Coffee and Spice Color Inspiration for an Intimate Winter Wedding
For the wedding stationery
Set the rustic mood of the occasion, but with a contemporary flair. For your wedding invitations, for instance, choose a lovely mocha color printed with white text and a simple seasonal graphic. Continue this look in your ceremony programs, place cards, menu cards, and favor tags.
Speaking of cards, create a charming escort card display using miniature fir trees. Or hang the cards from a holly garland or tuck them into holiday wreaths mounted at the entryway.
For the florals
Play up the organic textures of winter with woodsy elements and evergreen foliage in the bouquets for both bride and bridesmaids. Consider balsa wood flowers, pods, ivy, eucalyptus, pine cones, berries, and dusty miller leaves.
Then, echo these in table centerpieces that have that “just gathered from the forest” look. For vases, you may use wooden logs or baskets, then surround these with antique candelabra as an elegant contrast.
And don’t forget the bride and groom chair signs that you can adorn with garlands of ivy or holly, and large ribbon bows.
For the treats, drinks and favors
Here is where you can really revel in the season’s sentimental favorites! In place of a traditional wedding cake, why not an array of bundt cakes? Complement these with holiday pies, cookies and puddings “just like grandma used to make.”
For your couple’s signature drink, treat everyone to mugs or mason jars of pumpkin spice latte, apple cider, or dark hot chocolate—all within the color scheme, too!
And to send everyone off with more of that wintertime cheer, prepare delightful gingerbread box favors filled with chocolate truffles or other confections.
How can you not fall in love with this color scheme that’s good enough to eat? Plus so heartwarming as well?
