For the first time ever, this year I received the new Ikea catalogue before anyone else in the family. Naturally, my mind was busy trying to figure out the new Ikea for wedding feature, while browsing it, and I was soon struck by the massive presence of polka dots and red items. That is why the fifth edition of Ikea for wedding is titled ‘aqua, red and Christmas dots’.
Imagine an intimate wedding, celebrated at the bride’s family home, just before Christmas.
A small gathering would linger between indoor and outdoor spaces, enjoying an informal yet chic atmosphere. (1) the POLARVIDE blanket would be handed out to guests as a favor (together with a DOFTA pot-pourri sachet) and to use to keep warm while walking in the garden. (2) Dragées (the italian confetti sugared almonds) would be found in a GODTA bowl for the guests to eat. (3) Lighting would be set mixing STRÅLA fairy bulbs with JULMYS candels. (4) The four guest tables would be signed by the numbered FENOMEN candles, while (5) centrepieces would be created by arranging every candle with a TOLSBY frame and a POKAL bowl (with red berries and white flowers arrangements). (6) The red+aqua theme would liven up a white cloth, with a PÅNNA tablemat, FANTASTISK aqua napkins and a red DIOD tumbler to complement regular cutlery. (7) guests would leave notes for the newlyweds by hanging cards on the JULMYS holder. (8) the new IKEA PS 2012 collection vase could be a more formal present from the newlyweds to members of the bridal party.
So, what do you think? Like?
