fern & woodland inspired cake

One of my favorite wedding cakes is this fern and woodland inspired cake that writer and editor, Celia Barbour had at her wedding on Squam Lake in New Hampshire. The cake is made of smooth buttercream-frosted tiers. Buttercream piped ferns, real acorns and oak leaves adorn the layers.

Many printing companies can add almost any icon of your choice to tie all your details of your wedding together. Pictured below is an example of a fern invitation from minted.com. You could also use the icon on matchbooks, napkins and programs. Ferns and woodland elements (such as moss, leaves and acorns)  could also make wonderful accents to centerpieces, the seating card table and guest book area. Of course these are perfect elements for an outdoor wedding, country wedding, a wedding at home or a more casual type of wedding. These accents might not fit as well inside a hotel or very formal venue.
