You are going to spend a lot of time designing your wedding cake, don’t forget to finish the look of your wedding centerpiece. You want the table that it is going to be sitting on to be part of the completed design, if possible, all the way to the floor! Covering your cake table with a decorative tablecloth(s) or overlay, even allowing it to “puddle” onto the floor, is a beautiful way of doing this.
The top of the table, around your cake or cake stand, can be decorated with an array of things. Fresh flowers and petals are always an option, but you can also use candles, crystals, lights, etc.
For a wedding with a theme include something in the cake table decorations. For a beach theme, add real seashells and sugar “sand”. I have even added a sugar ‘stick” and a heart & initals drawn in the sand. Winter wedding cakes can be finished with fake snow and crystals. For the rustic look you can use a tree trunk or crate for your cake stand and add burlap to the top of the table.
Whatever you decide your wedding cake is going to look like remember to include your cake table in the design. Your guests will remember it and talk about it to their friends.
