Winter Kitchen Inspiration: Seasonal Tablescapes

This week I finally got around to putting away my Christmas linens. Now I am trying to decorate our table for winter. The current scene outside our dining room is a blanket of winter white and pretty bare branches and I want a natural feel inside to match. Here are a few images I found inspiring. I’ll share my final centerpiece on instagram once it is put together next week!

Birch vase I love the juxtaposition of rustic birch with colorful flowers. This would be so cheery with red flowers for Valentine’s Day. (photo via Tory Burch)

Party pictures can be great inspiration. For a touch of green I love the idea of greenery in low rectangular boxes in the center of the table. (photo via March)
