Winter is coming! Here is a modest moodboard that was part of a picture challenge over at iWED . The challenge was to use the middle picture to inspire the rest of the board. I liked the idea of two things for this winter board: varying shades of blue and ice. I chose the concept of going cool and warm for the cocktail hour (you can see the signature drink and hors d’oeuvres by the cake…), by choosing a “not-so-hot chocolate”– cool mocha enhanced by Kahlua and warmed by cinnamon sugar garnish, and a pumpkin soup shooter. At a glance, the cake looks rather simple, however, it’s frosting is an iridescent color and ornamented with snowflakes. The crystal tree brings the reminiscence of walking through an icy forest with icicles falling from its branches. To take the ice concept a bit further, the champagne chiller is exactly that: made of ice. The centerpieces again, use crystals to mimic ice reflective of the theme. I always love candlelight at winter weddings, but it plays so well with this theme because the light bounces of the crystals, subsequently doubling the effect.
