plates I got were sort of hidden in the clearance spot on the checkout aisle. If I didn’t have to stand in a long line for the cash register, I probably would have missed them. I don’t do lots of winter decor either, but I totally agree. You need a little bit to fight off the “blahs”. 🙂
