Let’s take a minute and celebrate the most popular plant to now be a part of the Cabo wedding scene! It’s our little green friend…the succulent! It’s popping up everywhere… from rustic farm weddings to beachfront seaside weddings like we have here in our beautiful destination wedding location, Cabo San Lucas. And we at Cabo Flowers & Cakes couldn’t be happier!!!
Succulents grow as an individual bloom and are the perfect shade of a mellow, mild green. They add color and texture to any floral arrangement without stealing the glory from other beautiful blooms. They are hardy and long-lasting, and add a bit of fun too!
We love to add succulents to bouquets (bridal and bridesmaid), table centerpieces, as boutonnieres (not usually the whole bloom but just a snippet of one), and as mini arrangements perfect for a cocktail table or in a restroom.
Really, the only limit to what you can use a succulent for is your imagination or your budget.
As black and white themed weddings have become more popular (even at destination wedding locations like Cabo San Lucas), we’ve upped our game when it comes to cake decor. Black and white wedding cakes have become high-end and on-trend, and we here at Cabo Flowers & Cakes are specialist for this type of cake.
Here are some examples of how a black and white wedding cake stays traditional, elegant and yet unique. A few things to be aware of for a black and white Cabo wedding cake:
1. An expert cake designer, like we have on staff at Cabo Flowers & Cakes, must make sure your colors do not run! The black stays black, and the white stays white. This is the #1 consideration when creating a beauty like these cakes.
2. Keep it classy! One way to do this is to have more white than black on your wedding cake. This keeps your cake amazing, not scary.
3. Pull in the decor from your bridal attire and/or event decor. Black polka dots or stripes on your event linens? Pull that theme into your cake decor as well.
In the end, a black and white cake is a perfect way to pull together all of your black and white event decor.
Here in Cabo, the chuppah (also sometimes called a canopy) gets all the attention. With it’s four legs, and it’s beautiful draping…most of our brides start their wedding planning intent on a structure like this. But, we wanted to let everyone know…at Cabo Flowers and Cakes, we love arches and frames too.
What’s a frame? It’s basically a two-legged chuppah/canopy, and so we add this to the arch category as well. These ceremony structures are just as beautiful as many of the chuppahs and canopies we design (and they are more affordable). Here are a few to convince you, too:
Remember, in Cabo we are famous for our Arch. So…maybe your wedding ceremony decor should include one as well!
Remember being a kid and loving the cupcakes your Mom brought to school on your birthday? People have always loved cupcakes…they’re cute, individual and easy to eat. Face it, they’re fun! It’s no different here in Cabo…we love our cupcakes too.
But cupcakes for your Cabo wedding?
Cupcakes have reached a new level of popularity with many of the cupcake reality shows like “The Cupcake Girls” and “Cupcake Wars.” However, unlike in the States, here in Cabo we don’t have a speciality cupcake shop on every street corner. Therefore, if you want a cupcake, you need to order one from us, Cabo Flowers and Cakes.
But, again, the question, cupcakes for your Cabo wedding?
Sure, if you want them! Wedding cakes have always reigned supreme and probably always will. But cupcakes add a touch of whimsy to what can be a very serious affair (your wedding!) The brides that choose cupcakes do so for the following reasons:
A variety of flavors
As a unique decor item
As part of a larger dessert bar
In conjunction with a wedding cake
So, go ahead, order cupcakes for your Cabo wedding! Let us know what flavors you want (yes, you can add a filling to a cupcake as well) and we’ll help you design something that will make your guests smile (and grab a chocolate one AND a strawberry one!) Because, sometimes, with cupcakes, just one won’t do.
