Winter sure can take it’s toll on us and one of the best ways to beat the winter blues…

…is to pull up a chair and enjoy some time at the table.

We live in a time of grab and go…
Beating Winter Blues0111
…but this weather has made us all pause and sit a spell.

Sitting at the table provides an opportunity…

…not only for our bellies to be nourished…
Beating Winter Blues0106
…but our souls as well.

While we may not like to slow down…

…with this weather we have little choice.

This table is filled with some of my most favorite dishes! Lots of blue – of course!

Alas, the lattice cake plates are unmarked. A HomeGoods find awhile back.

The napkins are from The French Laundry and the place mats a super bargain at the West Elm Outlet Beating Winter Blues0119

No promotional consideration was received from any of these companies but I know that my readers like to know where things are from.

Enjoying the fellowship of others around a table is the best way to beat the winter blues!

Your table is certain to beat the winter blues. The ceramics and linens are all so beautiful. I'm envious of those blue chargers. You definitely should use them more!

Martha said...

Like your blue tables cape

Kathleen said...

Beautiful! Those glasses are amazing! Glad you like the bowls, they really hold a lot!
I am seriously sick of the snow, I can take the cold, but enough with the snow and the ice coming tonight. I worry about all those who have to be out on the roads, it is treacherous. This was an extremely heavy snow, we were out with the roof rake getting it off. With the ice storm coming, and the trees so heavy I hope we don't lose power. Stay warm!

Your winter blues table is cozy and warm, especially with the brown table and pine cones. Love the lattice plates, really all of your plates and the frosty blue drinking glass. Hope you don't get hit by the big storm..or have you already? Hugs and stay warm.

I understand you guys are going to get hit with even MORE winter blues over the weekend. I'm so sorry. I just know this winter has got to be taking its toll on your nerves. We've only had these snowy, icy conditions around for 4 days and I'm about to got bananas already!!!

You've done just the right thing to keep your sanity intact. Creating a beautiful tablescape like this to admire and enjoy is the perfect solution. The blue & white is both calming and energizing all at once. Just what you need on days when you're snowed in!

I'll be praying for you guys! Please stay safe!!!

This table makes winter blues seem bright and cheerful. I love your pretty stack of dishes with so much texture and the snowflake is the perfect crowning touch.
We are headed for a week of snow - drat - but we need the snowpack in the mountains for the water in the summer so grin and bear it!

Miss Jane said...

Your table is lovely, the blue is beautiful and serene. The pinecones add the perfect touch of texture.
