kiki la ru cake bunting


ok, so i’ll admit that this comes from the files of “adorable, but not necessary”. but does that bother me? not at all. i really, really love small decorative details when it comes to setting a great table and these sweet handmade cake bunting designs from dawn at kiki la ru are perfection. made with vintage and re-used fabrics, this adorable debut line of bunting would be perfect for a birthday party, homespun wedding, or, in my case, a “i made a cake because i wanted to eat frosting” occasion. click here to check out and shop dawn’s beautiful bunting designs on etsy ($21-$26 each). thanks, dawn!

    I love this post. I love the dainty cake flags and the way that velvet looks on the cake! Great ideas!

  11. Melissa says:

    Ummm, in what way isn’t this necessary? I don’t understand! Anything that cute is ABSOLUTELY necessary!

  12. Anabel says:

    I never had such an urge for frosting…!

  13. melissa says:

    I just sat down to “rest my weary feet” after hosting my daughter’s 4th birthday – and what do I find? Proof that I have, again, done it all wrong and have found the perfect cake just hours too late…sigh…well, I’ll try again when other daughter has a b-day in Sept – but she will be eight and has opinions…we’ll see – gorgeous, anyway!

  14. Mariah says:

    That last occasion for eating cake that you mentioned is a familiar one for me. :)
    I’ll have to try making some of this bunting though. It takes cute and bunting to a new level. I knew bunting could be used for everything but I didn’t really know EVERYTHING.

  15. Okay, after seeing another post on what I thought was the cutest idea in the world – a homemade bunting stamp – I am now totally obsessed with bunting.
