Ah, the holidays. What a wonderful time of year! With a crisp chill in the air and a hot cup of cocoa in hand, the wintery landscape has you dreaming of a white Christmas. For those fortunate enough to live in the North, a snowy winter is a normal occurrence. But for those living in warmer parts of the country, a white Christmas is considered to be rare and even non-existent. The closest some people may come to seeing snow is in a picture or if they happen to attend a winter-themed wedding accented with snowflake wedding favors. Indeed, whether it's white outside or not, wedding favors are a creative and unique way to add a magical arctic ambience to your winter wedding. Here are some ideas to help you create your own winter wonderland.
Seasonal Color Scheme
First and foremost, it's important to keep an elegant but seasonal color scheme in mind! Slate blues, greige accents, ivory, and a hint of forest pine make a wonderful rustic color combination for a winter wedding. Plus, there are plenty of beautiful favors we offer that will blend perfectly with this color palette.
A Holiday Tree-t Indeed
If you're planning your winter wedding around Christmas, why not display festive favors like these snowflake bookmarks below a small Christmas tree to honor the season of giving? You can also scatter these snowflake place card holders in the tree as ornaments. Guests will have fun viewing the ornament on the tree, and then after the wedding getting to take one home as a unique wedding favor that will decorate their own tree year after year.
A Favorable Centerpiece
Use an elegant glass vase to make a seasonal, rustic table centerpiece by placing several winter scented pine cones in the vase. Accent with berries or holiday greenery and let guests know that they can take one home with them after the wedding as a guest favor. For an even bigger winter table display, seasonal place card holders like these pinecones or snow-adorned ornaments are perfect.
Good Wishes are Adrift
Rather than simply placing snowflake favor boxes on the favor table, create a scene! Stack regular cardboard boxes at varying heights on the table and cover with shimmering white fabric to create the appearance of a snowy embankment. Scatter the snowflake boxes on top and around the display. The snow will "drift" away as each guest takes their wedding favor box filled with a delicious treat or gift!
Light up the Night with Snow
Laser carved glass snowflake tea light candle holders are an excellent way to warm up your holiday décor. Each glass holder is touched with an elegant snowflake pattern. When lit and placed around your holiday centerpiece, your table will positively glow. You can also scatter the snowflake votives around the favor table so guests can easily enjoy the warmth of the candle's glow at home.
From cocoa to candles, there are plenty of winter wedding favors that can be incorporated into your wedding décor, bringing the warmth of the holidays to your event.
