Fresh Flowers and Cake toppers 

Fresh flowers are a stunning addition to any cake. Brides can add fresh flowers from their bouquet to a cake for a fee $25.00.

Recommended types: Roses, Alstroemeria, Freesia, Iris, Daisies or Gerbera Daisies, Hydrangea, Dendrobium or Cymbidium Orchids, Lilies, Tulips, Mums and Waxed Flowers.

In choosing to have fresh flowers arranged on your cake, you acknowledge that fresh flowers are not food products, and may be toxic or contain pesticide/herbicide residues, dirt, insects, and/or other contaminants.

If we have been informed prior to the event date that fresh flowers will be supplied for your cake, we will gladly arrange these flowers on your cake for you, upon our arrival on site. However, all responsibility for the freshness, color, overall condition, and cleanliness of the flowers rests with you (and/or the event florist).
