Wedding Cake Topper

Hi Everyone!

We are back again to show you some more photos from our friend Kim’s wedding, specifically the wedding cake topper!  Be sure to check out our post on the Kid’s Wedding Table if you missed it.  Kim had a small wedding cake to use for the cake cutting and served sheet cake to the rest of her guests.  Both delicious and is a great budget saving option!  I love that the cake was so simple, yet so chic.

Marissa made the fun fabric bunting for the cake topper.  I think it frames the peg people nicely and adds the perfect finishing touch.  She used some leftover fabric that she used to make the fabric bunting for the photo booth (post on the photo booth coming soon!).  To make the bunting, simply cut small triangles from the fabric using pinking shears (notice the top edge is cut using regular scissors).  Next, thread a needle with coordinating bakers twine.  Hand stitch the bunting (fabric flags) together.  Leave extra twine on either side and tie each end to wooden skewers.  The end ties are finished with a simple bow.

And can we talk about the peg people for a second…adorable!  Kim’s friend Kari hand painted them.  To purchase your own custom peg people email Kari at vpkari@hotmail.com  They would also make a great engagement party cake topper, or a sweet little birthday present for a little girl with pegs that represent her family, or close friends.

No detail was overlooked on the cake table.  It was anchored with a burlap table runner and delicate ivory lace was draped on either side.  Look closely and you will see the cake stand was lined with burlap as well.  The large galvanized flower market bucket held fresh hydrangeas and twigs which added nice height.  A pewter pot held a small plant which added a vibrant green to the table.  The lace covered votives and lantern added romantic candle light when lit in the evening.  Absolutely adore the rustic wooden tree with their initials carved in it made by Kim’s sister Allyson and brother-in-law Rich.  Allyson also designed their wedding invitations in which she incorporated the same tree design.  I love when details are incorporated in elements throughout the wedding.  Finally, you have the essential cake knife and server and wine glasses for the toasts.
