Holiday A to Z Guide :: D is for Damask...


Today we're continuing our Holiday A to Z Guide by bringing you the D, E, and F of a fabulous and fun holiday! If you missed A through C, go here to catch up!

So, without further ado, we bring you:

D is for Damask...

Look how gorgeous this damask print looks as a background for these holiday cards. I love how the intricacies of the snowflake play off the detailed damask pattern. The black and white keep it feeling elegant and formal, and the pops of red from the text and the photo give just the right amount of color!

E is for Edible Delights…

Like these adorable ornament cake pops from our friends at Sweet E's Bake Shop!

Check out the rest of their selection of holiday sweets here.
We love how sweet treats like these are so fun and unique; they're sure to put a smile on anyone's face!
If you're more inclined to make your own treats at home, cheers to you! Here's a few ideas that inspire us to break out our baking pans and spatulas:

Beautiful joy cookies, nestled in a gift box.

Adorable North Pole cupcakes! Seriously, how cute are these?

Wouldn't any of these sweets look spectacular wrapped in pretty wrapping, a gorgeous bow, and a custom tag? So simple, yet such a magnificent impact.

F is for Feathers…

Who says feathers and holidays don't go together?
They're delicate, elegant, and sometimes whimsical…the perfect detail for a unique holiday card or Christmas tree!

Here's a few examples of how we've incorporated feathers in a few invitations over the years, and how this idea could be transformed into a beautiful holiday version.

This gorgeous wedding invitation had a fabulous leopard print detail inside (for more info on these, go here), and the long wispy feathers were sealed with a red monogram wax seal.
It doesn't take long to see how feathers like these would look lovely in your holiday decor, as shown here:

And here:

They almost look snow-like! So pretty.

Another way we've incorporated feathers is with this baby shower invitation. We attached a beautiful peacock feather on the front of the invite, and this would be so lovely incorporated into a holiday card! The peacock print liner would be gorgeous if your holiday cards incorporated blues, purples, greens, or silvers…love.

See how peacock feathers are popping up in Christmas decor?




We just love this jewel tone color palette.
So if you're in the mood to try something a little different this season, why not incorporate feathers (or a damask print!) into your decor and/or cards? We think you'll be glad you did! :)

Thanks for stopping by today, & join us Friday for the G, H, and I of our Holiday A to Z Guide!

Happy decorating!
