Why Knot Chapeau de Gateau?!

How cool, my friends Leigh + Aldo's wedding from this past August, is featured in the 'Real Weddings -Toronto' section of The Knot. There's my cake topper!! Cake: She Takes the Cake.

Yes it's really ribbon...

Well it's actually piping. It was lots of fun twisting and turning the tape to create these new looks. It's pretty dramatic on a simple top.

Organza Rosette

This is a new style for the C'est Joli line. It's a crisp, yet sheer ribbon that has been twisted and gathered to create these voluptuous folds.

Here's a sneak peak of new designs from the C'est Joli ribbon accessory line. Some are special occasion and some are purely fun chic fashion!

Classic Elegance

The Wedding Co. show took place at the Carlu this past weekend and I was delighted to collaborate with Patricia Cakes and to have one of her beautiful cakes to display a new Chapeau de Gateau cake topper. I love the tonal patterns and textures mixed with a huge taffeta ribbon flower lined with delicate ruffle. An afterthought was to have a detachable flower to be worn as a brooch, -talk about multifunctional! The weekend was a success in meeting many fellow vendors and excited brides and grooms to be.

Chic Chocolate

This is another collaboration between Patricia Cakes and Chapeau de Gateau. I love the design that Patricia created to complement my "Andrea" cake topper. It looks so fresh and modern. It would also be very easy to translate into other colour combinations. Maybe traditional tailored black and white?

I'll be exhibiting in the round room where I hope to meet many brides and vendors to show the latest ribbon designs from Chapeau de Gateau and accessory line C'est Joli.
Ribbon-inspired items are being heralded by The Wedding Co as one of the Top 9 trends for weddings in 2009, so I'm excited to be part of their show!
