With the use of 3 basic colors a cohesive theme provides
a sparkle without becoming messy.
Now that 2015 is firmly underway it's good to look back at the darker days of last year. The Holiday season is a strange sort of time. It's hard to imagine when the sun is returning and Spring is arriving, that we go through such a great deal of effort to create a special intimate setting in our homes and gardens. New Years Eve is the highlight ceremony of all the festivities, so I would like to go the extra mile for this event. A themed Winter Wonderland Ball invitation was send out, describing not only the formal information but also telling a little made up story about King Frost and his Ice Queen. There was a strict dresscode to enhance the feeling of a wonderland setting. The arriving guests were very creative with their outfits, from wireless lights sewn into hairpieces to snowflake make-up. It all looked shimmery and icy! The Beverage table got the 'American Treatment' for these elaborate tables are very uncommon in the Netherlands.
