Pretty Peacock Wedding & a *NEW* Cupcake Stand!

I am so excited about this post! Last weekend I had the pleasure of being a part of my friend, and hair stylist extraordinaire, Jackie's big day {oh and her beau, Christian's, too!! Haha!}. I always feel so honoured when friends ask me to bake their wedding treats! Their reception was at the lovely {newly renovated} Viscount Gort.

Jackie and I have been talking about and planning the wedding cupcakes for months. I love that Jackie wanted the cupcakes to be front and center, on display for everyone to enjoy all night long - no pressure to create something awesome! She also had her eye on a beautiful clear stand..... but I did not have a beautiful, clear stand...uh oh! I searched high and low for the perfect stand but kept coming up short. In the end I decided to purchase a new stand and couldn't be happier! Not only does it look amazing, it has presence. 8 tiers and 200 cupcakes later we had the perfect reception centerpiece!

Jackie chose peacock colours - teal, greens and purples - as accent colours for her decor. The real peacock feather on the side of her cutting cake perfectly tied in with the tall peacock feather table centerpieces. 

I also LOVE the black liners used to bake the cupcakes in. Because the cupcakes were two different flavours  {chocolate and cookies & cream} The black liners created a more unified look. Super classy and polished! Not to mention way more cost effective than paper cupcake wrappers :)

Congratulations Jackie and Christian!! Wishing you much happiness and joy in the years ahead! Thanks again for letting me be a part of your big day :)

** My new, beautiful stand is available to rent! It holds up to 200 cupcakes and can be down-sized to accommodate smaller numbers :) **
