Makeover Monday: Make it your own-"Cake on Display"

Pin It

The wedding cake is the most important, edible, part of the wedding decor. Some guests will even say it is what they remember most (visually) about your wedding. So, how you display your cake can have far more of an impact than you might think. You can get a rich look on a budget, or even for free, by using items from your home or family that have special meaning, or that just go considerably well with your color scheme or theme.

On item you may have is a vanity. Vanities come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles. It has plenty of room for your cake as well, as any smaller desserts you may want to include. Another fun option is a wooden ladder. It can cross over into multiple styles of weddings from rustic to shabby chic, and adds layers and dimension to your display. Another way to go, if you are up for treasure hunting, would be with an actual glass bakery display. If you are having an outdoor reception, this is a fun way to keep your cake safe from the elements until you are ready to cut the cake.

Other fun options might include book shelves, rolling carts, crates, mirrors, wardrobes, etc... You can even enhance the look of the larger pieces of furniture by adding different cake stands, glass covers, platters, and more to give your display a layered and unique look. Go on a treasure hunt in and around your home, no matter the size, shape, or style of your cake, you might be surprised at what you can come up with for displaying the "sweetest" part of your wedding.
