Planning your wedding cake table decor is the time during your wedding planning to let loose, have some fun, and get creative. Your cake table is an area of your reception where all of your guests are going to linger at one point or another. Each person will have their chance to ooh and ahh over your delicious cake, beautiful trimmings, and inspiring ideas. To create a show stopping cake display that turns heads, here are a few custom decor ideas we know you’ll love…
Pennant banners (whether homemade or store bought) will add whimsy and creative flair to any cake display. Hang your banner behind your cake table or string it up around the front of your table.
When making your own pennant banner, consider stamping adorable phrases like ‘Love is Sweet’, ‘Let’s Eat Cake’, ‘Eat, Drink, & Be Married’, or simply your names onto each pennant using fabric paint and stamps. This heart stamped burlap banner from funkyshique (shown left) is an adorable way to add whimsy and sparkle to your cake table.
One-of-a-kind cake toppers are perhaps the #1 way to create a conversation piece at your wedding reception. Think custom cake toppers and cake toppers that are very specific to you and your FH’s interests. These unique accessories are the elements that will keep guests talking during your reception.
Edible cake toppers are very popular right not and can be formed into nearly any shape you can imagine. These guitar shaped cupcake toppers from Two Sugar Babies (shown right) are made of pure fondant and are perfect for the couple who shares a love for music.
For another way to add a unique spin on your cake, consider substituting a few bottom cake tiers with a cupcake tower instead. For more of a country feel, place homemade pies on individual pedestals of varying heights in lieu of a larger wedding cake. Your guests will love having so many options for dessert!
Add the finishing touches to your cake table by including custom touches that truly takes your decor from good to exceptional. Add a decorative table cloth and potted herbs and flowers for a touch of femininity. Personalized cocktail napkins (shown left) are made specifically for cake and hors d’oeuvres and can be custom printed with unique designs to fit your wedding theme as well as your names and wedding date. Choose a napkin color that is complimentary to your wedding scheme/table cloth to add a pop of contrast to your overall look.
