Winter Wonderland Wedding Bouquet

As long as we're planning a Winter wedding and I have given you ideas for a festive background for your wedding line and other decorating ideas (in previous posts), here is a beautiful wedding bouquet perfect for a Winter wonderland!

Perfect creamy colored peonies, ranunculus roses,and soft glitter edged white hydrangea form this holiday wedding bouquet. Some vintage sheets of music have been fashioned into cones and each music cone has a glittered pine cone tucked inside it. Soft feathers with mini silver bells are attached to the feathers, and beautiful wire edged ribbon printed with music and cherubs complete this beautiful wedding bouquet.

Sure to compliment your wedding dress with its soft winter look! Faux flowers have been used so you can use it later as home decor and a special memento of your holiday wedding!

Soft glitter and gold

There are so many decorating possibilities when it comes to having a Christmas or New Years wedding! You can use the same ideas for party decor! Found a blog I really like over at The Wedding Decorator Blog! Laura shared these photos with me that she got from a blog called City Sage.

Don't they inspire you to incorporate some soft glitter and gold into your wedding decor for your wedding luncheon, or wedding reception? Whether hanging gold or glittering white stars from the ceiling or displaying ornaments creatively strewn down a staircase (that will be used only for decoration of course)your end result will be nothing short of breathtaking! Add some bunches of white roses tied with wired ribbon that has a music and cherub print theme to your staircase for added wow appeal!

Shoes filled with some ornaments and trinkets will delight those who see your beautiful decor! You could use the shoe idea for table centerpieces and sprinkle small gold and silver star confetti on the tables. Display a decorated shoe such as the ones in the photos up off the table on a glossy white gift box tied with a long wired gold ribbon. Attach white boas to the edge of a simple white table cloth for added elegance!

Rent a white or black sleigh to put your wedding gifts in. Decorate the front with a beautiful Christmas wreath and once again put Christmas baubles at various places on the sleigh.

Glass jars filled with a variety of Christmas candies and a large gingerbread house could be a focal point for any photos you might like to display.

Use the Christmas tree background I described in an earlier post and let your imagination go as you create your own Winter wedding wonderland!

Winter Wonderland Backdrop for Christmas or New Year's Wedding

Anticipating a wedding at Christmas time or New Year's? Here are a few suggestions for making your wedding day "Merry and Bright"! Display a row of pre lit Christmas trees for your wedding line to stand in front of.

You could have a musical theme and wind ribbon(designed with musical notes on it) around the branches or tie bows printed with musical notes on the branches. Spray large pine cones with glue and sprinkle with "Diamond Dust" glitter. Hang them on the branches.

Be creative and use whatever color ribbon you like. You can add partridges, musical instruments whatever your heart desires to put on the trees. If you prefer, just leave each tree undecorated except for the lights.

This creates a winter wonderland and makes a beautiful backdrop for your wedding or reception!

Simply Beautiful Wedding Favors Tell Guests You Care!

You can get very creative with your wedding favors these days! Take a small simple gift sack the color of your wedding. Fill it with individually wrapped truffles, pillow peppermints, or some other treat of your choice. Fold the top of the sack over at the top and punch a hole in it. Take a contrasting colored mini parasol and stick it through the top of the sack. Finish it off with gorgeous ribbon and there you have a nice thank you gift for guests or would also come in handy to give your guests at a bridal shower.
