I got Jason' grooms cake from Rossmoor Pastries as well and it was delicious! Its didn't come out exactly as planned but still a fun surprise for him and our bridal party- a perfect treat after dinner! On a side note- I know they can be expensive so I opted to have a smaller cake made and kept it one tier and a one hour labor so it was cheaper then the other estimates!
It is an off-road tire and I just stuck racing flags on top !
Jason's an off-road enthusiast and photographer so I thought it was a must :)
We even got some practice cutting a cake together :)
Jason and I made all of our placecards the week of the wedding- all material was puchased at Paper-Source!
We cut the red metalic paper and scored them in half using the tool from Paper-Source ($4) then Jason printed sheets of guest names with their table and I just cut and taped down using double sided tape. We used the same two fonts we were using throughout the wedding- Copperplate and Scriptina...
We named our tables in Italian to go with our theme- they are different 'relationship' words.... (We originally got the idea from the wedding cakes that have words all over it- used the same concept with the table names and just translated them into Italian!)
We framed them in 5 X 7 black frames from Michaels, and wrote the words on our meatllic paper from Paper-Source. We finished them off by adding our typical touch of damask for the border...
All supplies were purchased at Paper-Source. (Black Diagonal Fold Invite, Star-dream opal paper, red embossing glitter, Scroll & RSVP stamps, heating tool, and red Stardream Mars envelopes). I had the main invite, which I embossed a scroll stamp off the side and 3 inserts, in which I also embossed the RSVP stamp too. I loved the way they came out. MY DH helped me soooo much with these!
(we embossed RSVP too!)
