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.

You may have seen our blog post about 10 ways you can incorporate moss into your wedding, but we love the thought of using it as inspiration for your backdrop.

Woodland Wedding Cakes

Naked wedding cakes have been a firm favourite with brides for a few years now, and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere! They’re a perfect choice for an outdoor or woodland wedding. Adorn with delicious fruits such as blackberries, strawberries and figs for an organic, natural style. Stand a naked cake on a tree slice for a true forest feel.

Why not scatter a few twigs and leaves on the stand for a subtle nod towards your woodland wedding theme? This is a really budget-friendly décor idea that will seriously suit your naked wedding cake. It’s best for naked cakes to be made either on or just before the big day, so that the sponge and toppings are fresh.

When it comes to woodland wedding cakes, I love the idea of using botanical inspired elements. A single tier with textured white icing looks fabulous decorated with wild ferns and forest foliage. You can easily make this style of wedding cake perfect for each season. If you’re having a Winter do, add a few pinecones and holly for a extra greenery. Planning a Summer soiree? Simply add a few blooms to the white icing for a subtle pop of colour.

If your wedding cake maker is able to do so, go all out with a bark-looking iced wedding cake. You can create a real masterpiece with textured wooden icing decorated with iced mushrooms, flowers and greenery.

Let’s not forget the impact cake toppers can have on your wedding cake. Go down the enchanted forest theme with nature-inspired cake toppers, such as deer or antlers. They’ll create a beautiful silhouette for your wedding cake and they’ll look magical.

If you’ve just got a simple wedding cake, it doesn’t mean it can be woodland themed. It’s how you dress your dessert table! Decorate your table with trailing foliage and sprigs of rosemary and theme for a touch of rustic elegance. As mentioned earlier, tree slices as wedding cake stands are perfect for this theme and is guaranteed to look beautiful. Delicate succulents and lots of greenery will create a beautiful ethereal effect surrounding a whimsical masterpiece.
