African Themed Wedding

I posted a bridal bouquet post last week and a lady asked what ideas I could come up with for an African themed bouquet. I decided to explore the work of African themed weddings and I was pleasantly surprised by the truly unique ideas. African themed weddings are largely different than Safari Themed Weddings and use more shades of brown and gold. Unlike the animal print we often see in Safari Themed Weddings. Here are my findings.

This cake does have more of a safari theme, but the first layer is so gorgeous I just couldn’t pass it up.

The above flower is called a King Proteas and is very often used in African themed bridal bouquets and centerpieces
