It’s hardly a secret that I love a little fairytale inspiration! Today’s feature is inspired by one of my life-long favorites, The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson. I must not be the only once, since Disney is just about to release their latest movie, Frozen! I have no idea how close it will hew to the original story, but at least it looks gorgeous!
I wanted to stick a little closer to the classic version with this board – a palette of wintry white, ice blue, and hints of rich winter rose could not be more romantic or suited to a frozen wedding. In the story, intrepid village girl Gerda sets out to rescue her childhood friend, Kai, from the clutches of the Snow Queen, a beautiful but cold-hearted ruler of the realm of winter who has warped his heart and stolen him away. Gerda travels to the frozen north, inspired by the icy tundras of Anderson’s native Denmark. Traditional Scandinavian elements, such as a Krasekake (Danish cookie cake) or Nordic berries would add the perfect touch to a fairytale wedding inspired by Hans Christian Anderson. Roses are symbols of life and love in the story, making them the ideal flower for this design!
