Hygge inspired Winter Table Decor

Here we are in the New Year!  A feeling of new, fresh, clean and promise.  I love to take down Christmas decor to have my house feel somehow bigger, cleaner, and a new canvas.  I am always so motivated and inspired come the New Year with so many ideas I want to try to apply that I am in full overload.  First off I wanted to try and share my winter table setting, after all we are in the depths of  winter.  Everything has felt cluttered the last few days with remnants of the past holiday that I wanted to purge; breath.  Hence my Hygge inspired table.  Something cozy (to me cozy is candles),  something comfortable (bringing outdoors inside has grounded me which makes me most comfortable),  feeling content (using what I have on hand and loving what I have).  So pull up a chair, pour your favorite beverage (maybe something warm), and lets gather around my Winter table.


Like I said I already owned everything I used for this piece.  So I hope I can inspire you to do the same.  As always I will find things that are similar to what I have (especially the recently purchased) but encourage you to find things you already own similar.  After a holiday of “more” and “want”, it feels good to love what I own.


White, the color of new, the color of snow, the color of clean.  I used silver place mats with white dinner plates to compliment my metal table all with a feeling of winter.  I used white napkin and galvanized napkin rings.  I feel this color scheme screams ice = winter.


I used one of my glass vases to place sprigs from a tree I have in my yard.  I also used my faux birch sticks that I bought for my Festive Porch decor, I love these sticks as they look so realistic but have the ease of being “fake”.  I tied a ribbon around my vase that I bought in stock as I love it so much!  I feel that it ties all my black and white stripes together.   On each side of my vase I placed candles of different sizes and shapes to each side running the runner.  The trick here is just to keep the candles in the same color family for our winter table; white, silver, black, metal, and glass.  My geometric candle holders are like seriously vintage, like late 1970’s.


My runner (which is actually two runners overlapped = great texture).  I actually made my own white and black striped runner last year.  My black runner can be found here.  On my buffet in the background I placed other glass vases/cloche with more nature inspired items.  Pinecones in one vase, twig and cork balls in the cloche.  I tied black and white striped twine around them to once again tie it all in.  In the middle of the glass displaying nature pieces I placed more nature pieces.  I used a wood apple (something similar here) with two green pear candles in front.  The green candles were the color pop I was looking for.



Happy Winter Solstice!  Okay I know that was actually a few weeks ago but I feel I can show it proper now that Christmas is over.  What does your table look like?  Do you celebrate winter, maybe coastal style?  Share some love and inspiration on how you decorate this time of year.

Cozy Winter Porch

Baby its cold outside!  Christmas is over, Valentines is over a month away.  How to decorate your porch and welcome your guests?  Well one thing is for sure, it is winter.  For me that is worth celebrating.  Snow is on the ground, snowman in the yard.  Why not do a winter porch?  Here is a unique, cozy porch worth warming up too.  Most of the items needed to style this porch I had already purchased or is a staple in our decor rotation.  So the pros of this winter porch being friendly on the budget which who doesn’t love this (especially after that budget bursting holiday; Christmas)!  Also, I love a refresh in decor, it feels clean and new.  Cons of this porch; NOTHING.

My white wreath I bought at Target a while back and have absolutely loved.  White can incorporate into all the holidays of the year somehow so it is a star in a lot of my ‘shows’.  I found a similar wreath here.  My black and white plaid scarf I have had for a few years and actually snagged a hole in it.  So I came up with the idea to use it as a house decor piece.  I found a similar one here, (that I am going to purchase for its replacement in my wardrobe).  It is all the feels of cozy on this porch, and pairs nicely with the wreath and rug.  All my other pieces I purchased for my Christmas porch, the black and white checkered rug, the faux potted tree, the garland, the lantern with candle, lastly the” believe” circle in faux wood which was a $1 section Target in store purchase.  Changing out a few pieces made this porch feel new and will be perfect until I can put up Valentines.


Happy snowman building, sleigh riding winter!!
