DIY cake plate ruffle


For each collection that I style, I try to come up with something unique to make the photography pop. For our new Halloween Candy Corn collection, we enlarged our ghost from the invitation (part of our printables available in the shoppe) to hang above the dessert table. He’s just so darn cute I wanted him to have more of a starring role (you can see him in the announcement post). Then as I was prepping the table, I decided that I wanted to bring our color palette up to the cake plate.


Using black crepe paper and double sided tape, I created a ruffle around the edge of the plate.


I love this because it was so easy, more than cheap and can be recreated in a multitude of colors for any type of party!

As always, I hope you’re inspired!

    Love the cake plate ruffle! Do you have a team of like 20 people coming up with all this wonderful creative cuteness?? Because seriously, one person should not be allowed to have this much talent. Thanks for inspiring.
