HWB Hearts: Crystal Wedding EVERYTHING

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Here’s the thing about crystals: No matter how simply they’re used in wedding décor, once you get them next to a light source—whether fixture or flame—they just can’t help but sparkle. And that little flash and glow is what makes an occasion feel…special. There’s no occasion more special than your wedding. And no better way to make it shine than with twinkling crystal elements. Like these.

HWB Hearts: Dessert Pops to Die For

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Behold the dessert pop. It’s cake—or pie, or cookies, or “toaster pastry,” or cheesecake, or cupcakes, or French macaroons—on a stick. The color and decoration options are pretty much endless. Ditto the presentation possibilities. It’s a bite Heaven (or two or three or FIVE, depending on how long you linger at the dessert display, and how many pops you pop into your pie hole). Everyone goes nuts when they see them. And you can even have yours in the shape of miniature tiered white wedding cakes, if that’s your thing. In a mouthful: It’s wedding dessert perfection. Behold!

Lace Wedding Cakes

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Lace has always been a bridal staple. But we’ve never seen this delicate, intricate material more coveted by brides than it is in this very moment. Let’s step away from gowns for a moment, though, and take a look at how lace is making its mark on…CAKES! You may remember Houston bride Kaleigh’s gorgeous Who Made the Cake cake, inspired by the bride’s lovely lace bolero. Well, we’ve got a few more lace-inspired cakes that are so pretty, it’s hard to believe they’re confections, not couture!

Sweet Tooth: Little White Wedding Bites

Vintage Dessert Displays

We know a gal who swears that as a toddler she went through a phase where she’d only eat white food. Cottage cheese, rice, white bread. That sort of thing. Now that she’s all grown up, our formerly finicky friend has expanded her culinary tastes exponentially. Thank goodness, too. Because white food is blah food.

Except when it’s dessert. Wedding dessert, in particular. Picture a post-meal sweets spread, filled with exquisite goodies in different wedding-white shades from snow to cream, beckoning guests to dig in. Pretty, right? Especially when displayed on lovely, vintage-inspired tiered dessert trays and cake plates like these. Have your cake…and eat lots of other yummy desserts, too, we say!
