Weddings Lookbook: What to Look for When Buying Unique Cake Displays

March 13, 2019

"Among the many considerations you will make when planning a party or celebration is how you’ll decorate the space that you hold the event in. You’ll want to make a visual impact with the décor that you choose. That way, the guests that you invite have something to remember the event by thanks to the pictures that they take and the thoughts that they share with others on social media. Here is what you need to look for when buying unique cake displays:"

"The most exquisite and intimate North Ridge Country Club wedding in Raleigh, North Carolina.  This one was for the books… everything was perfection.  The details were so lovely.  When the bride saw her wedding venue, she cried.  But that wasn’t what made the day extraordinary.  It was the love between Jessica and Charlie and all of their family and friends.  Everyone glowed.  It was an honor to be a part of it."
