Cascading Florals

We know many brides love adding flowers to their cakes. A unique take on this trend is to incorporate this is by adding a cascading floral arrangement around the cake. You can also tie the colors from your wedding theme into the florals, as well as your bouquets and bridesmaid dresses to create a cohesive look.
