DIY Barn wedding | 100 Layer Cake

Sarah + John would rather spend an evening playing lawn games than dancing, and would rather eat BBQ and make s’mores by bonfire than have a DJ. So, that’s exactly how their wedding went off. For starters the barn, Kindred Ground Farm was gorgeous. It was the perfect wedding venue for them to express their personality, and left them tons of space to DIY it up and provide a fun, casual day with friends & family. Everything you see was handmade, and beautifully captured by Justin Michau.

Heather Hele of Sweet Revelry Event Design was kind enough to share a DIY tutorial so we can easily make these cuties ourselves. Any Cinco de Mayo weddings being planned out there? How perfect would these look in your cocktails?

Step one: Set your doily in a bowl or tupperware and cover in fabric stiffner. Once it’s entirely covered, place on parchment paper to dry.

Step two: When dry, grab scissors and begin shaping the doily to the shape that you’d like. Then cut a slit through to make it easier to shape into an umbrella.

Step three: Glue the slit together, shape in your palm, and glue in your stirring stick to the center.

Step four: Turn it over and glue your embellishment to the top center and add t0 any cocktail!

Gold Milagros (small metal religious charms often carried around for luck and protection) were incorporated throughout the tablescape by sewing the individual charms onto the lace table runner and edging the napkins. Gold Sacred hearts (known to symbolize the love one feels for another) were placed on each place setting, then appeared in the paper goods by Pitbulls and Posies, and adorned the gorgeous cake by Hey There, Cupcake!.
