Once I am done concentrating on tomorrow's big show at the Farmer's Market, I will immediately start work on my Wedding Cake Toppers and Center Pieces.
Yesterday, I added a listing for a Custom Wedding Cake Topper on Etsy. I think its really important to leave an option for brides (and grooms too!) to customize their own gem tree cake topper. I have a list of more than 80 gems, all colors represented, 5 standard colors of wire with 7 specialty colors, and a choice of different bases that would work with a cake. It can sometimes be hard to find exactly the right piece already created, I understand it. I'm hoping my custom order listings will ease that frustration! I have the gems broken down into colors, and I will be getting the list up on the website here shortly, to make it easier to find what you're looking for.
The bigger project will be starting the Center Pieces. I'm thinking of having them available in groups of 10. I haven't figured out pricing yet, I need to do some cost accounting and research before I announce it. The choices will be to have Mini Gem Trees or Large Gem Trees. I can incorporate little stands into the wire roots if you'd like, to hold a place card. You can also request a different style of gem tree if you wish, I have no problems with that! I figured I'd start with the basics first.
In addition to weddings, these tree configurations would also work great for baby showers and anniversary parties. The nice thing is, you can always keep your cake topper or center pieces around, to remind you of the special event! They will never go bad. :-)
Well, I'm off to go prepare for tomorrow's show! I will post after the event to let you know how it went!
