Board #311 | Winter Whimsyland

We’ve had flurries twice so far, and the temperature is way down, so I thought it might be time for a winter wedding board. I’m not quite ready to go all out with snowflakes and pinecones; instead I thought I’d ease into the season with fresh green in the form of wheatgrass centerpieces and a moss wreath, and bright white in the form of cable-knit details. Winter weddings lend themselves to being more formal than in other seasons, but I wanted to keep this one playful with things like pinwheels, cupcakes and and a gold polka-dotted dress.

Mood: playful, winter
Palette: grass green, white

    Love the cupcakes and pinwheels! I love alternative winter wedding ideas – I’m really not into all-out snowflakes and such (too obvious).

    Beautiful board! I really love the use of grass as decoration either instead of or used with flowers.
