It may be March but it’s still snowing in New England so why not share a fantastic little winter inspiration shoot, complete with a sled and nordic ski details!

Meagan Gilpatrick’s inspiration came from a family heirloom that’s been passed down in her family for generations – a Scandinavian nativity pyramid. Keeping with true Scandinavian elements, Meagan incorporated details that were both modern and traditional.

The use of red was a common thread used throughout but what really tied the whole look together was the mix of patterns. Meagan added touches of straw details – in the centerpieces and at the place settings. There was a slight woodland feel to it as well, with the use of sliced timber used as risers for the votives and the pyramid.

And those cakes! I loved the detail of each and every “leaf” and the squirrel cake toppers were just adorable.

Parrott Design Studio did a fabulous job on the stationery as well – a perfect mix of ┬ácausal and elegance. The envelope liner was such a thoughtful detail!

Shot in one of my favorite places (my wedding venue) here are more images from that fun winter day!
