Cool cake series: Donna Wilson inspired

donna wilson inspired wedding cake

I probably say this every time, but this is definitely one of my favorite cakes that Betsy of Nine Cakes made for this series.  Donna Wilson has long been an inspiration for me in the design world, with her kooky knit creatures and home & fashion accessories, but I’ve never seen it worked into weddings so it was definitely something I wanted to tackle.  So many details for the cake were taken from a multitude of Donna Wilson projects to create this little masterpiece, and I couldn’t be more in love with it.  Just look at that cake topper!!

Cool cakes series: ombre studs

 blue green ombre studded wedding cake

This month’s modern wedding cake by Nine Cakes was inspired by this ombre studded bag DIY….its amazing how nicely it translated into fondant right?  I love how its not a super sweet, girly looking wedding cake…the studs give it a distinct bad-ass look, but its still fun and playful.

Our table at The Cream Event NY

Whew!  So if you’ve been keeping up with Twitter and Instagram, you’ll probably know that The Cream Event happened last week in NYC at Center 548 in Chelsea.  Today I thought I’d share some pictures from the Brooklyn Bride table with you!  As a blogger with a table, initially I had no idea what to do….I mean, its not like I have any services to offer these brides other than inspiration, so it was a challenge to figure out something fun to do that was also different.  I collected inspirational images, brainstormed with Minhee of Paper+Cup (who was also an exhibitor), and we came up with the idea for a Confetti Bar!  There were jars of different colored confetti to mix and match however you liked into little glassine envelopes to take away with you.  At first, I thought who was really going to do that, but we really had a steady stream of girls (and guys!) coming by to make their own mixes!  I think it would be a fun idea to do at a bridal shower or even kids party (if you don’t mind confetti everywhere)

Really have to thank Minhee, Brandon (who helped me brainstorm & design the mini notebooks we gave away) and Scout Books who printed the notebooks, Sarah from Blossom & Branch for her GORGEOUS flowers, and the team from Bash, Please for inviting us to take part.

The Confetti Bar garland sign was made with 6″ vinyl letters purchased at the art store, then stuck onto black cardstock and cut out for additional support.  That Helvetica font kept it looking nice and modern.

I couldn’t help but watch everyone playing with the confetti from afar….it was so fun!  The tablecloth was a DIY project based on the confetti tablecloth found on Oh Happy Day.

The final product of what everyone got to take home!  Want a little bit of the action?  I’ve got a TON of leftover confetti and cards left, so if you email me your name & address, I’ll send you your own little envelope!  Just use the subject I WANT CONFETTI!  Only taking requests through Friday, August 24, 2012ALL OUT OF CONFETTI!  SORRY
