Spruce Up Your Cake Table: Our Favorite Ideas for Wedding Cake Table Decorations

Wedding cakes are such a fun wedding tradition. And while couples seem to always put attention into the cake itself, we too often see the cake table lacking. We hate to see a cake centered in the middle of a big barren table so we knew we had to hunt for some of the prettiest cake tables we could find to share with all you bride and grooms-to-be! You’ll be amazed at how stunning some of these displays are—all it takes is a little imagination. Take a look at some of our favorite ideas below.

Get creative with your cake stand to add an extra flair of personality to your cake table. We especially like these three ideas: a block of concrete, an old cola carton, and a slab of wood. Adding flowers, succulents, and serve ware makes the look even more pretty.

The look of flowers and other greens under a glass table is stunning! Candles make the scene extra pretty, but honestly, you don’t need much more than the pretty plants themselves.

The cake doesn’t always have to be in the center. Don’t be afraid to include other props and accessories on your table while off-centering the cake for a unique look.

If you have a favorite quote or story that means something special to you, then we suggest adding it into your table decor. Whether that be marquee letters, a chalkboard sign, or a cake topper, this is a great way to add some personality to your cake table.

Sometimes a cake table doesn’t need to be a cake table at all. We love the idea of using alternatives such as barrels, dressers, cartons, or even a swing. Just add some flowers or other accessories to complete the look.
