Christmas Ornaments: the Ultimate Winter Wedding DIY
We are having a ball dreaming up all kinds of out-of-the-box ways to use Balsam Hill ornaments. You may have seen the amazing photo backdrop we created – which put a creative twist on the traditional photo booth – but there are dozens of other ways you can use these gems to add dazzling detail to your winter wedding.
One of my absolute favorites? Place settings! That double as party favors! Like magic, ornaments transform any table spread into a scene straight out of a wintry wonderland. After using the ornaments to find their seats, friends and family can take their tokens home and use them to decorate their own trees. And every year when the holidays roll around and it’s once again time to break out the ornaments, they’ll talk about all the memories made around your special day.
With hand lettered accents, these larger than life acorn ornaments, from Balsam’s Woodland Ornament Set, would be the perfect touches of personalization at an autumn or wintertime wedding. Not only are they promised conversation starters, but guests will appreciate you taking the time to craft customized creations just for them.
A solid globe ornament would also provide a beautiful canvas for calligraphy. If time doesn’t permit for hand lettering or if you’d rather your table settings be more assorted, use an ornament set that comes with varied designs. Using a mix of decor also means that each guest goes home with an ornament specially handpicked for them. Who doesn’t love gifts with thought behind it? Especially when it’s one that you can enjoy for years and years after the occasion.
