Most of you know we don’t normally have snow in the South at Christmas. It can get frosty, but rarely it snows.
If you live in the South, you know it first-hand. You also know that at Christmas, not only do we usually have no snow, but many years it is hot. Yes, I said hot! Sometimes, we throw our doors wide open.
We imagine sledding, but that’s as far as it goes.
We set our table with winter themed place settings. Mugs are ready for hot chocolate to warm us.
We fluff our decorative sled with vines speckled with snow-like berries…snow-covered pine cones and pine boughs.
Candles resemble snowballs.
Sled ornaments are used as napkin holders…white napkins resemble narrow strips of snow for sledding.
Our merry plates are ready for Santa, come snow or heat wave.
Plates are stacked while tree lights glow.
While we know snow is only a dream, we hang on to hope when temperatures fall.
We decorate with Christmas plates and tins.
Tins with sledding themes continue the mood.
Tree on sled! 🙂
Another personal favorite…tartan!
We load holiday treats in snow-themed tins.
Decorations are in place throughout the house.
Stockings hang in anticipation. Santa, please bring some North Pole snow from your house to ours.
Soon we give up on snow possibilities for Christmas. While snow is real in our imaginations, the reality here is heat. High today is 65 degrees!
This is my final post before Christmas. I pray you have a Christmas that’s merry and blessed!
Is it snowing at your house? Will you have a white Christmas? (Remember the importance of The Perfect Package.)
