I’ve been doing a little winter nesting this month and set a cozy table for two by our Winter Nesting Tree.
Our winter nesting tree was inspired by our recent snowfall and an excuse to extend the *twinkle* season! I always feel a little blue after the tree comes down and the glow of the Christmas lights are gone.
I decided to decorate the tree to enjoy for the month of January with sparkling snowflakes, icy branches and pine cones, nesting birds and glittery bird nests. You can see more of the ornaments and the tree, HERE.
Snow bird salad plates are layered on winter white plates and pewter-finish silver chargers, set at a table set by the glow of the tree.
A plaid throw provides a cozy tablecloth for a cold winter day. . .
Hammered flatware adds a faceted soft shimmer. . .
Birds are nesting in bowls with sprigs of greenery and a snowy layer of epsom salts.
A bird-topped tiered server, holds an assortment of snowy pine cones, snowflake ornaments, mercury glass votives and trees, for a centerpiece with some sparkle and shimmer.
A little sparkle and shine is a welcome addition for a gray and dreary January day!
I added an additional sprinkle of epsom salts in the tray of the centerpiece and in the base of the votive holders. I was looking for regular epsom salts but found a bag of Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt Soaking Solution at my grocery store. Dr. Teal’s came in fragrances, Eucalyptus-Spearmint and Lavender. I picked up the Eucalyptus-Spearmint which added some unexpected and welcome aromatherapy to help beat the winter blues too!
