FAB Winter Wedding Cakes

Today is an “eye-candy” kind of post…I’ve been looking at winter wedding ideas lately, and found some FAB cakes I just had to share.

From Martha Stewart, a blue and white wedding cake with pine cones creation.  Click through to see how the latter are embellished as well as some additional winter wedding ideas.

From Wedding Wire, a stunning white cake with pine cones and roses:

Also from Wedding Wire, a diva-tastic wedding cake design with rhinestones and ribbon.  Lots of other great diva cakes within the post.

And from Bakerella, a DIY tutorial on how to make a lovely, lovely heart covered wedding cake.  I think this would be perfect for ANY wedding, but most especially for those Valentine’s Day weddings coming up…

And a link to Marzipan, with a tutorial on how to make marshmallow fondant and poured fondant.. these are EASY tutorials, and perfect for something like the cake listed above… or the cupcake shown below!

 

Winter Decor – Whimsy Wednesday…

I don’t know about you, but I’m just a tiny bit tired this week!  Lots of holiday happenings and goings and comings and family visits and get-togethers and…and…  well, YOU know!  So, today’s post is a bit light on the DIY and a bit heavy on the “look what I’ve found, isn’t it lovely and whimsical?”  Hope that’s ok with you!

From the Blue Eyed Yonder blog, an entire post dedicated to whimsy winter decorations:

From Half Baked, the Cake Blog, a fun and whimsical white winter cake with blue and gold accents.  (And be sure to click on over to the post, there are several OTHER cake designs posted too!)

From Green Wedding Shoes,  absolutely fabulous Candy Land party ideas, this time in the guise of a  Rehearsal Dinner:

ALSO from Green Wedding shoes, a lovely “Snowed In” wedding:

You know, I can’t post without at least ONE DIY link… here’s a link to a fab Winter Wonderland Centerpiece post, from CleverlyInspired:

And, from our Diva Entertains shop, Winter Wonderland Wedding Favor boxes:

What wonderful whimsy have you found lately??

Thrifty Thursday – Glam Winter Weddings

A few great finds for you today!  They involve glam… winter weddings… and inexpensive DIY!

First up, a gorgeous Christmas wreath, made from faux jewels.  It would be lovely to have these wreaths adorning the walls of a wedding rehearsal, OR hanging pew decorations, or even laying flat as centerpieces on reception tables.  Click HERE to read the description.

Secondly, a wonderful keepsake or even wedding gift for the winter bride.  A sentimental wedding invitation ornament!  Click HERE for a great DIY blog post on how to make them:

A very simple way, but absolutely GORGEOUS way to illuminate the aisle… varying heights of candles and rose petals… photo by Aaron Delesie:

I found this DIY tutorial on gift wrap, and instantly thought glam FAVOR boxes, or bridesmaid gifts! Click HERE to read the tutorial.  Aren’t these beautiful for a cream and white wedding or bridal shower?

And these shoes have absolutely NOTHING to do with DIY, but I saw them, and just had to share the photo, because I loved the idea:

Something BLUE!
