Winter Wedding

By gingerbread folkNo Comments

purpleTis the season for romance… Nights by the fireplace and crisp morning walks leaving footprints in the frost. With a chill in the air, it’s the perfect time to warm hearts with your winter wedding.

Imagine an enchanted  Narnia-themed wedding in a magical forest of icicle laden trees…or a Christmas-themed wedding with festive gingerbread trees amd brightly coloured edible baubles.

Our 2-in-1 personalised cookie placecards are a fun icebreaker and will get your guests warmed up and talking. Gingerbread has a natural association with the tradition and timeless themes of winter.

Here are a few more ideas for creating a wintery themed wedding;




  1. Keep your colour scheme soft to match the fallen snow around you. Whites, soft blues and lilacs crispen the atmosphere and set the scene.
  2. Add elements of spice and warmth through your centrepieces, flowers and decorations. We recommend browns and reds to add a little heat.
  3. A fire will keep your guests toasty so candles should be a plenty.
  4. Enchant your guests upon arrival… Have your bridesmards cast confetti snow as you make your dramatic entrance.
  5. The richer the better – fine wine, dark chocolate teams well with spicy gingerbread bomboniere.
  6. Don’t forget your gown – strong lines and soft hues teamed with a wrap cardigan will have you looking stunning and keeping warm too!
  7. Greet your guest with the best champagne and serve a feast to remember.
  8. Don’t forget winter is the time when wedding reception venues offer competitive packages allowing you to put more into the styling of your winter wedding.

For information on Gingerbread Folk cookie placecards, houses and trees, head to and for inspiration, we recommend visiting this wonderful Winter Weddings site by one of our followers.

The Psychology behind how you eat your Gingerbread Man.

Have you ever caught yourself wondering which part of the gingerbread man you should eat first,  or watched on as as a child delights in the slow and seemingly sadistic act of devouring him limb by limb? Some psychologists believe there is a link between how we consume our gingerbread men and our personality types.

Teresa Brunner is a journalist for The Examiner in the US and her 2010 article references a study conducted by American brand Dunkin Donuts asking more than 500 people how they munch on these cookies. Results were sent to Dr. Alan Hirsch, Neurological Director of the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago.

The report conduced “If one chooses to bite the head first, it indicates an achievement-oriented individual, a natural leader, who won’t take no for an answer. If the initial bite is the right hand, it reflects an individual who tends to be skeptical and pessimistic, while those who initially bite the left arm have a flare for creativity and are more extroverted. Those who first choose the legs tend to be more sensitive, revealing in the company of others,” he said.
How do you eat your gingerbread man…Do the results of this study reflect your personality?
