I couldn’t let December get away without posting at least one inspiration board, and I knew it had to be a Christmas-y, winter-y one! Right now, I’m loving white and gold – it’s warm and rich, yet it can be surprisingly simple. Here, I’ve imagined decorating with wreaths on the doors and windows, pillar candles on the table, and whimsical menus and stationery. Instead of nutmeg, garnish eggnog with tiny flakes of edible gold. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, how about a gingerbread “town square” cake? A long-sleeved lace dress is a perfectly timeless choice for a winter bride.
Mood: winter warm, sweet and simple
Palette: golden ochre, eggnog white
