Transforming your venue into a winter wonderland

Wedding table Credit: www.owenhowellsphotography.co.ukQ – I want to transform our venue into a winter wonderland. Where should I start?

"Always remember that a winter wonderland doesn’t have to be on a big scale with fake snow and oversized props, it can be focused on more subtle details and be just as effective. 

"Any event taking place during the festive season should be adorned with shimmer. Use silvers, golds and coppers and incorporate them into details such as charger plates, cutlery and tea light holders to help bring your theme to life. It’s common to use more traditional hues such as reds, but you can combine metallics with any colour you choose.

"Match the Christmas tree or dim its lights. I have been to venues, and on a few occasions, the tree has been lit with a cold or blue light. This looks lovely when the room is bare, but if you have warm-coloured fairylights above you or candles on your tables, you might find the lights clash. Don’t be afraid to ask the venue if you can switch off the tree lights should this be an issue.

"Make sure you use seasonal flowers and greenery. Something as simple as ivy or berries can make a real difference to your centrepieces and give them a festive feel without being over the top.

"Tall gold candelabras, boxes of blankets, sofas in warm colours, antique rugs and wooden logs will make your venue feel cosy.

"If you’re having a photo booth, stock up on elf ears, Santa hats, reindeer horns and red noses to add a festive feel to your entertainment."
