3 Ways to Incorporate Emerald

Posted by Caitlin on Dec 18, 2012

In case you haven’t heard, Pantone recently announced that emerald is the color of 2013, which means couples will be searching for their “something emerald” instead of their “something blue.” Here are three ways to incorporate a green color scheme into any upcoming wedding:

1. Table Decor: Place emerald accents throughout the tables in your glassware, menus or plate settings.

There’s nothing more creative and simple than incorporating a floral design into your wedding cake. Traditionally, wedding cakes were adorned with fresh flowers, but nowadays, couples are also adorning their cake with silk flowers instead. As long as you choose a floral design that accents your wedding theme, it’s bound to look beautiful. Are you using fresh flowers or silk flowers? Let us know in the comments below.

3 Delicious Dessert Displays

Posted by Caitlin on Nov 01, 2012

Having trouble deciding how to display your desserts? Here are three delicious dessert displays we can’t resist:

1. Tasty Themes: When you’re picking out desserts for your dessert table, pick a theme. Whether it’s fruit, your favorite color or a combination of both, incorporate that theme into your cupcakes, brownies, cookies, jam and any other tasty treats. Tip: Arrange your desserts on various platters of differing heights. This creates a more compelling visual for your guests.

2. Wine Barrels: Remember we mentioned how you can use wine barrels as aisle markers. Well, you can use them for your dessert table too! It’s easy–simply secure a piece of wood on top of two wine barrels. Tip: Perfect for any outdoor, rustic wedding!

3. Matching Backgrounds: If you’re having an indoor reception, consider the existing decor that your venue already has. Design your cake after the wallpaper or use an antique dresser they may have to display your desserts. Tip: Take advantage of what your venue has to offer. There’s nothing wrong with coordinating! After all, that’s why you choose it, right?

Who doesn’t love cake!?

Posted by bridalbuds on Aug 09, 2012

Well, I don’t love cake but I knew it was something we had to have at our reception and the bakery I grew up going to (North College Hill Bakery) was the only place I would get it from. I’m not a huge fan on the traditional flower and buttercream decorations so we stepped slightly out of the box on this one. The cake had different layers of either white cake with lemon filling, white cake with raspberry filling, or just plain white. We had a small layer of buttercream frosting on the outside. Then came the fun part—my MOH and I found some peach candies from a bulk candy distributor. We put them in ziplock bags and took out some pent up aggression on them. 🙂

The cake topper says “I love you” in French but also looks similar to my name (Jaime) so we like things with that on it. I found the cake topper from an adorable shop on Etsy. The dishes with little chocolate covered pomegranates were purchased on Amazon.com. The cake was not only delicious, it looked awesome too!
