Winter Warmth Table

We woke up to snow yesterday!  
Not really that unusual when you consider we live in Colorado but, 
last week the temps were near the 70s!
So, today is cold and, I decided to set a table to convey some warmth.
http://www.kathewithane.com
I started with a wool red and black checked stadium blanket as the tablecloth.

Next came a burlap placemat.

I purchased the dishes some time ago online from Boscovs. 
They were clearanced at some ridiculous low price for the 8 piece set.  
The pinecone motif became my theme for the table.

My friend Cuisine Kathleen has the same set of flatware from World Market.
Mine were a stocking stuffer from Santa.

As were the embroidered napkins.

The goblets are one of my very favorite thrift store finds! 
I got 6 of them for $3.00. They are etched with pinecones and pine needles.

For the centerpiece, I used another thrift store find. 
A worn wooden basket with handpainted pinecones and greens.
I loaded it with some pinecones from Mr. B's parents yard,
as well as a few red pinecones I had in my craft stash and added a tall candle for height.

So pretty with the goblets don't you think? Rustic and elegant on the same table.

On each side of the wooden basket are birch votive holders.
These are very special to me.
My oldest son made these, and many more, 
for the tables at his and his beautiful bride's wedding reception. 
They very sweetly sent me some to use on my tables.

More pinecones were used to hold name cards. 
I left them blank so that I can add your name should you decide to join us for dinner.

Supper will be warm and hearty beef stew, rustic homemade bread, salad and bread pudding topped with cream for dessert.
And let's not forget,

  9. Crazy weather all around. Ours has gone from cold to 80 to cold and back again. For your snowy moment, it looks like you've captured the right spirit for your table.

  10. Yeah just what is with those 70's in January? We had some too. And then snow flurries a few days later. I love the lodge look on your table. Great dishes and boy do I love love those glasses. I am still using pinecones around here. It's just too early to think spring! xo marlis

  11. That WAS incredibly sweet and thoughtful of your son and daughter-in-law to gift you with those neat votive holders! Your son did a good job on them! This table DOES convey warmth, Kathe! Nothing says warmth like that cool black & red flannel!!! We have experienced weather conditions like you: in the 70s on Monday, in the 20s with ice, snow and blustery winds today. Today's weather would certainly warrant a warm, welcoming table like this one!!! Have a great weekend! I don't know if you're planning to watch the Super Bowl, but if you do...enjoy!!!

  12. Oh, Kathe, I always fall for anything with pine cones, including the real thing!!! Your table is wonderful and I would love to join you at it, so add my name to that place card. Your son is very talented and clever too. Your buffalo check blanket is a great first layer and the flatware is on my wanted list. I've seen it around on all the "best" tables!! Linda

  13. You always have the prettiest table settings. I love the pine cone theme, and you found some great thrift finds, love those glasses. It will only be 11 degrees here tomorrow, and this would be a perfect setting for our area. I wanted to also say thank you for offering you condolences on the passing of our beloved Bo! I hope you won't have to go through this with Max anytime soon.
