Nothing says a celebration like the metallic tones of silver and gold. And with New Year’s here this weekend, I’m passing on a little color inspiration to help spark your inner creativity thanks to the Perfect Palette. Keep in mind, when choosing flowers to go with this style of event, think soft and light such as white or ivory hydrangeas, ranunculus or even carnations. Incorporate additional elements such as feathers to add a subtle, unexpected texture to the mix.
And to all of the brides and their families celebrating this weekend, congratulations!
Who says arrangements have to have flowers? Although I love flowers, there is something unique and intriguing about these pine-cone-only arrangements found through the Hostess with the Mostess Blog. So feel free to dream beyond the norm and don’t be afraid to ask to see if I can do it.
It’s hard to believe that it is already here, but Christmas will soon be upon us! Between the weddings, trade shows and silk orders for the holidays, the time just seems to fly by.
And as a sure sign that the holidays are in full swing, wreathes can be found all around town. Unfortunately, wreathes usually do not receive the recognition they deserve. They can be more than just evergreen and ribbon; a good holiday wreath can include anything from the traditional berries and pine cones to just carnations or bells. And whether you decide to go with fresh or silk, round or oblong, it is sure to help add warmth and character to any room. And since I always love pictures for inspiration, I had to pass along a fun post that I found on Christmas wreathes via marthastewart.com.
Here’s to a Merry Christmas filled with lots of friends, family and joy!
Call me a romantic, but there is something downright charming about a beautiful Christmas wedding. Between the twinkling lights and fresh white snow, which you are guaranteed to have in South Dakota, everything seems to glitter a little more this time of year. The color options for holiday weddings are truly endless from silver, white and turquoise to black and golds, yet red still remains to be one of the most popular choices.
Another great thing about a Christmas affair, is you are able to incorporate unique elements special to this time of year. Consider incorporating Christmas ornaments into your centerpieces or decorated trees at the ceremony and reception. Ribbon is also a great element that seems to gain more of the recognition it deserves during the holidays.
I will be busy this weekend with a fabulous wedding and I hope to have some pictures of it up soon. Have a great weekend all!
