Weddings call for a lot of details to be planned. Amid the flurry of fancy clothes, invitations, seating plans, rings, vows and flowers, it’s easy to overlook the cake table. If you’re saying ‘Cake table?’ like it didn’t occur to you that your caterers would do anything but plop your designer cake down next to the other desserts, read on to find out the importance of the cake table – and how you can make it a focal point for your entire reception.

Decorating the Cake Table

You may not realize it, but the wedding cake will be ogled nearly as much as the bride’s dress – and everyone wants a photo op near the cake table. There is much more you can do than leave the table plain white. The key to making the cake table work with your other décor is to use your overall wedding theme as a guide. Here are some tips to a beautiful cake table:

  • Don’t use a table at all! Place your wedding cake on a stand that works with your wedding theme. For example, for a wedding held at a winery, you could place the cake on a wooden cask; for a country or farm wedding, put the cake on a wagon.
  • Lay the table with a tablecloth that incorporates your wedding colours – whatever the pattern, the colours must be an exact match to your wedding colours. You can have lots of fun with fabric here – damask, lace, tulle, silk, velvet, the textural possibilities are endless.
  • Decorate the wedding cake table with flower petals, flowers, or greenery. One money-saving tip is to transfer some of the flowers used in the ceremony, like the aisle runners or urn flowers, for instance, to bedeck the cake table later.
  • Use elegant food items, like candied almonds in fine china bowls, or sugared fruits such as lemons, pears or berries, to festoon the cake table.
  • Photo collages make a nice backdrop for the cake; try a large, black and white print of the bride and groom, or various photos of the bride’s family (see photo courtesy of com)
  • Work with your wedding theme, using items that complement it. For example, for a beach wedding, you could incorporate shells or coral.

Tips for the Most Beautiful Wedding Cake Table

Following these tips will ensure your cake table steals the show at your wedding! It’ll be so nice, your photographer might just decide to go into food photography as a new career.

  1. Choose a solid foundation. Make sure the cake table is stable, can hold a lot of weight, and won’t topple over if someone accidentally leans on it.
  2. Keep the cake table out of the elements; direct sunlight, for example, can melt the icing. So can candles for that matter, so be careful how you decorate.
  3. If you have a non-traditional wedding cake – such as cupcakes, or several cakes that don’t stack on top of one another – elevate them above one another, on cake stands or fabric-draped, sturdy boxes of different heights, for visual appeal.
  4. Consider a backdrop for the cake table that matches your overall theme. Backdrops can be created with anything from balloons to lights to plants or flowers; just make sure they don’t completely steal the show from the cake itself.
