Decorate Cake and Knife Servers

22 Jun
  1. Many brides want their dream weddings to have that little extra decorations and details that costs a lot if purchased already finished, this page will show you how to decorate your own cake and knife server without spending a fortune. A decorated set can cost in access of $30.00. A plain cake and knife server can be purchased for $8.00 to $10.00
  2. For this project I will use a 12 inches of 2″ satin ribbon, 12 inches of 7/8″ satin and organza ribbon, 1/8″ satin ribbon and a flower for the finishing touch
  3. The 2 inch ribbon will be the base for the decoration, just fold the ribbon with both ends sightly overlapping in the back and tie it with 12 inch piece of 1/8 inch ribbon and leave the excess ribbon
  4. Next, with 12 inch strand of the 7/8 inch ribbon create another bow (smaller than the satin one) and also tie it with 12 inches of 1/8 inch satin ribbon
  5. Tie the two bows together and let the thin strands hang down, than use another 12 inch strand of 1/8 inch ribbon to tie the 2 bows to the handle of the server
  6. After tying the bows to the server add a flower for the final touch, try using a flower that is as flat as possible. Cut all of the thin satin ribbons at one length slightly longer than the organza and satin bow, this will give the decoration extra length. If you want a touch of color in this project, try substituting the 7/8 inch ribbon for your wedding color
  7. Here is the final decorated server next to the plain one. Most fabric stores carry ribbon by the yard, or if you have already decorated something don’t be shy to try different kinds of ribbon, just pick a wider one for the base and one half the size of the base ribbon, total cost of the decoration $5.00 for both the servers, and if you make 4 of these decorations you can always decorate your toasting glasses to match
