December events can showcase much more than holly and mistletoe, check out these top trends!
1. Step outside of the winter flower box - instead of Amaryllis and red blooms try full white hydrangea or lovely ranunculus. Using a winter white color palate with your floral décor will create a timeless look of sophistication. The full blooms of a white hydrangea can create stunning elegance for any centerpiece. Ranunculus offers a majestic alternative to the use of roses in any bouquet.
2. Warm drinks for cocktails - try some Wassail, this warm winter drink tastes yummy and smells delicious!
1 gallon apple cider
27 whole cloves
8 cinnamon sticks
1 can (6 ounce) frozen orange juice concentrate
Mix all ingredients in a large Crockpot and simmer. Serve hot.
3. Play up the winter season through your cake - add some sparkle or silver dusting. Your dress and accessories aren’t the only places to add some bling! Try having your cake accented with eatable silver or sparkle dust. This is a great subtle addition for this traditional treat.
4. Embrace the season while you embrace on your honeymoon – instead of Jamaica try a log cabin in a winter wonderland. Warm destinations can be a great change from cooler weather, but the coziness of a ski-lodge or cabin can be just as romantic. Check out the following locations:
The Broadmoor of Colorado Springs: http://www.broadmoor.com/ This luxurious resort offers picturesque views of mountains and a quaint little resort village perfect for shopping.
Whistler Blackcomb- http://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/index.htm Not only the site of the last winter Olympics, but also a ski playground perfect for an active honeymoon.
5. Add winter to your dress - add a bolero or stole. Embrace the cold weather and winter style, add a fabulous bolero or stole to your wedding gown for an added accessory that looks gorgeous in pictures.
