So yes, this is a “pretty post” but there is something “wedding” related that brides can take away from this. I wanted to see what it would look like to use a CAKE STAND as the foundation for a centerpiece! Decorative cake stands come in all shapes and sizes. We used this stand in our wedding to hold our smaller cakes… you can view those details HERE! It’s actually not a bad idea! I like the way the stand elevates the florals and sets them off. So if your centerpieces just aren’t cutting it, maybe you need to add a little foundation underneath to make it stand out! This stand was bought from Homegoods (aka HEAVEN) and I believe it was 11.99 or something close to that.
I’m sure you’re thinking, “Well Katelyn if I have 20 tables, I can’t spend 11.99 20 times!!) That’s a valid point. I really encourage brides out there to have different centerpieces. Have a mixture of LARGE, MEDIUM and SMALL centerpiece ideas! The LARGE centerpiece should be taller, add height to the room and include your BEST florals, then the MEDIUM tables can be a smaller display (maybe two small containers of florals on a book) and then the SMALL tables are super simple (one floral container and a few votives). So! If you wanted to use this cake stand idea but couldn’t afford it to be on ALL of your tables, just have 5 LARGE tables and incorporate them in there. It’s actually more interesting for a photographer to have different centerpieces of all sizes on the tables. We can shoot all three styles from different angles and make your reception look like detail overload!!! Just a little inside tip for ya:) Well I have things to do! Enjoy this little “pretty” post!
