Memorable Christmas Wedding Table

the wedding bells stop ringing in the winter?
Let the cold ice and snow outside serve
as the perfect elements for planning an
exciting winter holiday or Christmas wedding.
Find inventive wedding favors, gifts, and
decorating ideas that blend a beautiful
combination of color, texture, sound, and
even taste to create a memorable celebration.
A wedding at this time of the year always
brings a special reason to celebrate and
enjoy your special day together with family
Selecting Wedding Colors with A Traditional
Twist on Style
Since all the excitement happens at the table,
let your wedding feast be an epicurean celebration
surrounded by succulent turkey, English bread
pudding, and an array of tantalizing delights
decorated with sparkling sugar pearls and
silver dragees. Take a cue from Santa and
provide a warm and generous feeling by using
colorful table decorations with a jovial mood
such as crystal tableware, beaded candle votives,
ring holders with faux pearl accents.
For favors that double up as decorations,
present bags of delicious chocolates wrapped
in colorful favor
Alternative Color Ideas beyond
Red and Green for a Holiday Bridal Party
While red and green may be typical Christmas
decoration colors, be creative and try using non-traditional
colors such as aqua and chocolate brown,
navy blue and silver, ivory and gold, or
lavender and aqua. If tradition is still
your calling, select a creative hue such
as light metallic red and apple green for a more modern decorating approach. Use
these colors not only as part of the table
décor, but coordinate them with items such as place cards and table menus.
Easy Bridal Party Gifts and Favors for Celebrating
Searching for unique gifts and favors
for the holidays need not be complicated.
As an example, find a frame and bring
it to life by placing a memorable photo
inside the frame with a personal greeting.
This great gift idea is ideal for the
bridesmaid who has it all. For a nice
hostess gift for the mother of the bride,
give her handmade seashell
trays that make great decorative pieces
for the home. Lastly, give colorful red
and green chocolate coins wrapped in organza
or tulle. Put them in coffee mugs filled
with cocoa or tea packets and display
them on your holiday wedding table, so
guests can take them home to enjoy.
Creating your very own Wedding Favor
A memorable winter wedding would not
be complete without a homemade Christmas
holiday favor tree. Find a miniature
tree and personalize it with your own
ornaments that serve as favors. Decorate
it with items ranging from simple baubles
to whimsical wooden reindeers. Hang
them on the tree, each displayed with
a pretty favor tag. For an edible tree
favor that won’t break the bank,
yet still look stylish, bake cookies
in the shape of snowmen and decorate
them with icing, which is personalized
with the name of the bride and groom.
You may either hang these cookies directly
on the tree or present them in organza
favor bags with a Christmas motif
such as ivy. Save time yet have fun
by having your bridesmaids assist with
this activity. When looking to cut down
on wedding flower costs, let these miniature
Christmas trees serve double duty as
your table centerpieces. Add a little
humor to these trees by displaying miniature
wrapped gift boxes filled with chocolates,
peppermint swirls, or taffy - tied with
pretty ribbons and tiny bells, which
can also serve as favors to take home.
Scatter bits of artificial snowflakes
and clear crystal candies to create
a captivating look! Do remember that
the ideas presented here can also be
applied towards a New Year's Wedding.
