This holiday idea is perfect for a Blue & White Winter Wonderland Tablescape. Get the details on how to create this blue and white theme.
Blue & White Winter Wonderland Tablescape
Since I love to put together tablescapes, I wanted to put one in memory of my Mom and Grandma.
Every Christmas and Thanksgiving, this blue & white dinnerware was used. It was still intact moving from Ohio to Michigan, except for the duck glasses.
I was able to find three of them. And maybe to you, it seems silly why I am putting so much emphasis on these plates, but they hold fond memories for me.
When I first started to put together my Winter Wonderland idea, I knew I had to use the blue & white set. Not only do they fit perfectly with this theme, but the design on the plates matches with the idea of snow falling around the houses.
As I lay down my Grandma’s beautiful white linen tablecloth across the table, I could hear her talking about the grandkids spilling Red Tahitian Treat punch on her table.
I decided to add a winter theme wrapping paper as the runner.
Using wrapping paper to match the theme you are going for will always give it an extra pop!
Next, I started to set the table. I first laid out the six silver chargers.
Followed by those blue & white dinner plates, set the salad plates on top.
Since I have the matching tea-cup sets, these were also included in this tablescape design.
I added the three remaining duck glasses for old time’s sake.
I also added my Godinger Dublin Crystal Glasses. Crystal Glasses are fitting and necessary to give your winter wonderland idea an extra dazzle.
I placed the silverware by each table setting, followed by my quick DIY for the cloth napkins.
Here’s how I did that:
- Six Blue or White Cloth Napkins
- A spool of Christmas ribbon (I am using a silver design)
- A pack of white/glitter butterfly ornaments
Take a piece of ribbon, and measure enough to go around the napkin.
Repeat this step for all of the napkins.
After cutting each piece of ribbon, place it around the napkin.
Then clip the ends together with a white butterfly ornament.
This a simple DIY idea to turn your napkins from cocoons to butterflies.
After placing the napkins at each place setting, it was time to finish this design.
To hang each snowflake from the ceiling, you will need a ribbon or string. Take a piece of ribbon and tie it to the end of each snowflake ornament.
Take the loose end, put a piece of tape on it, and stick it to the ceiling.
Keep repeating this process until you have enough snowflakes to give it the “WOW” factor.
I also hung my snowflakes at different lengths and staggered the varieties. Because we all know that no two snowflakes are alike.
Finally, I worked on the center of the table. I laid down a white/glitter Christmas garland.
I added two white/glitter Christmas Trees and Reindeer Christmas Tree toppers.
I like to take items that are supposed to be for another idea and use them how I see fit!
I think it works beautifully in this design.
I added a few white Christmas cones, which were originally paper cones.
This is another quick DIY idea: I took paper Christmas cones and spray-painted each one white. Mini silver/glitter LED candles were placed throughout the center of the table.
Towards the end of the table, I added a “Let It Snow” sign and White Trees Strala LED Decoration Lightning sets.
My kids loved the transformation of our home into a Winter Wonderland.
Maybe it’s just a design, the memories, or the Christmas spirit, but this Blue & White Winter Wonderland transformation makes me feel like I am in a winter wonderland.
These Winter Snowflake Cupcakes would go great with this theme.
So, let’s talk about the supplies I used. I was pleasantly surprised Big Lots had most of the items I needed.
- Six Silver Chargers (already had, but Big Lots carries these)
- Six Blue & White Dinner & Salad Plates (my Grandmother’s set)

- Three Duck Glasses (my Grandmother’s set)
- Silverware (already had, but you can buy it at Big Lots)

If you are inspired by this design, it can be duplicated.
You will need to pick up a set of plates (or you may have your own), and everything else can be found at your local Big Lots store.
