Now, I’d like to share my simple and cozy winter tablescape:
Welcome to my kitchen…
Even though I’ve packed away most of my Christmas decor, I did leave out a few wintery accessories. In fact, just last week, I shared my winter white decorating ideas. Since then, I decided to add back a little more color.
Navy and Brown Plaid for Inspiration:
When decorating a table, I like to start with an inspiration piece…
For this simple and cozy winter tablescape, I began with my navy and brown plaid throw blanket. After all, what’s more cozy than a warm, fuzzy blanket on a winter evening? Sure, it’s probably a little less practical than a standard tablecloth. Then again, who says you can’t try different things on your table? Anything goes these days, right?
Winter Decorating with Pine Cones:
To highlight the brown in the tablecloth…or should I say “table-blanket“, I accessorized with pine cones…
First, I simply scattered them down the center of the table and then added one to each place setting. For a little more brown, I brought out my go-to brown rattan chargers. If you read my blog, you’ve seen them many times…And you also know that I like to decorate with pine cones.
Winter White and Navy Blue:
Classic colors for simple and cozy winter decorating…
Like I mentioned, I already had some winter white accessories on the table (a white pitcher and white candles and holders). From there, I added my white plates and layered in some navy napkins to coordinate with the plaid. Since the single pine cone on each setting felt a little plain, I added the faux berry stems. Originally, I bought these navy berry stems for my red and blue Christmas tree in the dining room so I’m glad I found an extra place to use them.
For my centerpiece, I cheated and reused the same white pitcher and greens that I’ve been using for my everyday table. Hey, if it works, it works. Flowers just didn’t feel right with this table setting. Instead, I just wanted to go with something kind of woodsy and casual to coordinate with the plaid.
From this angle, you can see the fleece underside of the blanket. I love the mixture of soft and rough textures on the table.
And I love any chance I get to decorate with navy blue!
To me, the combination of the white, brown and navy works for a January table.
Candlelight for a Simple and Cozy Winter Tablescape:
And we can’t forget some flickering candles on a cold winter night…
Not only do candles make the table feel cozy but everyone looks great in candlelight!
When I use candles on a table setting, I try to get unscented ones so they don’t overpower the food.
Thanks for stopping by to see how I decorated my simple and cozy winter tablescape. Hopefully, I gave you some ideas to use in your home.
