For the bride…

Love the color and texture added with this peachy corsage.

Forgo a sash of color for this precious splash of rosette!

Add a flower in your hair with this sweet thing!

 For the groom and groomsmen…

How about these bouttonnieres?

One of my favorite ideas! This little flair for the groom's tie.

 For the bridesmaids…

A sweet corsage in place of a bouquet.

A fabulous gift for your bridesmaids is a small clutch like this one.

AND WHY do I want to get caught under the mistletoe.  To kiss, of course!

But. Again. Why?  Just as the sixpence in your shoe, mistletoe is yet another age-old good luck charm.  Kissing under the mistletoe is said to ward off evil spirits and ensure a long, happy life and marriage.  It evolved through the years from a pagan myth to a sign of truce in battle.  Fighting soldiers would put down their arms if they came upon a tree with mistletoe and would respect a peace agreement until morning.  Just like my grandmother told me when I was getting married, never go to bed fighting with your husband.  Now, morning is different! 🙂

If you are a fair maiden, place one of these evergreen sprigs under your pillow and dream of your Prince Charming. 

If you are getting married during the most wonderful time of year, throw some mistletoe in your bouquet, use mistletoe kissing balls at the reception, or pin some on your man.  I love this boutonniere below!

Regardless of why you kiss under the mistletoe, there is an etiquette to follow.  When a man kisses a woman under the mistletoe, he must remove one of the white berries from the evergreen plant.  When all the berries are gone, no more kissing.  You’ll have to get some more mistletoe to keep kissing or move somewhere else romantic!

Have a Happy Holiday Season and Share the Joy with Others!
