Don’t Scramble For Recipes! Get Cookin’ With A Family Cookbook #TBT

We all have them; recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. Take the time this year to make your very own personalized Family Cookbook to share with your family and preserve those secret recipes for years to come.

Ask Your Family

The first step is to find as many recipes as you can. Hopefully you’ll be able to find those special dishes that remind you of home. Don’t forget to ask your family members if they”ve got a secret stash of famous family recipes. Make sure you search high and low for these hidden and delicious treasures.


After you have found all of the recipes that you want to include in your book, organize them by Appetizers, Soups/Salads, Vegetables, Mains, Desserts and Drinks. Try to keep a balance of all of the different types of recipes so the cookbook has an even distribution. And remember, never skip on desserts. (:


The most important part of any cookbook is the beautiful pictures! Try to take pictures while you are making the dish and of course the finished product. Don’t stress out if you don’t have pictures for every dish, use descriptive words to detail how delicious everything tastes!

Cozy Up to Winter Weddings

Sure, winter weddings can be cold, snowy, and unpredictable. But we happen to think that winter weddings are getting a bad break. Consider the crisp and clear photos highlighted by a fresh snowfall or the warm and cozy winter colours that can complement any reception hall.

If you choose to tie the knot during the winter, it may just be the best decision in making your big day truly unique and memorable. At Photobook, we have got some cool winter wedding inspired ideas just for you:

DIY’ing your very own personal Winter Wonderland décor inspired from the great and snowy outdoors:

  • Make use of white birch branches or regular branches by painting them white or silver for reception decorations or centerpieces.
  • Accents of bright red winter berries, festive poinsettias, or even earthy pine cones can add a touch of nature to your decor.
  • Warm white or cool blue lights for heightened winter ambiance.
  • Don’t forget icicles and snowflakes! These items are a sure way to add a little extra sparkle to your decor.

You’ll need transportation for your wedding day and we happen to think the only seemingly acceptable mode of transportation is a horse drawn carriage…of course!


Winter weddings can be a little on the chilly side so you will need the proper attire for the day. A beautiful addition to your wedding dress could be a white coat or cape or even a fur shrug! You could be a little playful and colour match your wedding colour to your jacket or cape.


Say thank you to your guests with winter inspired favors such as homemade hot chocolate in a jar, snowflake shaped wine stoppers or personalized mugs.



We hope these winterized wedding ideas have sparked your imagination in creating the most beautiful and sparkling wedding day!

Happy planning!
