How To Plan your Wedding Table Centerpieces
One of the first decisions you should consider before choosing your wedding table centerpieces or even developing your wedding themes and ideas is the wedding cake. We live in a culture that focuses our celebrations around food and the wedding cake is the one element of the wedding reception that is adorned almost as beautifully as the bride. When you picture your ideal cake, do you have an image of a tall classic romantic cake with real candied flowers, or are you envisioning a more modern array of beautiful cupcake display stands with your wedding toppers on the top two cupcakes for the bride and groom? When you know what direction you would like to go with your wedding cake, then flowing an element of the cake's colors, flowers, style,or even an element within the wedding cakes cake stands into your wedding table centerpieces will be natural and fun.
The traditional wedding cake is always in fashion, and as always, the styles are limited only by your imagination and that of your caterer. If you choose a cake with a simple stand, there are still ways to create
themed weddings ideas
for table centerpieces on your buffet table. Let's say you choose the theme of two swans carrying one ribbon. The modern wedding swan sculptures could be filled with fruit or flowers and the wedding cake toppers could be two swans with the ribbon cascading down the sides of the cake surrounded by a spray of flowers that overflows romantically to the table. The theme is easily continued throughout the dining area. The ribbon from the centerpiece swans could be brought to the ceiling and cascade from table to table, symbolic of all the lives that are connected by this marriage. The ribbon could be lit with white Christmas lights, or have a flame-less tea-light candle with the wedding colors placed on where it touches the dining tables.
Cupcake wedding cakes are a new wedding trend and lend themselves beautifully to the modern wedding. Cupcake towers, especially those that are creatively and elegantly sculpted can be a springboard toward an exciting theme. Cupcakes lend themselves well to individual favors and you will know exactly
how many servings of cake will be available for your guests.Cupcakes come in all sizes, from mini to extra large and there is something irresistible about an individually frosted miniature work of art that is the cupcake. Now picture a colorful array of them forming the wings of butterflies; this flows seamlessly into other butterfly wedding table centerpieces and decorations. Perhaps you are considering something tall and modern, but simple and romantic, like a silver cupcake holder that brings to mind simple elegance. One of the things we consider when developing new modern wedding centerpieces is versatility.
Our sculpture designs provide a framework that may be customized, by you, your caterer, your florist, and your decorators to match an endless variety of wedding themes, and atmospheres. If you are planning a wedding with a unique theme that can't find a perfect match with our current selection of modern wedding sculptures, we are excited to work with you to develop a custom concept. We love working with florists and caterers too. Great art makes great artists and it is the combining of creative ideas where great artistic surprises delight our senses and frame the day where love is the true wedding centerpiece.
