Winter has finally arrived here in South Florida. The cool weather inspired me to make a large pot of homemade vegetable beef soup for dinner. It was in the low 40's here early this morning which is a big change from the 70 & 80 degree temps we had yesterday. Hopefully the cooler temps will stick around for a couple of months. It's a refreshing change. My friends and family in North Carolina had a nice covering of snow this weekend. The Winter themed table coincides perfectly with the change of weather. It was nice to sit down for dinner tonight and enjoy the sparkle and cobalt blue while having a hot bowl of soup.
|The Set of three Illuminated Glistening Wax Trees by Valerie Parr Hill Collection from QVC are displayed on top of glass block. I have a white lights inside the block to add sparkle. The wax trees are currently available at a great clearance price. (Note: I added the Moravian stars to the top of the trees. They are candle holders and fit perfectly on the top.)|
|The snowflake napkin rings are from Hobby Lobby.|
|I found the cobalt antique compotes at a local show here in Pompano Beach a few years ago. I love cobalt glassware and when I spotted these I knew they would be going home with me.|
|The stack starts with a silver card stock snowflake that I found at Party City. The dinner and salad plates are Blue Bliss from Cracker Barrel. The compotes are antique glass.|
I love the way the setting sun reflects on the blue glass.
A nice hot bowl of homemade soup was perfect for this cool Florida evening.
