Are you staying warm and cozy? Like a lot of the US, we’re bracing for Arctic blast of cold air and a wintry mix today. Perfect weather to stay indoors and enjoy some winter nesting!
I set a table to enjoy the glow of our Winter Nesting Tree. It’s decorated with sparkling snowflakes, icy branches and pine cones, nesting birds and glittery bird nests. You can see more of the ornaments and tree, HERE.
Cardinals and snowmen have gathered at the table for some winter nesting. . .
Cardinals are perched on glittery, snow-dusted nests. . .
And flew in to light on the tablecloth and napkins, found at HomeGoods during a flurry of shopping in December.
Snowman mugs are ready to be filled with hot cocoa to keep us warm against the winter’s chill.
They rest on top of Pfaltzgraff Chateau salad plates~ the embossed design and round center medallion reminiscent of snowflakes. . .
And are framed by Woodland Berry chargers.
Twig flatware and rattan chargers add a woodland note. . .
And snowy white goblets are a nod to wintry weather and snow in the forecast.
Plates on top of inverted bowls, provide pedestals for a snowman teapot and cookie jar at the table.
Epsom salt adds some snowy and winter details, accented with pine cones and sprigs of evergreens.
A pine cone garland provides a runner on the table. Sprigs of evergreen are tucked among the garland, with cardinal ornaments perched along the length.
I took these cardinal photos several years ago. Cardinals provide such a cheery pop of red in a snowy landscape!
Watching the birds flock to the feeders is one of my favorite winter activities.
We keep our feeders filled year ’round but are especially diligent in winter and when there’s snow on the ground.
