I’m really pleased with how our Upsidellies decorated with flowers and buttons turned out.
This shows the lovely couple, the incredible bouquets by I heart Buttons that we were asked to co-ordinate with and the resulting Upsidellies Place Names/Favours.
So, continuing on from the previous Argentine Embrace post, this post is about the inspiration behind my new Rustic Glamour collection. I’ve been looking on pinterest and wedding blogs for a while for new wedding cake pop ideas and to see what the most popular colours are for brides. I kept seeing mood boards around a woodsy, country theme with lots of chocolate brown and forest green. Like this one from blog.finestationery.com
I love the rich colours and earthy textures and of course anything chocolate is going to be loved by me! At first I was thinking of designing rustic cake pops with a plain matt chocolate finish topped with chopped nuts, probably lovely green pistachios …. something like this …
But as much as I thought they’d be yummy and fit the theme I just didn’t think they really went well with the other wedding collections which are much more sophisticated and glamorous. After seeing some stunning gold themed inspiration boards I decided to add gold to the brown and green tones and cobbled together a mood board of my own from everything I’d seen and loved. ( If you’re looking to make a board of your own or want to be inspired by colour take a look at The Perfect Palette – their boards are simply beautiful and its really easy to use.)

And what did all these beautiful inspiring pictures lead to?

So? What do you think? I’m pleased with them – I feel like I achieved a good combination of the earthy rustic colours of chocolate brown and forest green with a more glitzy feel that I think U.K. brides will prefer.

I thought it might be a good post to show you first my inspiration and then the wedding collection It inspired me to design. I was blown away by a photo shoot featured on The Wedding Chicks Blog
and my starting point was the inspiration board I made from their photos.
And this led to ….
So what do you think? Comments gratefully received!
DelliPops of course! What about an edible bouquet of DelliPops?
I’ve got a few ideas if anyone would like to treat their mummy to a yummy treat! I’m thinking £20 for 15 cake pops decorated with flowers in a vase or plant pot interspersed with a few silk flowers?
This is a stunner from Silicone Moulds
, very impressive and would also make an amazing table centre for a garden party or similar themed wedding
Mine are going to be somewhere between the two I’ll post pics as soon as I can.
This stunning mood board makes me want to make shimmery wedding cake pops in pearl and blush tones topped with delicate blooms. Gorgeous!
I decided to go a bit retro for a teenage sleepover birthday party .. its difficult to decide what to do when you get free reign!
Hope the girls like them.
these are the flowers
and this is the finished result .. funky flower chocolate cake pops!
