Thank you Kathie, from Southern Charm Vintage Rentals for sending this us this stunning sweets table inspiration!
The vintage-style sweets table curated for Deepa and Greg definitely lives up to the ambience of this historical venue, Victorian Castle; De Le Salle. This 1880s venue is tucked away in downtown Toronto on a 13-acre lot. Newly open to wedding day celebrations, this wedding venue is sure to inspire !
The bride wanted a sweets table to match the character of this period mansion, to accentuate her culture, and Henna accents. Metallic gold was the chosen colour for the tablescape. This on-trend colour added both charm and elegance to this stunning day. Two vintage gold and crystal candelabras were used to create the height and framework of the gorgeous table.
The 1920s antique cake stands with gold rims and ripple glass would hold the feature Henna Cake perfectly, matched with warm tone mango cupcakes. Divine!
The Henna cutting cake boosted metallic gold with purple art, matching the bride’s beautiful Henna art hands. Oval gold and ivory mirrors were placed low and used as trays for more cupcakes in delicious Chai Tea, Glutton-Free, Lemon Butter cream, and Raspberry flavours!
Notice the two matching 3-tier towers, of mix and match cut glass patterns, that were symmetrically placed on each end of the table. The vintage cake stands were from various countries; French Crystal, American Pressed Glass and the small cake stands from Portugal. The patterns of glass with frilly edges made for a romantic display as soft candlelight bounced off the patterns.
We love the unique piece which was the focal point of the table…an ornate gold, framed convex mirror. The mirror distortion gave a fish-eye view to the entire table, and surrounding room, marrying it all together. The ambiance of the venue was reflected in the mirror, and photographer, Channa Photography, made great use of this feature as he captured the couple’s cake cutting in the mirror!
Elegance and charm. Just lovely! Enjoy!
