5 Christmas Celebration Ideas for Couples

Paris under the snow

Christmas is a hectic time of year for many of us. However, it can also be a very romantic time for couples of all ages. If you are new to your relationship or have been with your significant other for many years, take advantage of the festive season to spend some much needed quality time together. At McLean House, a popular Oregon wedding venue, we have come up with the following romantic and fun celebration ideas for couples during the Christmas season!

Shop in the City

Christmas shopping might be a necessary evil, but it can be an opportunity to spend some festive time together. Instead of heading to the mall, take a trip into the nearest city. Focus on shopping in small stores that are local to your area, which will support small business owners and your local community.

While shopping, take your significant other out for a romantic meal. Whether for lunch or dinner, there are plenty of fun and exciting restaurants to try. Take advantage of the big city vibe to enjoy people watching and the variety of decorations. The crisp, cold air and the city lights will help you both celebrate the season!

Wrap Presents Together

Once all of the presents on the Christmas list have been purchased, it’s time to wrap them up. Take advantage of this rather mundane activity to spend time together. Light a cozy fire, pour some red wine, and play Christmas music to set the mood.

Go Ice Skating

Ice skating is a wonderful cold weather recreational activity to do as a couple. Even if it isn’t cold enough in your neck of the woods, there should be an indoor rink that isn’t too far away. Consider the drive a lovely day trip! If you and your loved one would rather be outdoors, consider a hike or a snowshoe trip if you can make it to the snow.

Get Caught Under the Mistletoe

Mistletoe is traditionally a romantic plant during the Christmas season. It has small yellow flowers and white waxy berries, and comes in sprigs that are easy to hang. The tradition is that once you find yourself under a sprig of mistletoe, then you must be kissed!

Take advantage of the season and find yourself under the mistletoe with your significant other. If you don’t have any mistletoe handy, it’s time to buy a sprig or two…or one to hang on every door frame in your house.

Book a Couple’s Massage

Baby, it’s cold outside…and the perfect time to relax with a massage. Call a spa in your town to book a couple’s massage. Both of you will appreciate the break from this hectic time of year.

Summer Wedding Trends

Dynamic Colors

Bright hues are a must do for the summer weddings. Bright pinks, teals and oranges are in this year. But be careful; don’t try to many colors in one space. It is best to balance them out.

When planning your big day, think of sophisticated brights. Sticking with just two hues (or two plus an accent color) will keep your space balanced. Stay away from splashing color all over your reception space. To be elegant use one dynamic color for a strong statement, such as an all-pink centerpieces or bold orange table linens. Add you favorite color combos.

Easy Going Music

It’s summer which means easy listening is a must. The ambience is key to a wedding and tuning into more laid back tunes is a major trend right now? You can hire a pianist or a string trio for a more formal cocktail hour, but to really embrace the summer season, think about laid back music styles. For the reception, you can heat up the evening with steamy sultry.
