So we have dealt with the vivacious side of a carnival, so now let’s use this theme for weddings. Bring out the fairy lights, garlands and lanterns. Lighting is an integral part of every mood. Being the subtle touches of a flickering candle or small delicate lights that look like the nights sky, every single element can cause any event to become a romantic one.
Cake tables filled with sweet treats like candy apples; candy floss and the bridal cake.
Make sure to stick to the theme: add candy floss and pinwheels to bring an edge to your cake.
Keep the centrepieces as fun and creative as possible add pinwheels, popcorn, sweets even some ticket stubs to bring the theme to life.
Can you smell the fresh popped popcorn smothered with butter and topped off with salt. Get your hands sticky with a delicious toffee apple. Doesn’t this bring back memories of your childhood?
Well this is the carnival themed occasion where anything goes. Large popcorn inspired arches and fantastic welcome boards.
Do not forget to have a fabulous cake and sweets stand for your guests, every celebration needs a little candy.
Get DIY savvy with the centrepieces add lollipops, balloons and popcorn. Make your own garlands with scrap paper and hang it everywhere the more the merrier.
Your table decorations can be as colourful and as youthful as you want it. This is completely up to you, have fun and find that inner child again we all need a moment of being spontaneous.
I have search far and wide, over the vast dry dessert to find these amazing and intricate designs for birthday, wedding and baby shower cakes.
Birthday cakes: Be as creative as possible, make sure you have horses, cowboy hats and lots of buckles on your cake design for this fun country themed party.
Wedding Cakes: These are more romantic and ornate in structure, use nude colours as your colour palette for this cake. Incorporate country in the theme as well by adding lucky horse shoes.
If you want to be more adventurous rather have a cheese stacked with fruit, this will be a great substitute as a cake.
Baby Shower Cake: Baby nappies are so easy and simple to mould try these designs for a country themed shower.
Having a country themed event is very simple to do; it brings in the rustic and earthy festivities all into one.

Add either beautiful flowers in jars or tins to keep with the urban feel. If you want to be more creative you can add cowboy boots to the centre piece. Other fantastic ideas are candles to produce a romantic environment of have different size logs in the middle.
The cake table is the always the centre of attraction as it is the focal point where people can get sweet treats and amazing drinks to try out. Be bold and instead of setting up a usual stable with various delicacies, use haystack or barrels.
