Her Majesty, The Ice Queen's Table

The Ice Queen has certainly been to visit
here, spreading her magic of cold.
Through her influence, temperatures have dropped
to zero.


Purple Chocolat Home has set a table for her
to try and appease her.


Everything is frosty whites and silver, coldly beautiful
just like Her Majesty.


Ice drops decorate the table, dripping from
branches at the table's center and at
the center of the plates too.


You can see the table reflects the frostiness
of the out of doors.


Only the best for Her Majesty's table.




A gossamer shimmer of silver organza underlies it all.




Sparkling snowflakes adorn the napkin holders.


Layer upon layer of snow and ice.


Truly majestic.


The silvered salad plates remind one of an
ice skating pond.



Floating atop the ice skating pond are
crystalledized
branches.



A crown to symbolize a table fit for Her
Royal Highness.






Three crown jeweled bottles to serve her from.




Such luxury is necessary for her table.


You can almost hear the ice crack and pop.




Yes, she truly did appear, as evidenced by her icy
crown jewels.

Maybe pleasing her will bring a spring thaw soon.

Napkin rings, silver salad bowls, chargers - Z Gallerie

I love this! I did an Ice princess table awhile back and it was so fun! Your Ice Queen table is truly majestic! Your centerpiece reminds me of a weeping willow tree that is drooping w/ice. I love it! Actually, I love it all!

Sarah said...

I'm certain this table will please the Ice Queen with each of its glistening details. Layer upon layer of snow and ice ~ yes, it is majestic, but also magical. You've created a magnificent wonderland fit for any Queen.
I'll be sharing a whimsical winter table later this evening. Can't begin to compare to this beauty. ;-)

Everything just shines on this table! Love your new silverware and all the silver and crystal. I love the drooping centerpieces that looks so like the limbs outside! I am sure the Ice Queen felt right at home. Joni

Entertaining Women said...

Fit for an ice queen or any queen! Is that a silver sugar bowl sitting in a footed crystal compote? Great idea! We're snowed in here...I can't get my car out of the garage, so Sweet Mister is taking me everywhere...I feel like a queen...or at least a princess...I'll be right over to sit at that table. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous design. Cherry Kay

Gypsy Heart said...

Stunning! I love everything about it, Jacqueline. If I lived closer I would try to just "borrow" those crown bottles & the ornament. :-)
You do such a beautiful job on any and all tablescapes!

Hope you're warm and safe ~ it's just miserable here.

Jack Frost has met his match with you. Your table is stunning. It is -7 degrees here now, and you made it come to life with your table. Thanks, now I am going to grab my book and curl up by the fire.

Send the ice queen to my house! She created one fabulous tablescape!

Truly gorgeous!

Lisa said...

Gorgeous! You really captured the theme with this one.

Marlis said...

She left her stamp here too! Below freezing.. can you communicate with her that we've had enough now?? LOL.. your table is absolutely exquisite! Your new flatware seems as if it has made itself at home in perfect harmony. The crystals and all the pieces do remind me of the ice queen. Stunning.

Joycee said...

Your going be mad...well, I hope not! Remember last week when my Aunt B. shared your hog burger in the local food column? Well, I wrote them a quick email to thank them for the mention of grannymountain and I told Jay she needed to go back and peruse the MANY recipes on your blog. For just a moment, long enough to type your name wrong...it's there in black and white in yesterday's column as Suzanne. Forgive my sad little senior moment, but read the glowing review of your blog! http://www.swtimes.com/potluck/article_b5c11838-2e37-11e0-beef-001cc4c002e0.html

OOOOOO Jacqueline, if this doesn't appease the ice queen, then nothing will. What a spectacular table! That flatware and those silver goblets are stunning. Love all of the bling you added to the table. You have a wonderful imagination, and it shows in everything you create. Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. laurie

Judy said...

That is absolutely gorgeous. Gorgeous isn't even a strong enough word for how beautiful everything is. I linked over from Laurie's party. I saw your "new" kitchen in your sidebar. I had to check it out when you said you put in a pizza oven. We just put in a pizza oven in our new outdoor kitchen. I'm so excited to know someone else who has one. I am now your latest follower. I would love if you would come and check out my blog and follow me back at www.diybydesign.blogspot.com. You can check out our pizza oven while you're there. Looking forward to checking out more of your blog.
