Romance is in the Air this Christmas

There’s something about Christmas that feels decidedly romantic. Our romantic Christmas Card took its inspiration from the runways this year.  

Romance is in the Air this Christmas

This holiday season you can expect to feel romance in the air as the latest fashion trend continues to channel a noveau Victorian vibe.  Fashion-wise, this means light blouses, breezy silk skirts and see through clothing such as sleepwear presented as outdoor wear. “Lace is a common element in ensembles that are considered romantic; it’s a prominent material used in lingerie, and it’s something that’s transcended decades,” says Alicia, who runs a lingerie fashion blog, Bra Doctor. Commenting on how fashion designers took this element to the next level, “Elie Saab opted for pretty panels of lace in a low-cut white dress, perfect for a dramatic cover up in the summer, or with a strategic slip for a night out. Givenchy takes a cue from a chemise with a peekaboo lace bust and a lacy hem, while Oscar de la Renta attached a thin lace neckline to a gorgeous pink gown.” Meanwhile, Roberto Cavalli and Gucci infuse their fabrics with jewels, ruffles and embellished trims with romantic air.

Christmas card ideas
These proud grandparents had a lot to share, and their Christmas card shows it. So many beautiful grandkids! And they managed to get them all together in one great photo, which we know isn’t easy to do. Kudos to them, both for the photos and for finding the perfect card to show them off. Janice, the industrious grandmother, explains how they managed to get everybody together.

“We scheduled a photographer to meet us during a family reunion in Park City, Utah. She photographed us in two nearby locations, first, using an old barn as a backdrop and second, in a horse pasture with the mountains as a backdrop. The hardest part has been keeping the photos “under wraps” until the Christmas cards were mailed, so it’s exciting to finally be able to unveil our wonderful family pictures.
