Winter Design Board

I know that for those of you in the North it has felt like winter for a couple of months now but it just getting cold down south and we only now starting to think about our winter themed weddings and events :) Lucky us!
I am loving the winter white, ivory, silver and black color theme this year - always a classic look.
The Design Board/Ideas:
I found the ornament placecard image online and thought it was a great idea for not only a placecard holder but also a favor - a idea that works for both weddings and holiday parties (personal and corporate).
Of course the wedding dress is from the newest line available at Tre Bella Bridal - Melissa Sweet. It is actually one of my favorite new dresses. It has beautifully appliqued flowers with crystal details. The bridesmaid dress is by Siri Bridesmaids - how cute right :)
We have really been into the ribbon wrapped vase look for the holidays. We particularly suggest using velvet ribbon - it gives a great soft texture and an almost snowy look. My recommendation for winter white/ivory flowers: roses, amaryllis, freeisa, ranunculus, peonies if you can get them (there is now a winter growing season - yeah), dusty miller (a cool silver accent), cream hypericum berries!
Check out the cake image I found online - another great way to work ribbon into the theme of the event.
