I had purchased these plates off of Craiglist last year.
I love how they look like they are cross-stitched. And the deer in the center of the salad plate is...well..dear! I know I could have used them during the Christmas season, and they would have been perfect, but I saw them more as winter dishes.
They came as a set of four dinner and four salad plates.
I could have played off of the blue but I decided to use the light touches of green in the plates for some of the accessories, like the napkins and the green ball jars.
I had picked up the wooden coasters at World Market over the holidays.
The birch wrapped candles were an after Christmas clearance find.
And that sweet moose tooshy you see above?
My mother-in-law, Linda, saw it at Lowes and bought it for me for my birthday.
The cute yellow butterfly on his antler surely means Spring IS coming!
Speaking of birthday gifts and antlers, my dear friend Christine that blogs over at Rustic And Refined knew I had fallen in love with her use of antlers and sent me a beautiful basket filled with burlap, purple mesh and 4 antlers of my very own!
I scrunched up the burlap into a runner for the center of the table and also used some to wrap around a candle in the lantern for the centerpiece.
I then lovingly placed the antlers here and there around the lantern.
Now that I have set the table to say good-bye to winter, I can't wait to set the next tablescape, Hello Spring!!
