Today in things that make me wish I had had a wedding cake instead of wedding pies are these absolutely adorable and amazing miniature wedding cake replica ornaments from Aberrant Ornaments.
While a miniature wedding cake replica ornament would probably be tough to pull off as a pre-wedding gift (unless you know what the cake’s going to look like ahead of time), it would be a wonderful first anniversary present (or belated wedding gift). It’s also something I can envision many brides and grooms purchasing as a mini keepsake for themselves!
According to the Aberrant Ornaments website, “Each piece is hand-sculpted out of primarily polymer clay then hand painted and sealed. They are very light weight and, if handled with care, will last a lifetime!” The typical ornament stands about 4 inches tall and costs anywhere from $100-$200. While I initially thought that was a little on the pricey side, this is a true piece of art and something that will be fun to reminisce over year after year. Personally, my husband and I are trying to fill our Christmas tree each year only with ornaments that have some sort of meaning to us (for instance, we get an ornament for each new country we visit), and a miniature wedding cake replica ornament would have been perfect.
The amount of detail that goes into each ornament is simply amazing!
In order to make a miniature wedding cake replica ornament, Aberrant Ornaments just needs photos of your wedding cake, which manes this would make a great keepsake for couples both new and old! (I just thought about possibly having one of these made for my husband’s grandparents… I think they’d be thrilled to pieces.)
If you have any weddings to attend this summer it’s worth taking a peek at Joss & Main because they’ve got a sale filled with bridal shower and wedding gifts!
Isn’t that three tiered cooling rack up there genius? Around the holidays I like to bake a ton of cookies but I stop as soon as I run out of room to cool them. With a bunch of racks like that I could triple my production. Originally $24.99, Joss & Main has it for $18.99.
This gorgeous Marielle Platinum Serving Bowl originally cost $125, but Joss & Main has it for $29.95!
If you’re looking for something unique, yet inexpensive, to get your favorite bride and groom, check out the Preppy Plates sale that just went live at One Kings Lane. For $29 you can make a customized/monogrammed platter like the ones you see above that normally cost $56.
There are a couple of different options besides the customized platter, including customized plates, serving trays, and coasters. This could truly be the perfect gift – what new bride doesn’t enjoy having her new monogram everywhere?
