15 Creative Wedding Cake Table Backdrops

We thought we’d start by incorporating one of the most anticipated wedding trends of 2017 – greenery. Wreaths adorned with wild greenery and foliage look striking hung behind your wedding cake. They’re also a wonderful choice if you love the thought of a botanical wedding theme. A job for your wedding florist, they can be hung from a wooden frame.

If you adore the thought of using greenery as part of your table backdrop, but want something a little more romantic, consider creating a cute heart-shaped garland instead. This will look super sweet behind your cake or dessert table, particularly if you’re planning a Valentine’s Day wedding. You could also create mini versions for your chair covers or favours.

A confetti bar is surprisingly simple and easy to style and it’s a wonderful way of adding to your venue decor. Plus, it gives you a chance to get creative and allows you to express your personality and wedding style. One of the best things about a wedding confetti bar is the fact that it can be designed to suit any theme and you can effortlessly make it unique.

Create A Wedding Confetti Bar For Your Guests

If you’re dreaming of a pretty vintage or country garden wedding theme, listen up! A quaint desk or table with an antique feel is the perfect base for your confetti bar. Use an old-fashioned sign, frame or chalkboard to let your guests know about your confetti bar, and stand it against the table. Fill vintage baskets with pretty petals and offer your guests cones adorned with lace detailing.
