After being out in the cold all day returning to an inviting table and warm meal can be a reward!
First let's imagine you've had an active outdoor day snowshoeing, cross country skiing or maybe a heavy day running from store to store shopping!
Upon returning home you are pleased that you had already set the table and started a meal in the crock pot earlier that day. You light the lantern and cozy things up.
(I used a sticky wax to stand the candles upright on their own)
The lantern reflects remnants of the outdoors- candles that look like birch trees with the delicious smell of pine cones and cedar from some pot pourri I had on hand.
The dinner prepared in the crock pot will replace the lantern along with some hearty biscuits and a dessert to follow.
Warm earthy tones to reflect the outdoor northwood spirit!
Miniature antlers reminding you of the deer that scamper through the woods around here.
The bottom layer tablecloth added warmth but needed some separation of pattern so I chose the snowy white woven tablecloth.
Time for a cozy gathering and some reflection of the day's events.
I will be joining
