Other holiday wedding reception ideas can include a festive New Year’s theme, with plenty of the requisite over-the-top décor. Think gold and silver, champagne glasses and…holiday drinks! That’s right, why not incorporate a decadent eggnog martini or gingerbread Manhattan into your list of wedding reception ideas? Many couples opt for a signature cocktail, served in addition to wine and beer at their receptions. Why not make yours holiday-appropriate!

If a winter wonderland is something you would like to incorporate into the reception décor, it can be done with twinkling lighting, some artfully placed candles, crystals to reflect light, and a backdrop of white, white, white! White linens, white fabric draped from the walls and ceilings.

Take it one step further by adding soft shades of blues and gold to the lighting or add tall twig centerpieces in crystal vases that are spray-painted white and maybe even sprinkled with silver or gold glitter!
