Getting Ready for the Holidays
As the holidays draw near many prepare to decorate their homes as they pull decorations and lights from storage in the attic.

Getting ready early for the coming Holidays
Make A List
Imagine your current everyday schedule, now add Christmas shopping, Holiday cooking and baking, Christmas Parties and travel on to this schedule. Overwhelming isn't it? So why not start early? Wouldn't it be wonderful to have all your gift shopping for everyone on your list done by Thanksgiving? Your extra Holiday food items already purchased and stored away for the Christmas cooking and baking? You can't complete the Holiday parties or travel early but getting all your shopping done well before the Holiday season will certainly ensure you will have a wonderful and fun Holiday. When shopping for gifts look for bargains. During the off season of holiday shopping you can usually find great deals. Additionally, don't forget resale and consignment shops, many of which will have items you’re looking for that are practically brand new; many that might still be in the box! Flea markets are another venue to consider when shopping for gifts. A lot of flea market merchants buy in bulk wholesale and consequently can sell the item far less than you might pay at a department store. Furthermore, gift cards make excellent Christmas gifts for anyone on your list and it takes away the chore of you trying to buy the perfect gift. Moreover, crafts such as knitting supplies and art supplies, are great gifts for children and adults alike.
Plan your Holiday Meal and desert menu
If there is a new dish or desert you want to make this year such as a delightful Death by Chocolate cake or an orange schnapps cake for adults only to enjoy with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, then add it to your menu and grocery list. Each time you buy groceries for the family pick up at least three items from your Christmas dinner/desert menu and store them away until needed when you get home. Don't forget that you will need more sugar than you normally buy for the Holiday season, so why not pick up an extra bag or two to stow away for the holiday desserts your family and guests will enjoy during the holidays.
Starting and getting all your holiday shopping done before Thanksgiving and the professional installation of the festive holiday lights will guarantee you a stress free and very magical Holiday Season. Give the people at Everything Winter a call, you'll be glad you did!

Winter Wedding Color Themes That Truly Work
A minimalistic approach works best, especially while choosing the colors for winter weddings. Although greens and reds are a popular choice for this season, it might be a good idea to use them prudently. You could add style and glamor with crystal accents in silver and white. For outdoor winter weddings, you could create an ambiance by pulling inspiration from your surroundings such as evergreen trees, log fires etc.
Winter Wedding Blooms and Hand Calligraphy Invitations
Although beautiful red roses, amaryllis and lilies are a popular choice for winter wedding flowers, there are several other options like white hydrangeas, white boutonnieres etc. These will look splendid with a plain white ribbon. You could add life to your bouquet with crystal embellished ribbons. Indoor winter weddings usually call for formal invitations. A ballroom event is well conveyed with hand calligraphy in rich font. Send these invitations in silver envelope liners. Formal tones can be conveyed by using frosted Plexiglas invitations in silver ink.
Holiday Lighting, Decor and Centerpieces
Professionally designed holiday lighting for your winter wedding can take the ambiance beyond the glowing candle light. These will add romance and style to your wedding venue. You can add drama ice-carved designs. Hanging crystals will reflect the light beautifully. Also, you could surround the centerpiece with gorgeous candles. Tables can be covered with white table linens and frosted glass china. Remember, the lighting element is crucial in adding drama and elegance to your reception site.
Winter Cocktail, Escort Cards and Wedding Music
A Capella quartet rendering background music along with a classical pianist, is an innovative way of adding elegance to your reception. Also, consider hiring a jazz or pop singer to sing your favorite songs on your special day. Winter cocktail calls for warm and soothing drinks. Hot chocolate with warm apple cider, white hot chocolate, eggnog and sweet-flavored vodka are popular choices. Enthrall your guests with escort cards created with hand calligraphy in white ink. Hang it from a crystal candelabra centerpiece instead of the usual escort card tree. Attach the cards to individual crystal and tie it with a ribbon.
The Wedding Cake and Tasty Treats
A traditional wedding cake topped with roses or trimmed in green or red ribbon, looks lovely. However, you can incorporate various other innovative themes that reflect winter such as a vintage-theme, white cake sprinkled with edible silver dust etc. Treat ideas work wonders in sending your guests home satisfied. Popular treats include chocolate-covered cranberries, truffle, roasted chestnuts and delicious cookies.
