Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
The winter months are upon us, people! Our office is located in Michigan, meaning… it’s FREEZING! As the snow falls and covers the once full-of-life trees, we mourn the warm days that once embraced our sun-kissed skin. Although we’re obviously not fans of the cold, we can’t help but agree that the snow-covered trees, the icicles forming off the roof, and the soft white snow covering the ground make for a perfectly peaceful and magical setting. As we take in this beautiful scenery, we thought it was the perfect time to introduce to you this elegant and cozy theme for your event!

While planning your big day, the color scheme should always be at the top of your list. After all, the details like the invitations, the dress, the decor and everything in between centers around this specific topic. It’s important to not have more than 3-4 colors in your event to ensure that all of the decor will flow perfectly! Use our Winter Wonderland palette as a guide to help pick your color schemes for your special day!
Setting the Scene
Once you’ve picked your colors, it’s time to get to the fun stuff! Winter is a magical and peaceful time; everyone’s holiday spirits come out, and the anticipation for Christmas grows and grows! One very important element to your decor should be the lighting and the draping, these two should go hand in hand when planning for this theme. Choose blue lighting over regular lighting; this is a way to showcase an icy and wintry ambiance that’ll take your guests into a magical setting. Adding white draping to your backdrop and walls allows the light to flow at your venue which allows for optimal winter illusions.
We’ve also compiled a list of items you should add to your decor for the evening!
