Today, I’m setting a winter table with my favorite, vintage blue bottles, and some backyard fresh-cut greenery!
It’s snowing outside, chicken noodle soup is on the stove, and the fire is going strong in the pellet stove. It’s a cozy day to stay home and dabble and decorate with Ella, our Bernese Mountain Dog.
Soft blue vintage bottles always grab my heart and I’ve been collecting them for a number of years now. Have you ever noticed my blog logo before?
Here I gathered a few on our vintage mantel before setting a winter table, along with some backyard greenery branches.
Thrift Store Pearls
I found a couple of mason jars full of costume jewelry while out “Thrifting with the Gals“, and inside were half a dozen or so pearl necklaces.
I thought the pearls would be so fun to decorate with over the holiday season.
I love the pearl necklaces hanging around the neck of the blue vintage bottles on our dining room mantel.
They add that formal charm to a somewhat rustic look…
Setting a Winter Table
I’m going for very simple here today!
Thanksgiving is coming and we will be heading to our home in Coastal Maine in just a few days’ time.
We will be dining out this year! Do you ever dine out for Thanksgiving?
I found this old ceramic swan at Vermont Vintage Market Days a couple of years back. Isn’t she pretty??
Funny, I only ever seem to pull it out in the winter months.
And it’s so cute for setting a table for winter.

I grabbed a few thrifted white plates, Johnson and Johnson’s, Autumn’s Delight patterned bowls, and a few wooden chargers that I had on hand for the table settings.
Cutlery Couture Silverware Pouches
Aren’t these silverware pouches just fabulous?
They come in all different designs too!
On today’s winter table they are home to my mother’s sterling silverware collection.

A Book from Molly | Setting a Winter Table
My friend Molly from Molly in Maine sent me this absolutely adorable vintage book, The Winter Kitchen by Louise Andrews.
It reads as a wonderful conversation, and I know you will just adore it too.
Sitting at the end of our winter table here today, it just feels so welcoming and cozy next to a couple of candles.

Everything looks so beautiful, Ann! I love the necklaces draped around the bottles. What a clever idea! Also glad you used the book I sent you. The colors of the cover reminded me of you!
Thank you so much Molly😉

I love your vintage bottles Ann and especially with the necklaces draped around them. And the greenery is a beautiful touch. How sweet of Molly to send you that sweet book.
Thank you so much Kim😃😃
Love the swan and the pearls are fun. We are possibly the only people who are not fond of Thanksgiving. We eat very little meat and do not enjoy that particular meal tradition..although when the kids were home I did cook every year. Now we start the Christmas decor on November 1 and on Thanksgiving we eat something festive that we prefer. For many years we were in Palm Springs, Ca. from November until March and often ate out. My favorite was a Mexican buffet. You find such cute things thrifting. I have not thrifted before but shall have to try it out.
We aren’t very traditional either. I love change and eating out on Thanksgiving. Whatever makes you happy I say. Thank you so much for following along❤️❤️❤️
