If you’re planning a winter wedding, check out this centerpiece idea! I spotted these winter tree centerpieces over at Simply Mad Weddings and love their shimmery, glittery goodness. While holiday-themed or snow-themed weddings are popular, a shimmery winter wedding is a favorite of mine. (A winter wedding with sparkle just seems like a requirement, you know?) These glittery gold or silver winter trees can be used as centerpieces throughout your reception with decorations hung from the branches. Or, display on one central table and invite guests to grab snowflake or star-shaped ornaments as favors. What a fantastic idea! Read on to see more…

Napkin rings. Boring, right? That’s what I used to think, too, until I spotted these! Napkin rings are one of the easiest ways to decorate a place setting. Plus, they’re functional, too. For instance, for an outdoor wedding, napkin rings will ‘weigh down’ the napkin so it stays put. Indoors, makeshift napkin rings (use twine, paper, and a pretty pen) can also serve as place cards for guests. Need a menu? Try a menu wrap which keeps a napkin tied and shows guests the menu. See? It turns out napkin rings aren’t so boring after all. To prove it, I’ve rounded up twenty-one napkin rings for weddings to get those reception ideas flowing… which one is your favorite?
