Winter Display in a Tray


I have created a display in a tray for three of the four seasons using the same round woven tray I got last year at Home Sense. I couldn't leave winter out of the fun so here's a look at what I created for this wonderful season.




It all started with two of these beautiful ceramic white moose that I received as a Christmas gift from my son and daughter-in-law.

I tried to design a snowy forest-like setting around them with birch logs as risers and accents.



Dishes always play an important role in any of my displays and these white mugs fit right in.

An acrylic snowflake was placed inside.

Of course, our love of skiing should also be represented.

The cute trees in the background were a Christmas gift from Mr. Delight.


White napkins with snowflake napkin rings were placed in the front of a birch log on the tray.

Square white bowls hold three little faux snowballs.

The winter scene on the tray inside...

...looks even more wintery against the snow covered yard outside.

It's such a beautiful time of year!

 I had so much fun creating this...

Nature never fails to inspire.




 I love walking along this wooded area at the end of our street especially after a fresh snowfall.

I've seen deer there but never a moose.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this season's
display in a tray.

What a great display in the tray! Love the white moose and the mix with the dishes, pine branches and the skiis! I've only seen a moose once and it was in the water. Winter can definitely be petty!

Your display is absolutely beautiful! Just the thing for the after-Christmas blahs--seasonal but not at all dated. Love it!

Thanks so much for sharing it at Grace at Home. I'm featuring you this week!

Hi Lori,

I saw these delightful moose at Pieced Pastimes and just had to come see more. Being Canadian as well, I have a special affinity for this beautiful animal and I love the gorgeous centrepiece you have created around them. Just fabulous!

Simply perfect with the snowy scene outside! Looks a lot like what we have going on right now here in UT. I love the display you put together! Hopped over from the dedicated house. I co-host a link party, Share Your Cup Thursday. It's about sharing the things that make you happy. I'd love if you shared some time!
hugs,
Jann

Visiting from Dedicated House, and this is beautiful, Lori. It's hard to pick a favorite among all the great things you've added, but I really love those mini skis.

Lori, I have a real thing for white ceramic figurines and your Moose are adorable! Such a pretty display you've arranged around them. Someone else would just plonk them on a table and be done with it. Not you! Thanks for sharing at Five Star Frou-Frou. Love, Mimi xxx
