Since tomorrow is Halloween and I have sweets on my mind, it seemed like a good time to showcase one of my favorite ideas for wedding favors.
I give you the brownie pop.
These fun and delicious treats make a great idea for favors – or just for the dessert bar if you’re planning one for the reception. Or you could just have a plate at each table so guests could enjoy one after dinner but before cake. Read More
If there’s a week when orange is the color to love, this week might be it.
With Halloween just a few days away the stores are awash in various shades of orange and while it might not be the first color you think of for a wedding cake it might be perfect!
There are so many shades of orange that could be used to accentuate the fall theme of your wedding, and today’s cake does it in a subtle not-over-the-top way. Read More
As much as I enjoy the occasional non-traditional wedding cake, for me it’s all about going back to the basics.
A simple white wedding cake.
I love white wedding cakes in part because they are a great canvas for whatever you might want to add.
This time of year – late fall – I love seeing gorgeous white cakes adorned with fresh flowers in dark hues. Black Magic Roses, Gerbera daisies in dark red, anything that is dramatic! Read More
With just over a week left in October it’s time to start thinking about your late fall or early winter (gasp!) wedding reception.
Yes, it’s true – as much as we want to hold on to the warmer weather winter really is coming and it’s best to be prepared to plan a great reception!
I’m loving today’s fun wedding favor – personalized evergreen tree seedlings.
These seem like a perfect wedding favor for this time of year – especially as we inch closer to the winter holidays.
Whether you’re a tree person or if you’re just having a rustic fall wedding, these seedlings are a great fun favor.
Each seedling is individually wrapped in a burlap bag and finished with a complimentary personalized tag.
You can find this favor here.
As we inch closer and closer to Halloween I love finding cakes that fit in the season!
Today’s naked chocolate cake is perfect for fall (and even a Halloween-themed reception).
I’m normally not a huge fan of “naked” cakes – I love icing too much to serve a cake that is seriously lacking in that department.
But this cake is too pretty to dislike! I love the dark chocolate cake and the hint of light pink icing peeking out from between the tiers. Read More
Once again we’re talking about chocolate! I can’t help myself – with all the Halloween candy at the stores my brain immediately thinks “chocolate.”
I think chocolate cakes are perfect for fall and winter weddings – they’re dark and decadent and seem to fit in with the colors and themes at this time of the year.
A chocolate cake in the summer would just be too much. But in the fall, when it’s cold and blustery outside, it’s perfect. Read More
As the weather gets cooler it can only mean one thing – cold and flu season is on its way.
And while that’s not exactly what you want to think about when you’re planning a wedding, keeping your guests germ-free is a nice thought!
Which brings me to today’s fun – and practical – wedding favor: personalized mini bottles of hand sanitizer. Read More
The temperatures are turning cooler. Everyone is busting out sweaters. The leaves are falling.
It’s pretty much the most wonderful time of year.
And if you’re planning a fall wedding there are so many amazing ways to incorporate fall into your reception.
Take today’s wedding cake as an example. This tree-inspired cake would be perfect at your fall wedding, especially if you’re hosting a rustic party. Read More
We’re getting closer to Halloween which means the store shelves are stocked with all kinds of chocolate. And that’s not a bad thing in my opinion!
Fall seems like the perfect time to have a chocolate wedding cake – especially one that is frosted with deep, rich chocolate icing.
I’m particularly fond of today’s chocolate cake thanks to the rustic vibe the icing gives off. Read More
It’s that time of year again – when the air has a chill to it and a hot mug of hot chocolate is a must-have!
And I found the coolest new wedding favor that is absolutely a must-have for your fall or winter wedding – hot chocolate sticks.
These super fun favors come in three flavors Read More
