We got to go to VINEWOOD PLANTATION with two other Creatives from FAR OUT GALAXY, DJ Cuttlefish and RobotBooth, for Petra and Stephen’s wedding. It was beautiful. The style for their big day was simplicity, ruggedness with some elegance! After meeting in the mountains, they wanted to incorporate that feel and their love for the outdoors into their wedding.
There were tons of neat details but one of the best was the trendy geometric background made by the bride herself. We sat down with her and asked a few questions and even got some details on the DIY process. Read and view below.
Walk us through the making process of your Cone backdrop for the cake.
I saw a picture of one on Pinterest early on in the wedding planning process and completely forgot about it! Then later I saw it on my board and thought that it would be a really unique element to add to the decor, and potentially fun to do! My mom and I tried to figure out the supplies we needed. A lot of wax paper, string, hot glue and ribbon to tie all of the strings on. We cut out so many circles in the wax paper, then after that, we folded them in half, then twisted them into a cone shape and hot glued it together! After our cones were ready, we used a needle to put the string through the cones and used a drop of hot glue inside each cone to hold it into place on the string. We did several different lengths of strings. After the strings were all done, we hung the ribbon on some hooks on the wall and arranged the strings along the ribbon; each string was secured onto the ribbon with a knot as well as some more hot glue. This sounds like a decently simple process, but it definitely took a while to find our groove and the most efficient way to get each thing done. My mom did the majority of the work on this, and she worked at it for at least a couple hours every day; it took us about 3 weeks to a month to complete! So bon voyage to anyone else out there wishes to tackle this back drop!
