Yesterday evening was Zach & Caitie’s wedding & the reception was at Tartan Park Golf Course. It was so gorgeous that I had to beat the guests to the club house and sneak some pictures of décor and the beautiful color pallet of Coral, Peach, Silver and Charcoal before everyone started arriving.
I was honored to help Caitie out by making her cupcakes, cake, and of course lugging along my infamous ever-morphing cupcake stand. (Shout out to my Mom for helping with the set-up and take-down of that beast.) The massive cupcake stand was originally built by my Dad for my best friend’s wedding back in 2010, but since then I have had some opportunities to use it & re-decorate it for weddings of friends or family a couple times a year. Other than that, its a big dust collector in my parents’ garage!
I’ll admit I was pretty nervous about the cake because I’m no cake decorator and I consider myself to be better at cupcakes than cake but Caitie is pretty laid back and gave me free reign with the cake as long as I incorporated her wedding colors. I’ve always liked the “rose cake” you see on Pinterest all the time and the technique is pretty easy so I did that with an artificial flower & some ribbon. Here are some pictures of the awesome color pallet:
