6 black and white striped cakes

black-and-white-striped--wedding-cakes

Black and white stripes have been trendy for awhile and seem to be going nowhere! I’ve blogged about it before here, but then I started to notice the amount of black and white striped cakes. They add a beautiful graphic punch to the wedding scene. Plus, you can add any accessory to them for a bright punch.

DIY: Decorate a pie box

DECORATE-A-PIE-TAKEAWAY-BOX-WITH-WASHI-TAPE

I love a bright and cheery takeaway at an event. You feel so much more a part of the action! Consider gifting a piece of pie or cake to each guest with a pie box that you’ve decorated with some fun washi tape. It’s so easy to do and worth just the little bit of effort.

Materials: pie/cake boxes (I got mine from A La Modo Etsy shop), washi tape in a few different colors,

MATERIALS

Step 1: Assemble your pie box.

Step 2: Tape up the sides in stripes. Guests will have to slice the box open with a knife if you wrap it all the way around or cut slices into where the box joins together.

So easy yet impactful!

6 cool flower girl ideas

FLOWER-GIRL-IDEAS

The flower girl has the unofficial job to charm the guests. Usually all she has to do is be her cute self, but with the addition of the right prop she is sure to make her walk memorable. Here are some cute ideas for a flower girl.

Clockwise from top left:

  1. Flower basket. Nothing says flower girl more than a flower basket. Try this one.
  2. Whole flowers. Instead of flower petals, buy some fabric flowers at the craft store.
  3. Instead of dropping flowers, drape your girls in floral crowns.
  4. Have the girls hold chalkboard signs with cute sayings.
  5. Holding a floral wand would illicit many oohs and ahhhs.
  6. There’s nothing cuter than a cheeky sign held by an adorable little girl.
