Today is my most favorite holiday of the year – Halloween!
And if you’re lucky enough to choose October 31 as your wedding day (oh what fun!) the sky is pretty much the limit when it comes to adding some holiday fun to your reception.
I’ve seen brides host a costume-party themed reception or use Halloween decor as part of the reception. Read More
One of the classic signs of fall here in my hometown is a yard full of acorns – and squirrels hustling all season to bury those acorns in my yard for the winter.
Which means, acorns are really a classic fall item.
And if you’re having a fall wedding with a fall-themed reception these cute gold-dipped acorn measuring spoons would make a great wedding favor for your guests. Read More
If there’s one thing I love more than wedding cake, it has to be ice cream.
So, when I saw this ice cream wedding cake it was as if all my dessert dreams came true!
I love the idea of non-traditional wedding cakes – whether we’re talking naked wedding cakes or cakes made out of rounds of cheese. The crazier the better I say. Read More
I love cupcakes. And if given the chance I’d serve cupcakes at every celebration I host, including a wedding reception.
Sadly, when I was married all those years ago the wedding cupcake trend hadn’t happened yet.
But now that cupcakes are all the rage, it is the perfect time to add some cupcake fun to your reception dessert table!
I love the idea in today’s featured cake photo – a small wedding cake (for the newlyweds) and cupcakes for all the guests. You could have so much fun with this concept – think of the flavors you could have with those cupcakes!
You could choose seasonal flavors, classics like white and chocolate, and even fan favorites like red velvet (my all-time favorite cake flavor).
And to add even more deliciousness to the party, make sure you have cute take-home boxes and enough cupcakes for you guests to take one for the road.
You’ll find this cupcake and cake tower here.
Recently, I’ve become obsessed with drinking hot tea at night. I bought a small tea pot, several kinds of tea, and every night I make myself a steaming cuppa tea with milk.
Perhaps this is why I’m loving today’s wedding favor idea – a heart-shaped tea infuser.
This favor would be perfect in a welcome bag for out-of-town guests, paired with some good local tea (or even your favorite flavor of tea). Read More
Fall is definitely here and that means it is a perfect time to check out some rustic wedding cakes!
I love the idea of a cake that represents the season of your nuptials and rustic seems to go hand-in-hand with everything fall!
Today’s cake happens to be a naked wedding cake – a trend I’m starting to love more and more – and it has a special touch thanks to some jam filling. Read More
I love everything about fall – even the fact that, where I live fall means you pull out all the summer flowers. This is OK with me because I just replace them with colorful mums!
I love the dark hues of some of the mums and other fall-ish blooms that are perfect for this time of year.
And I also love seeing floral wedding cakes deep in the falls season. Just because the temps are cooler and the leaves are turning doesn’t mean you can’t add some colorful blooms to your wedding cake! Read More
Of the best things about fall is the annual visit to the local pumpkin farm. We get to pick our own pumpkins out in the fields and then it’s time to buy pumpkin doughnuts.
There’s no denying that the pumpkins are the stars of the season.
And so, if you’re planning a fall wedding it only makes sense to add some pumpkins to your decor or even to the dessert table. Read More
If I had the chance to do my wedding cake over, I’m pretty sure there would be chocolate involved. As in, I’d have an all chocolate wedding cake.
I love the idea of bucking a trend – white wedding cakes – and serving something you really love. Like chocolate cake. Or at least cake with chocolate icing. Read More
