Before I planned a wedding, I knew next-to-nothing about them. So, when I went to my friend Krista’s wedding in 2008, I thought her centerpieces were cute—but I didn’t realize how completely genius they were until later.
On every table, Krista had a small cake instead of a floral centerpiece. Each cake was decorated differently, adding visual interest, and had a notecard sticking out the top with the table number. At the end of the meal, the servers removed the cakes from each table, cut them, and invited guests to choose a slice from one of four flavors.
I love this idea, because it saves money and resources—and still looks great.
Imagine the possibilities: you could borrow cake plates from friends, DIY your own from plates, candle sticks and wine glasses, or start a new collection of vintage pieces.
