In the deep midwinter warm up the chilliest winter day with tones of rich red and vintage burgundy for a touch of mystery and a splash of green for delightful romance, in this event design by Lexi Skoog of ALEXIA Weddings & Events.

1. SIMPLY DECADENT (Above)
Talk about scrumptious. These mostly white cakes, lavishly adorned with contrasting florals, come from the artistic mind of Chelsea Dudek of Hey There, Cupcake. Pick a flavor, from peanut butter to apple spice, with fillings from fresh fruit to Snickers—you want it, she can make it.


2. THE BEST OF BLING
Timeless symbols of love, these rings capture the depth of your commitment, with burnished gold and gems glowing with an inner fire. His ring is from jewelry by Johan, specializing in unique bands that use natural materials such as antler and out-of-thisworld meteorite. Her black diamond ring is from Apple Valley Diamonds, whose wealth of designs and years of experience are always at your service.


3. STEPPING OUT
You can’t go wrong with this essential ankle-strap sandal with chunky wrapped heel. In black, “Yaro” by Sam Edelman is sophistication itself, but it’s also available in a range of colors from pink to silver—and for the wild ones among you, animal print.


4. SETTING PRETTY
The high style of this place setting from Ultimate Events is just right for your ultimate event. Touches of gold, including the sweet floral sprig, raise the glamour quotient, set off by the transparent charger and chic black and white accents. The delicate evergreen bough is a traditional emblem of winter.


5. STATEMENT PIECE
Andrea Mikla Designs took the motto “Go big or go home” to heart, with bold colors and oversized blossoms in her splendid floral creations. This unstructured arrangement of lush blooms, ready-to-burst buds and draping greenery is perfection in a golden bowl.



6. BE OUR GUEST
This lavish stationery suite by Autumn Made Co mirrors the palette throughout the event. Understated floral designs on the envelope liner and the invitation lighten the mood. It’s tucked into a translucent vellum envelope, then wrapped with a black cord with a gold wax seal for a final flourish.
