Icy Winter Wonderland Wedding

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? I am. In fact I HAVE been for more years then I can remember! In my defense though, I do live in Florida, and it’s going to be 83 several days this week. I can dream can’t I?

And every few days, I swear this image pops up in my Pinterest feed:


Now I know that is not NORMALLY what it looks like when it snows, but in my head it does. To tell you the truth, I’ve never seen snow. Certainly never saw it fall from the sky. But I will, someday!

In the meantime, that image was the inspiration for this week’s idea board. I wanted to create a fantasy winter wonderland themed wedding. So without further ado, this is my interpretation of it:

To me, the white and blues together are wonderful. And the blue just makes it feel that much more icy and frosty, don’t you think?

Ideas for Hosting Your Own Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

You know what you should do this weekend? Throw a little holiday party for you and your friends. Nothing serious, just a fun, spur of the moment ugly sweater party! Why not? They are easy to get (or make) and don’t need a lot of prepping and planning.

On top of the visual inspiration you’ll find below, here are some helpful ideas to hosting a successful ugly (or tacky) sweater Christmas party:

  • Have lots of holiday music on hand. Preferably livelier, upbeat songs.
  • Have refreshments on hand. They don’t necessarily have to be filled with alcohol, but it can’t hurt. People will likely feel a little uncomfortable knowingly wearing a ridiculous sweater out, so help get them feeling a little more relaxed!
  • Have back up ridiculous Christmas hats or vests on hand for those who don’t come as prepared as others…there is always one!
  • Remember the ridiculous looks of the night by having an equally ridiculous photo booth area.
  • Let people know you are having a little contest for the most outrageously tacky sweater. A small prize will do. Caution: this will almost certainly encourage some of your friends to get their game faces on and go all out with their party looks. You’ve been warned.

And without further ado, a visual inspiration board for a fun, ugly sweater Christmas party:

Cobalt Blue + Gold Holiday Dinner Party

Are you feeling abundantly dosed in Christmas yet?

I swear everywhere I turn there is a red and green Christmas tree covered in glitter. And trust me, I’m a HUGE fan of glitter, but I am a little bored with the red and green. I know, I know, they are the “traditional” Christmas colors.

But answer me honestly; have you really NEVER gotten just the tiniest drop of annoyance seeing red and green everywhere? Something tells me you likely had at one point or another.

Today I wanted to share with you some inspiration for those of you potentially hosting your own dinner party this holiday season. Why not consider a nice cobalt blue and bright yellow gold? They mix up the traditional holiday décor so well, and transition beautifully into New Year’s celebrations.
