Rustic woodsy cupcake table display how to

Happy Friday, y'all!

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite aspects of our rustic wedding. I envisioned a woodsy cupcake display with layers of wood pieces, while incorporating vintage textiles, mismatched cake stands and dripping with twinkle lights. Swoon!

After trying to talk the boys into scouring the ranch for tree stumps and cut discs for me(and a few confused looks..."you want to do what?"), we had a rough layout of the display.

It was coming along! We used an 8 ft. table and found pieces of oak, cedar and sycamore. The key was having many levels to create depth, and using glass and metal cake stands to create a contrast.

For the big day, we draped a cream linen table cloth with a vintage lace tablecloth, then added the pieces of wood. (I put all the wood pieces in a large bin and taped a photo on top for my day-of wedding helpers) I intertwined a small strip of white Christmas lights and covered it with vintage lace curtains and doilies. I also scattered some bridal portraits throughout.

The final result was better than I had even pictured and was a huge hit!

I had three flavors and divided them in sections using little baby frames. All that texture was just heavenly!  And the die for. We have a "his & hers" waiting for us in the freezer...Don't know if it will last til the fall because they were too yummy!

Have a fabulous weekend!
