Snowy Night Dinner

We woke up to -44 this morning.  I guess it's something that we all have to learn how to live with, but the thought of the outside temperature being 80 degrees colder than the inside of my fridge is frightening.  We stay inside on days like this, hope everyone is safe and warm, and dream up tablescapes to while away the time.

Cedar log centerpiece made from a dead cedar tree in Kimberly's back yard by her husband, Kim.
Botanical and earthy, we loved putting this together!

This is one of the coolest table runners we've seen in a while -- a long runner down the center and then the perfect sized runner for placement across the middle.  The wood of the table felt right with the woodsy feel of this table.

That's right!  Kimberly also got the blingy over the top placemats in green! 

We added a gold lame napkin on the inside for texture and drama.

Although we used these napkins for Christmas, they are season-less and work for many occasions.

One of the few photos (for some reason) that shows the color of the bowls in perfect harmony with the chargers.  Other photos are picking up too much of the gold and they look too green.

These brass napkin rings are older than the hills, but they really work with the brassy gold in the plates and bowls.

And yes, it won't be long until the dining room is painted a beautiful honey beige.  You can see that Kim has started trimming already, and we had to work around him and his big ladder all afternoon.
