Snowflakes

A few years ago, I found these red and white snowflake dishes at the dollar store and picked up two as everyday dinner dishes to use during the holiday season.

While doing my Christmas food shopping at Kroger the other day, I came across these bowls {$1.00 each}.

While not a perfect match {and no dinner plates to be found that matched}, I thought they would work well with the dishes I already had.  I think they do!

I also found these drinking glasses with snowflakes going all around and picked up two of them {2 for $3.00}.

And I couldn’t resist these handled glasses with their Christmas message and images {also 2 for $3.00}.  Having just bought eggnog, I could see it being served up in these.

The placemats are those thick solid ones that I got a year or so ago.  I just found them in the attic the other day, still in their wrapper, and set them up on the table.  They are from either Tuesday Morning or Home Goods and I probably bought them at after Christmas clearance.

One place setting totals $3.50!  Can’t go wrong at that price!

Merry Christmas!

I love those snowflake dishes and glasses! That would've gone well in my kitchen this year since I had a snowflake runner on the table. I ended up using some older "ski" theme dishes that worked fine though. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Looks fabulous! I love those handled glasses. More eggnog, please.
Have a happy and blessed new year.
Hugs,
Patti
