If you and your partner are planning to say “I do” beneath the mistletoe, you’re in luck because the season is ripe with winter foliage that will make your wedding ceremony and reception come alive. From bouquets to centerpieces to other décor, don’t be afraid to use pine, winterberries, holly berries and pinecones to put warmth in your cold-weather wedding.


Red berries, bits of green pine and perfectly formed green leaves all gathered with a white ribbon—a beautiful expression of the holidays.


Winterberry comes in lovely shades of pink and white, adding a blush of romance for the brides and their ‘maids.



At a rustic, country reception, gather red berries with sprigs of bright green pine in rusted pitchers for a touch of beauty with simplicity.


After placing bunches of berries in clean white vases, wrap the napkins at your place settings with a simple red ribbon and a small sprig of pine.



Small favors—such as chocolates or petit fours—call for simple packaging with brown paper, twine, pieces of pine and tiny pinecones.



Adorn your tables with deep reds and artistically arranged piles of pinecones in crystal dishes, interspersed with fresh pine and red berries.



Another centerpiece option is to use small pinecones to decorate a display of white flowers and greenery.



Think you can’t put pinecones in your bouquet? Think again. Teeny pinecones are an outdoorsy touch to an arrangement of pure white flowers.
