TABLESCAPE TUESDAY

Once again it is Tablescape Tuesday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Please stop by her blog for a list of all of those participating in showing their clever tablescapes!



I've set the table for a snack on a cold afternoon using my snowmen dishes from Debbie Mumm. I purchased them several years ago from Target.


I always giggle when I see snowmen (or snow women) with feet!!

For a snack today, we are having Snow on the Mountain
Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes and also Peppermint Sandwich Cookies.



Each snowman plate is different!



For a hot drink on a cold day, how about Hot Chocolate with a snowman 'Peep' marshmallow?



Thanks for stopping by, and please check out the other tablescapes.

That is a perfect table covering for this tablescape. The color looks dead-on and the cross-stitching is beautiful.
The cardinal on the snowman's shoulder is adorable.

Thank you so much for stopping by my place and asking about me...I have been a bit "under the weather"...these cold Colorado winters always play a number on my old bones!

Girl, I love your pretty Christmas table...and I have to tell you that I have a "thing" for snowmen or women...hehe!!! Those plates are just the cutest that I've ever seen...wherever did you find them? I couldn't help but notice how that beautiful red embroidered tablecloth set them off...it's gorgeous!!!

Hmmmm...let me see, do I want chocolate cheesecake or a peppermint sandwhich cookie...okay, okay, I'll just take both....hehe!!!

Love ya,
Chari
PS...do you have the recipe for the peppermint sandwhich cookies...they sound scrumptious!!!
