DIY and Inspiration Part Two

Here’s part two of the blog’s DIY and Inspiration Series. Awhile back I wrote about how to set up a dining table and with a black and gold colour palette. This time, I will feature a video on how to set up a cake table with the same design and colour palette in mind. This serves as a guide for the basics as the colour choice is ultimately yours.

This video was done in collaboration with Design + Craft, Nadine’s Bakeshop – she bakes ridiculously delicious and detailed cakes, ZebraStar – a videographer and photographer duo, and Ink Scribbler – she is a calligraphy artist who makes amazing designs for a variety of occasions!

Be sure to check out the video here and I’m sure you’ll get to steal an idea or two!

Top 7 Wedding Cake Designs + Cake Toppers

Whether you love sweets or not, a cake is definitely in order when you’re going to wed. More than just dessert, the tradition of the wedding cake means so much more. I always find that the beautiful cakes are those that are not over-decorated. Instead, a cake that is tastefully done and ties well with your design concept will naturally stand out.

It’s one of those things most photographed on your wedding day! So be sure it also reflects your personalities.

Inspiration: Lihi Hod Bridal 2013

How come I’ve only learned about Lihi Hod this year? In case you haven’t read about her work, she’s a designer based in Israel and after design school, she interned in Dior with John Galliano. Fast forward to this year, her Bridal 2013 Collection has “romantic” sewn in every thread of her design pieces, with a side stitch that reads, “sultry”.  I’m loving her collection at the moment. Don’t you agree?
