I was recently asked to be a guest blogger for the Chocolate Nation www.thechocolatenation.com and share some of my tips for Winter Weddings and holiday parties. Heres a preview of select tips I will feature each Friday during the month of December.
Tip number 1 – is one of those that should always be remembered for any event.
#1 Stay true to who you are…
#2 Winter weddings and events do not always have to be mean white. Feel free to add a fall color as part of your bridal party, flowers or just that pop, in shoes. Shades of blue can also add to that cool feel of winter.
#3 Treat your female guests to pashmina shawls – the men to scarves. This is the perfect gift while guests are waiting for photos or the ceremony/reception to start.
#4 Always dream of a wedding or party in a ski lodge? Rent fireplaces and arrange your cocktail hour (party) to feel like old friends hanging around the lodge after a day of skiing and playing in the snow. (Did you say cocoa and s’mores…we hear you!).
#5 As well as the bars, how about something unusual – a hot bar. Stocked with hot cider, cocoa, coffee and tea – and all the extra accompaniments to give it that extra warmth.
#6 After the cake or dessert, an unusual and sweet finishing touch..a mini chocolate fondue? Perhaps a s’mores station or cognac and chocolate pairings!
