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.
