Taylor + Richard: A Rustic Red Beach Wedding by Keepsake Memories Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

There’s something so warm and inviting about a Fall wedding, don’t you think? Today we’re smitten with Taylor and Richard’s October North Carolina nuptials, particularly because of the creative red centerpieces and the fact that the bride made her fascinator herself. Special thanks to Keepsake Memories Photography for sending over the photos! We think they capture the unique oceanside ceremony perfectly.

DIY Wednesday: Metallic Fringe Dessert Toppers
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By: Victoria Hudgins

Bring a bit of glitz and glam to your wedding day with these metallic fringe toppers. Use them to top cakes, desserts or cupcakes for a dash of metallic flair.

This project was made using metallic streamers which you can find here.

Step One. Cut small slits up the side of the metallic streamers leaving 1 cm at the top of each slit. Work in small sections about 2 inches wide.

Step Two. Line the sections up in a row and cut each successive section about 1/4 inch shorter than the one before it.

Step Three. Place a wooden skewer at the end of the smallest section and begin rolling the streamers around the skewer until it reaches the end. Finish with a small piece of tape.

Enjoy the glitz and glimmer of the metallic toppers.

DIY Wednesday: Votive Cup Mini Cakes!
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself, Wedding Cakes

By: Victoria Hudgins

Everything this season seems to be getting smaller and I love the idea of serving individual desserts at a reception. How about votive cup mini cakes?! These votive-cup-baked cakes take the term cupcake to a whole new level. They make splendid plate toppers or are cute for a dessert bar display. Interspersing them with actual candlelight votives can be a festive touch. If you’re wanting a unique dessert option, they’re a bit different… more modern and sophisticated, if you will… than the original cupcake!


Step One. Make your favorite cake recipe just as your normally would.

Step Two. Collect small glass votive holders and wash them up.

Step Three. Spray each cup with a cooking spray (or dust with flour) and fill 2/3 of the way full with cake batter.

Step Four. Place 12 cups per baking pan; bake according to the recipe. Be sure to check on the cakes at about half the baking time (it will take a bit less time then a normal cake takes to cook).

Step Five. Let your mini cakes cool fully.  

You can frost your cakes and serve them inside the votive cups, or you can turn them upside down to remove from the glass.  Top your mini cakes with a tiny fork for a dainty treat!
