Brides: are you serving cupcakes at your wedding? Bored of the same old display? Want to cross “centerpieces” AND “cake” off your to-do list at the same time? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve heard of the cupcake in a jar – heck, we’ve even seen cupcakes on candlesticks – but a DIY cupcake bouquet is a fresh + fun idea. Instead of displaying cupcakes on the same old tray or tower, display them in a pot instead! These rose-frosting-topped cupcake bouquets are perfect for spring and summer weddings, bridal showers, and parties, and they double as your centerpiece, too. Plus, with Mother’s Day around the corner, you have no excuse but to whip up a batch of cupcakes this weekend and give ‘em to your mom. (And, it’s EASY! Even I could make ‘em, which is saying a lot. I’m no baker.) Besides, do you know anyone who would turn down a bouquet of cupcakes? Me either. So, grab your favorite cupcake mix, delicious frosting, some decorative cupcake wrappers, and a few other easy-to-find supplies and prepare to be inspired! Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the page for full step-by-step tutorials. Enjoy!

Good Morning, loves! Today, we’re diving into the whimsical collection of vintage wedding cake stands by our friend Lisa Marie of High Tea for Alice. Lisa Marie creates some of the most incredible vintage wedding cake stands ever – and, she’s a total sweetheart. It’s no surprise, then, that her cake stands fly off the shelves – figuratively speaking, of course, as this china is quite delicate – and brides become regular clients even after the big day. If you’re planning a vintage wedding and want to add the perfect touch, consider one of these vintage wedding cake stands for your big day. Use as a dessert-topped centerpiece for each table, display two or three on your cake table as a cupcake holder, or use as a display piece. After the wedding, gift remaining stands to loved ones as a keepsake or display in your home: it even makes an elegant jewelry stand. Read on to see some of our favorite vintage wedding cake stands we know you’ll love…

If you’re planning a nature-inspired wedding or bridal shower, you’ll love these green-inspired DIY sprout cupcakes! To make them at home, simply bake up a batch of miniature-sized chocolate cupcakes – hold the frosting – and add these sweet sugary sprout cupcake toppers by Mimicafe Union. These cupcakes look like tiny little (edible) sprouts, which are made from fondant. You can also order the cupcakes with the terra cotta pots for easy “planting”. Add a thank you tag and guests can take these DIY sprout cupcakes to go! Take a closer look…
DIY Sprout Cupcakes
Each edible “sprout” cupcake topper measures 1.5″ in diameter.

We’ve always loved the adorable cake stands at Jeanette Zeis Ceramics but today we have a new favorite: personalized wedding cake stands! These charming cake stands are handmade with the bride and groom’s name on the side along with the wedding date or special message. Don’t borrow a cake stand or toss away a cardboard option; instead, reuse one of these cake stands as home as decor and to display cakes after the wedding day and happily ever after.

To register or not to register for china? That is the question. When I (Emma here!) planned my wedding, I did not register for china. While china is quite lovely, I just couldn’t justify asking guests to pay for such an extravagant gift I knew I wouldn’t use – or, I’d be scared to use for risk of breaking – on a regular basis. That’s why we love this brilliant idea by High Tea for Alice. Now, you can have your china… and use it, too! Read on to find out more…

Our newest obsession? Cupcakes on candlesticks! This is quite possibly the cutest way to display wedding cupcakes. If you don’t have a hundred candlesticks – one for every guest (and, understandably so) – use the candlesticks exclusively for the bride and groom or the head table. Isn’t this such a cute idea?

We’ve mentioned previously how we’re mad about chevron, and this chevron cake stand is no exception! Since this cake stand is smaller than traditional stands, it gives cupcakes proper showcasing to make them even cuter (as if that was even possible). We think this is an ideal cake stand for mini cakes or fanciful cupcakes for the bridal party. Don’t forget the pretty cupcake wrappers!

Spotted: Scrumptiously sweet mini cupcakes in flower pots! This is such a clever idea for a garden wedding or bridal shower with a floral theme. Look for mini flower pots at local craft stores, add mini cupcakes, and top with a rosette frosted top. Lovely! We especially love how these are miniature (I swear, edibles are even 10x cuter in a miniature form) for bite-sized charm.

The sweetest things come in the smallest packages… this monogram mini wedding cake is no exception! Why is it that everything in a miniature is 10000x cuter? The mini wedding cake offers a wide variety of uses and are a welcomed addition to any wedding decor. The mini cakes can be placed on tiered stands as centerpieces, in lieu of cupcakes or slices of traditional wedding cake, or wrapped up in pretty boxes and tagged as bridal shower favors. We like the monogram for an added personal touch and the versatility of the icing color to suit your taste (no pun intended). Spotted here.
