Music themed Custom Cookies

15 Apr

I prefer edible wedding favours, as I think it will not go wrong, and is more environmentally friendly.  If I have to choose, I would love to receive cookies for a wedding or party favour.   If you can bake, I am sure you can explore any of the following cookie types to complement your music themed wedding.

(1) Musical Instrument-shaped cookies

(3) Musical Medium shaped cookies.

So far I have featured those that look more adorable and edible (e.g., I don’t consider blue cookies appetizing for some reason..haha…) . I am sure that there are definitely more cookies (try searching for images under the search term “music themed cookie”), but they are variations of the categories above. Hope to see more unique music themed cookies in future!

Music Themed Tablescapes

22 Dec

Here are some ideas that I found on music themed table-setting.

1. Using music records and curious

  • Google Search Term: Music themed table decorations
  • Website: Martha Stewart -Jeremy and Andrew’s Wedding
  • Remarks: Description from the website, “…perched atop the “music” table’s orange shag carpet is a rack of 8-track tapes and a Woodstock LP tucked into a Fisher-Price record player. Florist Candice Milliard rooted succulents in a retro cork planter and used craspedia to playfully suggest a disco ball…” I thought this is  an interesting alternative to flowers! We can display super old CD records that can be conversation pieces for older folks, and upbeat ones for the younger ones.
Violin and Mandolin Centrepiece

2. Using a Violin and Mandolin.

  • Google Search Term: Music themed table decoration
  • Website: carolina-jewels-table
  • Remarks: The use of instruments as decor is indeed interesting. The designer said, “For the centerpiece I used a fiddle and a mandolin. I was lucky enough to have my daughter’s violin/fiddle and one of her friend’s loaned us the mandolin. Getting them to lean just the way I wanted was a bit of a challenge. I finally used 2 glass cake plates with lips which could hold up the instruments, a vase to hold up the mandolin’s neck and a ham holder to more securely hold the fiddle. All of these got covered with black fabric which blended with the black table cloths. Around the tables I used pennants made of old sheet music glued to ribbon and then attached to the edge of the table.”

3. Using Concert Posters

  • Website: Trixx/Mixx Productions
  • Remarks: Putting posters are also possible. If you have  past programme booklets from concerts, these can possible be part of the decorations.

Will keep a lookout for some more!
