To The Slopes!

Winter has settled in here and the ski lodges have opened up.   

 Imagine a day spent out on the slopes, cross country skiing or even just playing in the snow.
Coming into a warm meal and a cozy table to dine it would make the day perfect!

 A Christmas gift from my hubby was a German Pyramid.  I've have wanted one for a long time and found this on one of our visits to Frankenmuth, MI at the Frankenmuth Clock shop.  It's definitely a spot to visit loaded with black forest cuckoo clocks (some extremely elaborate), grandfather clocks, nutcrackers, pyramids and so much more. 
 Each side has a different scene and  the center spins around.  I've included a video of it located further down in the post.

 If you aren't famliar with these the little bit of heat generated from the tealite candles causes the top part to start turning.

My vision for this tablescape was with an "alpine" kind of look.  
I used my galvanized tin chargers to separate the red found in the buffalo plaid dishes from the red placemats.  I chose the napkins to pull on the colors from the salad plate.  The napkin rings have an aged look like the accent on the flatware.

Placemats are from Juliska (found on one of their sales). 

 The little black table has been in this corner for the holidays and I chose to leave it here for now.  I brought out the lantern box I got from Pier 1 a couple of years ago.  I did a post last year showing it in more depth that you can see "here".

 I put the black and white dishes from Pier 1 back up and added the dishes with the pine cones that I've used a few times.  I wanted to depict a winter feel to the plate rack.

 I'm getting a new range in the kitchen next week and it will have a warming drawer so I rearranged some pots and pans and decided to bring out my larger pots and stage them on the etagere.
It's a more utilitarian look but it helped solve a storage issue for me.

 Time to dine!

 A quick video showing the pyramid in motion.

Thank you for visiting with me for my "To The Slopes" tablescape!

Dishing It & Digging It


Welcome to Home and Gardening With Liz. I have combined my previous blogs “Infuse With Liz” and “Sit With Me In My Garden” into this new blog. I love interior decorating and gardening. I enjoy redefining interior spaces by moving things around and reusing decorative items already found in the home. I also enjoy creating tablescapes and an occasional crafting project. I'm so pleased you've stopped by. I invite you to follow me and I do hope you will keep coming back! Liz
