{Straight from the Studio} A {Winter} Wonderland

It is bitter cold in Charlotte, NC, today. Not nearly as cold as it is in other places; however, it’s cold for us. The one thing I am missing is a bit of snow, because winter just isn’t winter without some white stuff. (Just a smidge, mind you!)

There is still a lot of time after the holidays to host an open house or throw a party and what better a theme than a winter wonderland! Anders Ruff Custom Designs has created The Printable Winter Wonderland Design Collection (which, by the way, is 50% off through December 15th). A focus on silvers, blues and whites makes this table feel elegant, festive and light. With silver being a very popular tone at this time of year, this collection is both versatile and something that will be in style for years to come. In addition to our Winter Wonderland design collection, we created free printables that coordinate with this collection (included are party logos, recipe cards and food tags).

Our backdrop is a white on white striped fabric with silver woven threads which we adorned with mica glittered snowflake ornaments. We used silver stripe wrapping paper to cover the walls to the left and right of the table to add interest.

The focal point of the table is a glittered pine cone tree, to give off the look of a fresh snowfall.

Smaller gift boxes that were layered with patterned paper and silver sparkly ribbon sat in front of each of the “height” boxes. We wanted the table to feel like it was full of gifts, while displaying the desserts in a clean and classy manner.

We printed a “Let It Snow” banner and wove through silver ribbon and pale blue ric rac.

Modern glass VOSS bottled waters were decorated with festive printable wraps. (We loved the silver lid to those bottles!)

Silver serving platters with rhinestone edge detail were lined with our patterned papers to bring in the blue tones from the collection.

Miniature chocolate bars were wrapped in our printable mini candy bar wrappers.

Wine bottles bottles wrapped with our printed favor tag/label were embellished with silver cording and logos from our collection.

The back row of the dessert table held square dishes with “ric rac” edging.

We also show a photograph of the table with a unique favor or gift item from Persona Gift Pail.
