Kari and Mike

Sometimes the tiniest detail can turn into an amazing design scheme. This one started with the table linens. Kari didn't like the traditional white or Ivory linens that she'd seen at other weddings, so she chose a beautiful metallic taupe linen for her reception tables. That, coupled with the black bridesmaids dresses and touches of emerald green intrigued me enough to show her invitation options even though she had already chosen her wedding invitations (chosen, but not ordered). Once we switched the paper to a metallic taupe, letterpressed in black, and coordinated the menu cards, table number cards, etc. she was all ours!


The best part...I'd been wanting to make a cake in that same color scheme for several months. I'd seen one by a company in Hawaii, and loved it. So the chance to copy Kari and Mike's invitation motif in black, onto a metallic taupe cake was one I didn't want to miss. Lucky for me, they let me play, so I added a vintage-looking pinstripe to the other tiers to really play off of the modern stacking that they chose.


Add a few emerald green rhinestones, and their Fleur de Lis monogram, and there you have it. The most drop-dead glamourous cake I've done in some time!
