Cake/Cupcake Toppers

The ever important cake or cupcake toppers are often a design detail that is left to the last minute. If you are using florals as your topper, you can usually iron out the topper detail with your florist well in advance. However, if you are leaning in a non floral direction, take this opportunity to conceptualize something unique and different. If you don't feel confident enough in your creative ability to take on a large scale DIY project but would still like to create something personal and different for your wedding day, your cake topper is the perfect project that is relatively small and unthreatening. You can do something as simple as adding glitter to a wood monogram which will sit easily on top of your cake. If you want to get a bit more involved, you can create dozens of paper roses which will not only top your cake, but will also cascade down the sides of the cake. One of our favorites right now is using wire to spell out "We Do" and surrounding the sign with some simple flowers. You can also create a relatively simple bunting banner for the top of your cupcake display. If you are thinking you would like to incorporate some your wedding flowers in the design of your cake topper, think of ways to add to the flowers with some gold glittered cut out hears shapes, or even a rustic wood carving with your first initial + groom's first initial etched directly into the wood carving.

 

Happy Planning!
