Beach and Bridal™ Shell bouquets centerpieces and cakes for the beach bride

I recently attended a wedding fair where this beautiful giant giga shell centerpiece was on display.


It was so beautiful filled with orchids, succulents and moss tucked in here and there. I kept taking photos of it.


I don't think there wasn't an attendee that didn't oh and ah over it.


It was sitting in front of this champagne, cream and latte colored rose and shell bouquet accented by lush tropical leaves and a wide simple satin bow.


The bouquet was sitting canted in a tissue filled box so the back and underside could be seen. So if you are wondering what the white is it is simply the tissue paper from the box it was in.


Gorgeous!


Three tier fondant cake accented with chocolate shells by Shore Chic
where you can order the shells alone for favors.


Crushed graham crackers mimic beach sand.


Simple....


and of course I had to take photos of my hand stamped wedding silverware with it.

Another place that makes beautiful cakes and if you are in
Massachusetts I highly recommended Delicious Desserts
Where cakes are works of art.


Obviously, I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Lisa Raffael's work has earned her being a three time medalist on the Food Network's cake challenge.
and was also on TLC's Fabulous Cakes


Even if you aren't in Massachusetts you can get these fabulous cake truffles shipped to your door.


Wonderful as wedding favors in these beachy little boxes.


Until next time....

how clever, I will have to remember that crush graham crackers for sand... I'm not sure if we are having a traditional cake. we thought about doing pies since my fiancé is a southern boy at heart... we shall see but you have given me some inspiration here. :)
