First off, since I still haven’t heard from the winner of the Beau-coup giveaway, we’ve got a new winner! Bo who said, i love the whole leaf tea sachet favors. they are in such elegant pyramid shaped boxes with a leaf sticking out on top. i picture them being used as favors in a winter wedding with a lunch reception, along with vintage teacups. Bo, email me to claim your prize!

I know we had a whole week of winter wedding boards last week, but how could I resist a snowy log cabin, deer-topped cupcakes, and kissing in the snow! In my mind, this intimate wedding takes place at a cozy inn, with a day of cross country skiing followed by a ceremony (maybe a short one outdoors!) and a reception full of cookies and eggnog.

Mood: warm and cozy
Palette: eggnog, nutmeg

Lots and lots of catching up and holiday projects this weekend for me – including getting some gift guides ready for you next week! In the meantime, some of my favorite things from the internet this week (half of them are a little holiday happy)…

I’m so sorry for such a late post today – I just got back from New York late last night, and have so much catching up to do! Anyway, I thought we’d end our week of winter wedding inspiration with red and white – peppermint sticks, pomegranates and seeds, poinsettias, and a hit of red lipstick of course. This one might be a little too Christmas-y for a wedding, but it could certainly make for a sweet holiday party!

Mood: cheerful cocktail party
Palette: snow white, cranberry red

When it comes to the holidays, I’m pretty traditional as far as decorations go, but for day three of our winter wedding inspiration and I just couldn’t resist the Tiffany blue tree from Cottage Living. And a silver jingle bell that’s actually from Tiffany’s? Perfect! I imagine this wedding to be simple and charming, with a reception of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dessert.

Mood: charmingly whimsical
Palette: Tiffany blue, gold, silver, cream
