Perhaps you have snow at your house right now. We have predictions of a warm winter in the south, so there’s little chance of white stuff for us.
We moved into our Georgia home and found a brand new sled in the attic. We never had snow deep enough to use it. And, then when we moved, we left it for the next family to use…maybe.
You must know I’ve thought of a bazillion uses for a sled when decorating for Christmas. Or, any time of year, really. Imagine any southern porch with a bright red sled hanging on the wall.
Not exactly fitting for the area, but how neat!
This set of plates was a Tuesday Morning Christmas clearance find – 4 for $5. I know.
Who could pass that up, right? And SLIDERS written on each plate suggests what to serve for dinner. Do you make sliders like we see at restaurants?
I bought this sled last year (again, on after Christmas clearance at TM – or TJ Maxx). In order for a flyer to fly, it needs to be elevated, right?
Naturally, I drug out the gloves, mittens, scarves, and caps necessary for sledding.
Cups for hot chocolate (or coffee!) hold an extra pair of gloves.
Don’t forget an extra pair of dry gloves…to keep your hands warm…
Flatware inside gloves give a utilitarian decoration.
Yellow around cloth napkin edges remind us…
Don’t eat yellow snow!
Snowflakes are falling here and there.
Snowball candles remind us of childhood snowball fights.
Ear muffs on candlesticks.
And a head band or two.
Scarves around everything – chair backs…
for a cloth on the table (topped by a snow runner, of course)…
even for punch bowls, too!
Charcoal stems from Dollar Tree.
DIY burlap chargers give a base to black (Dollar Tree), white (Mikasa™ Antique White), then green Sliders (C. R. Gibson™) plates. (Mugs are also Mikasa™ Antique White.)
It looks like we’re prepared for a fun day in the snow.
All we need is a good dose of snow…and YOU! 🙂
