Snowflakes and Starfish

Although I'm currently updating my dining room for V-day, I wanted to share this sign I made to go with my theme of snowflakes and starfish!

I happily left out some of my Christmas decor that was more "wintery" to create a winter tablescape and a few vingettes.

We visited Tybee Island in GA over New Year's and I snagged some pieces of palm trees laying on the ground that looked sort of like driftwood. (I did snag one tiny piece of driftwood that I have plans for!)

I broke in my brand new Silhouette from SANTA for this project! Easy Peasy!

I wanted to figure out how to stencil it on with paint so I could distress it a little, but I haven't gotten that far in figuring out how to use my Silhouette! Anyone know the best way to make a stencil with it?


I displayed it on the top of my hutch:

And here's how it matches the rest of my dining room decor!

Used the same centerpieces as my Christmas tablescape- just took out the ornaments and added the piece of fleece on top of the runner to make it a little "cozier!"

The dishes are my wedding china, along with new snowflake bowls from Target Christmas clearance ($4 for all 4, I think?), and the mugs are Walmart clearance- $2.25 for 12!!! I needed a big set of matching mugs over Christmas- found these just a little too late!

Used several of the same things I used for Christmas on my sideboard too. The "snow" is also an after Christmas clearance find, and I made the rosettes out of fleece to "warm" up the candles too.

I absolutely looooove the look of the snowflakes and starfish together!!
