Christmas is just around the corner and even closer if you’re having a wedding in the festive period. Wedding time moves much faster than normal time when there’s lots to do and arrange, it’s a known fact;) While Christmas and wedding time at once just flies by!
Wedding table names can be one of the most elusive and difficult thing to decide. So many ideas and nothing quite seems right. So this post and the one’s which follow will attempt to help by throwing some more ideas out there. Working on Christmas and seasonal themes.
Title made from the Natale Stationery Range
Idea 1. Snow or Similar
The Eskimo words for snow at least according to Wikipedia is a myth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eskimo_words_for_snow
“The “Eskimo words for snow” claim is a widespread, though not entirely correct, idea that Eskimos have an unusually large number of words for snow. In fact, the Eskimo–Aleut languages have about the same number of distinct word roots referring to snow as English does, but the structure of these languages tends to allow more variety as to how those roots can be modified in forming a single word” – Direct from wikipedia
But that doesn’t mean we can’t start on that theme exploring terms which are associated with winter
Snow – Ice
Blizzard – Frost
Permafrost – Snowstorm
Snowdrift – Ice crystals
Snowflake – Northwind
Idea 2. Colder Places
We could also go with Geography and select places that you expect to see some snow or are at least a bit more northerly or mountainous.
Scotland – Sweden
Norway – Alaska
Switzerland – Austria
Siberia – Denmark
Canada – Artic
Greenland – Iceland
Rockies – Siberia
But it need not be just countries and regions we can go with cities to.
Oslo – Trondheim
Archangel – Moscow
Zurich – Anchorage
Quebec – Montreal
Toronto (probably anywhere in Canada!) – Edinburgh
Idea 3. Reindeer Names
None of these have been too Christmassy so to finish this post we’ll go with something thoroughly Christmas. Read on, they need no introduction.
Dasher – Dancer
Prancer – Vixen
Comet – Cupid
Donner (variously spelled Dunder and Donder)
Blitzen (variously spelled Blixem and Blixen)
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
If you need more there are new ones
Fireball – Leroy
Pablo – Olive
More Christmas table names coming on a blog to you soon (probably this one)
