Show Your Colors

Striped chocolate wraps on a three-layer wedding cake rendered in shades of olive green and cream create a modern look. Each cake layer is wrapped with a band of slightly taller chocolate, creating a lip in which to nestle and drape roses cut and shaped from striped chocolate.

Make a Modern Touch

Inexpensive and easy-to-make chrysanthemum balls are eye-catching floral touches for the ceremony and reception. Make chrysanthemum balls by wrapping 3-inch foam balls with chicken wire and inserting the flower stems.

Be Bold with Flowers

Create a Personal Touch
