Holding a wedding during the Christmas season can help
tremendously in choosing a color/decorating theme, food,
decorations, favors and more. Ideas abound at this time
of the year.
Decorations and centerpieces are easy to come by
and the glowing lights of a beautiful Christmas tree adds
a special holiday feel. Favors can easily be gift wrapped
in papers that reflect your theme and colors. Below are
some ideas on what to give your guests as a "thank you"
for sharing our special day with us.

Purchase wooden napkin rings (available at most department
or craft stores). Paint the rings in a solid color related to your

candles, or whatever you choose. Seal with acrylic sealer. Write
your names and wedding date on the inside of the napkin rings.

Cut 6" squares of quilted Christmas material. Sew a contrasting
color of seam binding along the edges to finish. Add a small
loop at one corner for hanging.
== Cinnamon Sticks ==
Tie 2 or 3 cinnamon sticks together with Christmas ribbon.
Tuck in a sprig of holly beneath the ribbon. Give these alone
or attach a small bag of flavored hot chocolate with a personalized
label saying "thank-you" along with your names and wedding date.
