Here’s how we’d throw one heck of a NEW YEARS WEDDING! 5…4…3…2…HAPPY NEW YEAR and WEDDING! Aren’t you EXCITED already!?! 🙂

{ Christmas Wedding }

Is there a more magical time of the year than Christmas?! I truly LOVE LOVE and LOVE EVERYTHING about this time of year! It really is the “most wonderful time of the year” …so why not add to the celebrating with a “Christmas Wedding”?! I’m not going to lie, I may be vicariously living through this blog and wishing I had planned my own Christmas wedding…however…I think that is where a lot of my blog idears come from! So, if you do a Christmas wedding, invite me darnit; so I can vicariously live through you! Now, back to talking about me! 🙂 If I had a Christmas wedding; this is just what I would do…

I love these faux wood and snowflake invites!

39511c11a0e5f4b4abb6e65bf80b7ea8

This time of year, most churches are decorated BEAUTIFULLY with trees and pointsettias, so decorating has just gotten easier! Now, if you were me…we would take all our pictures before and have a ceremony when it’s dark (which is 4:00 these days) when all the trees and candlelight can perfectly glow for that warm, romantic, and magical look we’re going for! Love the added garlands in lanterns in these two photos!

Plus, I need this fur…just in case… 🙂

59fa0f34b48a9f2f83049b57da31ea1c

What better reason for a statement red lip and nail…

e9158e4c00daa006545f23dace83744f

I somewhat in LOVE with this evergreen bouquet, plus I love the smell of a Christmas tree! Maybe I’d add a little red sprigs for Christmas sake!

921304d2e40a8738b8a1bd855418724e

Since it’s Christmas, we all need a little more sparkle…I think the bridesmaids would love us FOREVER if they got to wear something FAB like this with their awesome EVERGREEN!

After this GORG ceremony…we should probably take a carriage ride with champagne to the reception hall..

c2a888f27b16e239599cd2c14c825b92

Where it would be ALL lit up with SOO MANY CHRISTMAS lights you can hardly believe your pretty little eyes!

Kind of love this look…plus I think it would smell AMAZING!

805680e8be7627ea52e35be0d3c8d63f

Our guests could sign ornaments for our Christmas tree instead of a guest book! How special would those be to read every year while decorating!

2f83cceebffdb4de83b6f25461304acc

Warm cocktails…mmmmmmm…

859de312a963206ed3b3ff57f51c5f59

A simple cake decorated with greenery!

{ FALL in LOVE with the TREATS of FALL }

Visuelle

May I start by saying to my fellow northerners…happy fall wedding season friends! (And to my not-so-notherner readers…I don’t mean to leave you out!!! If it makes you feel any better…we promise to be very jealous of your warmer weather ways in a few short months!) The joy and appreciation for the change of seasons is what keeps “most” of us northerners here, instead of those nice warm Florida Keys! Once you’ve grown up here, you can’t help but love that first crisp fall day, the first snow, the first breezes of spring, AND SUMMER…ohhhh summer…we practically hold out breath to make it last longer! The moral of the story is there are joys and treasures we adore about each time of year; and the comforts of those seasons are special to add into the details of your love day. Fall harvest time gets us enjoying an array of treats and they’re great way to incorporate the season into your day! Here’s a few idears my FALL loving FRIENDS! 🙂

 

Okay…this cake or cupcake flavor just sounds DELICIOUS! Pumpkin spice with caramel cream cheese frosting…Oh…MY…YUM!

8eefe5643719a02edc644467820818ce

 

 

Caramel apples…AND PRETTY caramel apples at that! What guest wouldn’t love one of these as a favor!

ba41b47e7394830834fc3c934a29b9c4 53822184c6eafcb599db70670bb39bbb

 

 

 

Okay…so for some reason I always incorporate milk and cookies as a fall thing…school starting-kinda treat! I think this suits probably any season…but how delighted as a guest would you be to see these little treats coming around for a late night treat!

 

3555fba4df4ad07121085b0690ce4be3

 

 

The cuteness of a mini pie is unbearable! How adorbs and delicious do these things look!

e64c35e4ced894fdc0d5266682bf7e7d

 

Bite size pumpkin pies…I may be in heaven!

b4c4b5988df05c0967da14ed305964ec

 

 

Have you seen these things?! They call them PIE POPS…I’ve decided I HEART PIE POPS before even taste testing! Cuteness on a stick!

0877e67a9cdccad57b24a42778a2924c

 

 

Caramel corn = HAPPINESS

9852acf6ac83a43697086baf7ab309e0

 

 

Or if you want more options for the snack happiness of your guests…how about this! EVERYBODY loves popcorn…I “think” it’s a FACT?! 🙂

 

970406771918fd3c9513930b6f18cdc9

Or how about a signature drink…have you ever had a hot apple cider cocktail…UMMM…AMAZ-ING!

24de4bf320c647013f87cd259cec0a96

 

Or more kid-friendly option…apple cider floats…doesn’t that sound YUMMERS?!

259f9f0e422089b0462845341894a65b

 

 

Okay and finally, one of my FAVORITE cold weather party ideas!  A HOT COCOA BAR! UMMMM…YES PLEASE! And let’s not be bias…how bout a HOT BAR?! Cocoa, coffee, and cider with all the fixings and additives (chocolate, white chocolate, peppermint, caramel, marshmallows, maybe a little something-something for the guests over 21) to warm those sweet little guests of yours up in a hot minute!
