Felt Wedding Cakes

Inspired by watching her daughter enjoy her orange sherbet ice cream on a beautiful sunny Seattle day, Angela of ViviansKitchen at Etsy conjured up many fond memories of being a kid and created this amazing Felt Orange Mango And Peach Striped Sherbet Cake. Each wedding cake reproduction is made from polyfoam and 80% wool felt that is hand dyed and meticulously stitched to resemble your wedding cake or mine, packaged safely in its own bakery box.

Fresh Fruit Wedding Centerpieces

Fresh fruit wedding centerpieces using whole or sliced fruit...you don't have to be the CEO of Edible Arrangements to create them.  Start with large juicy Valencia oranges, sinfully juicy and delicious, only two for a dollar at your local market's produce section. Stack a colorful arrangement of oranges, lemons and limes to make a festive pyramid centerpiece or slice them and let them swim fragrantly around your floating candles. You can also insert a smaller vase inside a larger glass one for flowers and slide the slices between the two, or use florist's foam to insert your flowers stems into and then slide the slices between the foam and the glass.
