Anyone out there decorating the complimentary cake?

Recommended Posts

Wow, $25 is actually a reasonable price. I find any of the floral decor at my resort is super expensive, but it may be worth asking. Thanks for the tip!

Since we're trying to keep things on low budget, we decided to go with the flowers.  I think it's worth asking the hotel.

I've seen a lot of brides decorate the area around the cake too.  That might help with a small cake since you can only put so much on it.  You could add a table runner (maybe an extra chair sash?) for some color or some shells/starfish and some tea lights.  Just a few ideas.  I'm sure you could come up with more!

 

I agree that $25 doesn't sound too bad after all the flower prices I've seen from Secrets.  Of course we are only talking about a few flowers.

Good idea, maybe I'll have to search for some table decor images.

I was wondering what I could do w/ our cake too.  We will probably have 10-12 guests so our cake will be small too.  I agree...I would hate for it to look sad by itself on the table!

You could also bring something with you as a cake stand.. it will make your cake appear bigger and add some color.. Something like a funky hat box (which you can also pack stuff in so it wont take up all the much room) or something that callapses that will be easy to pack

I have a cake for 30 and got a beach topper and think about bringing beige chocolate seashells and graham crakers to crumble...i saw a cake with that and it was so pretty.  You can also add ribbon to make it look more fancy.
