Two Tier Cakes: Terrific!

Let’s be honest…we all know it’s the big, multi-tiered wedding cakes that get all the press…all the Oooohs and Aaaaaahs! But, the truth is that many of our requests for wedding cakes are for two-tier cakes that still have a very special wedding feel to them.  We are so happy to create these lovely wedding cake for our amazing clients!

Here are a few of our two-tier favorites:

We added a glitzy, sparkling cake stand to this cake…giving it the feel of a third tier at fractions of the cost.

Adding a special design, in a metallic gold, makes the cake a true sparkler!

Succulents and eucalyptus greens are a favorite greenery used often by our brides. We love the natural and sweet look of this!

Bring the beach vibe to your two-tier cake, by adding the white starfish and blue ribbon, with yellow flowers to shine on your cake!

We are in Cabo so adding white chocolate shells is always fun!

Pink ombre is beautiful and romantic…and looks lovely with the ocean blue in the background.

Real Wedding: Meredith & PJ’s Baja Destination Wedding

291016MeredithPJ0038

Our last Real Wedding post for our Cabo Flowers & Cakes blog for the 2016 year is one of our favorites! Our clients, Meredith & PJ, had such a memorable wedding at Rancho Pescaderoand so much fun! They were all smiles and their playful spirits showed through in their flowers choices as well!

291016MeredithPJ0049

Meredith’s head wreath (a perfect fit with her loose braid) and floral bouquet were bright, colorful, whimsical and natural. She didn’t want anything sculpted or too big; she wanted flowers that fit with the stunning environment at their amazing wedding location, Rancho Pescadero.

291016MeredithPJ0069

Meredith & PJ’s flower girl (with petals in her purse…so cute!) modeled another boho-type head wreath.  We create our head wreaths with a special back enclosure so that each wreath fits each individual head perfectly! No bobby pins needed!

291016MeredithPJ0071

We love the way Meredith is holding her bouquet…she wanted a casual look with her bouquet as she walked down the aisle. Nothing too rehearsed looking…just a easy stroll to her beloved.

Table Decor - Meredith:PJ

The white paper Mexican flags hanging here are called “Papel Picado” here in Mexico. They are individually cut with beautiful and intricate designs, and are a popular addition to Mexican events. We carry them (in both plastic – more durable – and the traditional paper) and hang them as well. Make this a must-have for your Mexican wedding!291016MeredithPJ0278

Cake cutting time! After some heavy dancing (and a quick dip in the pool mid-reception), Meredith & PJ cut their simple 3-tier cake. Our name says it all: We are Cabo Flowers & Cakes, and cakes are our specialty as well! This one was, as one of the guests commented, “one of the best tasting wedding cakes ever!”

Cactus Cupcakes: Add some Baja to your wedding dessert table!

Cake, cupcake and succulents

Kyle & Lauren, like many of our brides & grooms, wanted to incorporate a bit of Baja into their Los Cabos wedding! What better way to do that than to include a cactus or two into their wedding cake design! They decided to  add some “cactus” cupcakes to their wedding cake.

cactus cupcakes

They are a popular request, our cactus cupcakes! We provide them for rehearsal dinners, as favors, as part of the wedding cake set-up…or just for fun parties!

Cake, cupcakes & edible succulents

We also can design succulent cupcakes (in the same family as a cactus cupcake, but with more of a succulent look.)

2016-04-17 13.55.32

There are all kinds of ways to play with this fun trend! (And, by the way, these are all completely edible. Our cake designer creates the “cacti”  and “succulents” out of fondant, candy bars, cookies, brown sugar, frosting and more.)

For this kind of cupcake fun & more…please contact Donna Gray @ caboflowersdfb@gmail.com.

 

 

 

 

Real Wedding: Rancho Pescadero – Crista & Patrice

Crista.and.Patrice.Wedding_0014-3

Meet Crista & Patrice and their lovely families (and friends). We are proud to be one of the exclusive floral providers at the amazing Rancho Pescadero, in El Pescadero, about an hour north of Cabo. We design the florals for almost all of their events! An eco-friendly boutique resort with a “namaste” vibe, the environment at Rancho (as the locals call it) is intimate and gorgeous!

Crista.and.Patrice.Wedding_0032

We created Crista’s bouquet to include colors that are familiar at Rancho…corals, and oranges, with subdued greens as well.  Crista loves big mums and those featured prominently (and beautifully) in her bouquets!Crista.and.Patrice.Wedding_0045 Crista.and.Patrice.Wedding_0050

Rancho Pescadero has just recently started offering a smaller wedding package (up to 14 guests) and so, with just 12 guests,  Crista had a bridal bouquet and one bridesmaid bouquet.  Both were lovely! And the smaller wedding was such a memorable experience for all involved!

Crista.and.Patrice.Wedding_0049

With one long table for all of her guests, we created a mix of florals in bud vases, cylinder candles and mercury gold votives, that glowed all night long!

Real Wedding: Keely & Jeff

What a pleasure it was to work with Keely & Jeff, and their wedding planner, Katie Thompson, of Dazzle ‘Em Event Design,  on their wedding florals!

FullSizeRenderWe first met the cute couple when they came in January of this year for a site tour and floral meeting . At this meeting, we had a great time playing with the flowers, with Keely (working together with our floral designers) coming up with the perfect way to arrange a lot of precious small vases on a rectangular wooden farm table.

The end result of that meeting? The amazing floral decor you’ll see below.

Ceremony location: Cabo del Sol Golf Clubhouse Beach. We created a simple arch, framing the crashing waves at this amazing beach venue.

When designing your Cabo wedding cake, one of the things we always want to talk about is: how will you top your cake? It’s an important question because your cake topper plays an important part of your wedding cake cutting celebration.

Your cake topper for your Cabo wedding is a perfect chance for any destination wedding bride to bring a bit of home with her and to make her mark on her wedding decor!  This bride and groom brought this cake topper with them, with H as the initial for their newly shared last name, and with a silhouette design of their beloved dog they’d left at home for the week-end. They made their wedding cake personal…for them!0750KJWPP

Real Wedding: Tracy & John at Esperanza Resort in Cabo

044_Cabo-Hotels-Esperanza-Cabo-Resort-TR

It’s been a year since we supplied the gorgeous flowers for this amazing wedding at Esperanza…and we still are in awe of the beauty of this couple and their Cabo wedding! (By the way, happy one-year anniversary, Tracy & John!)

010_Cabo-Hotels-Esperanza-Cabo-Resort-TR

Tulle is one of our favorites for a Cabo wedding dress, and this tulle veil encircling the bride’s bridal bouquet is so romantic! We loved the decor concept of all white with a slight touch of yellow!

050_Cabo-Hotels-Esperanza-Cabo-Resort-TR

With neutral colored bridesmaid dresses, the colors of the stone and the sand (such integral colors here in Cabo), the flowers truly helped these beauties stand out and shine at this Esperanza wedding! And while we often see a chuppah at an ocean-front Cabo wedding, we think these lush floral arrangements in clear vases on the white pedestals are truly wedding-perfection!  They allow the view to take center stage!

A close-up view of this stunning bridal bouquet:

012_Cabo-Hotels-Esperanza-Cabo-Resort-TR The yellow mini-roses are precious! A perfect blend of flowers and colors for this bouquet!

Congratulations, Tracy & John! It was such a pleasure to be a part of your very special and very beautiful day!
