Oh, to marry in the Winter! A Winter bride. To be a bride in any Season is blissful. However, to appreciate the bride of Winter against a Winter white background is a vision to honor. There is something ethereal about a bride with a background of glistening snow. A natural “wedding garland”, indeed. For those that marry in climates where snowfall will bring swirling flurries cascading into a Winter wonderland, this ode to Winter bliss is for you. Crystalline water ice that falls from clouds as snow provides an exquisite setting for such a momentous and significant event as a wedding. White against white. Perfection. What better way to welcome the coolness of the season than with a “wrap” of fur? A bride wrapped in the warmth and glamour of fur is a timeless classic. Elegant whether real fur or faux. A Romantic vision of “Pure Allure”

Whatever “wrap” of warmth and elegance is chosen, whether a stole, a capelet (or cape) or a bolero, the luxurious embellishment around the shoulders of a Winter bride will capture a lovely vision of elegance. A Stole, narrower than a shawl, pairs sensationally with a gown of traditional white or even with a modern twist of color. Wrapped and carried about the bride’s shoulders or arms, its luxurious comfort with a sheen is an elegant adornment. “Off the shoulder style” that is a fashion statement of iconic status, the stole, as well as the other layering garments that can “wrap” in style, are often lined with luxurious fabrics, such as smooth satin. Perfection for a Winter bride

In appreciation of the Winter bride, congratulations to those that will “Wed” in the beautiful season of Winter. As snowflakes dance and the weight of the snow lays on the tree branches, may the imprints made in the snow create memorable moments of bliss. Wintry bliss and wedded love

Icy Brilliance Of Candle Glow: Ice Luminaires

The Elegance Of Ice:  The Ice Luminaire
The Elegance Of Ice: The Ice Luminaire

December 21st, 2012 marks the Winter Solstice and the first day of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere. What better way to enter into the Winter Season than with an appreciation for the icy brilliance Winter bestows. The Ice Luminaire. Winter’s delight, indeed…

Ice luminaires are a stunningly elegant and natural way to light up the night. These icy ornaments add wonderment to the exterior during the Winter months when filled with the flickering light of the candles they hold. Imagine the candlelight shimmering inside the crystal vase of ice during the long, dark Winter evenings. Certain to impart a sense of inner peace and appreciation on a cold Winter’s Night.

In the climates where the temperature dips and stays below freezing for weeks at a time, ice luminaires provide a long lasting and beautiful, enchanting focal point to delight in. These ice molds are not difficult to make, and there are many variations in instructions of how to make these vessels of clear crystal and frosted ice. Depending upon size of ice lanterns desired, the options are many, but certainly worth the endeavor. It is limitless as to what can be added to the water mix prior to freezing of these ice candles. Customized style, for certain. Pine boughs, cranberries and twigs are some of the offerings that speak Holiday. But as the Winter lingers on, a pop of bright color with sliced oranges would certainly add a fresh twist to the Winterscape of white. Either embellished or simple icy vessels with candlelight, the ice luminaire will not fail in pleasing all that delight in its beauty. Living in the Midwest, we have the benefit of dwelling in the beauty of their icy glow with Winter’s arrival of white…
