We can hardly believe it, but today is Love & Lavender’s third birthday!! In some ways, it seems like just yesterday that we launched this little blog…and in other ways, it feels like so long ago! Through all the change and growth in our personal lives–graduating from college and getting married (Aileen) and having a baby, with another one due in less than a month (Ellen)–we’ve had a lot of fun running Love & Lavender these past three years. Since one of our favorite things about birthdays is cake, we thought we’d share a roundup of some simple, sweet, and stunning wedding cakes to celebrate this special day!
What’s a birthday cake without candles? These extra-looong ones are fun and unexpected, and would be perfect for your wedding if you’re planning to have a separate little cake to cut!
Another typical birthday item is balloons. They also make great decor for weddings, like this super cool ombre balloon backdrop. Easy, inexpensive, and really effective! We also LOVE the little mini balloon cake topper. How adorable can you get?
Last but definitely not least, we’re loving neon pink on cakes, especially when used in fresh, modern ways, like a sparkler cake (so fun!), a textured cake wrapped with pink ribbon, a clean and simple cake with bright pink on the top of each layer, and a donut cake–complete with donut cake topper.
