Your Cake Needs Flour & Flowers

While the main ingredients of any cake are eggs, sugar, butter, and flour – we would like to add one more – flowers! The trend is not new but we still thought it would be nice to showcase some of our favorites made by yours truly. Adding flowers to your cake is a versatile statement that can fit and complement the ambiance of any wedding. With the rounds of champagne glass clinking and toasting, the cutting of your cake will surely be a highlight to your reception.

There is such a large selection of combinations to choose from (and this is on top of cake tasting). But remember when choosing flowers for your cake to make sure they are edible and safe. Which one did you like? And how did you incorporate flowers into your wedding cake? Let us know in the comments!

Happy Wedding: Melody + Brandon

Melody and Brandon said their vows at the rustic and charming Orange County Mining Company last year. Our beautiful bride sent photos from their wedding day to share with us so we knew we had to share with you all. We loved their colors of blue and orange!

Congratulations Melody & Brandon!

Happy Wedding: Lisa + Justin

Warm sand, seaside view, and gorgeous florals – that’s how Lisa and Justin had their wedding last August. They met in college and have been inseparable since. He proposed on a hot air balloon ride with champagne and breakfast and then they had their wedding at Hotel Laguna. It was an intimate wedding on the beach complete with florals by yours truly, Petals By Xavi. Lisa wanted her flowers to be mostly white with pops of blue and since it was a beach themed we knew we had to incorporate that into her bouquet. Take a look at the beautiful bride and what she sent us in our inbox last week.

Thank you for letting us be apart of your special day. We here at Petals by Xavi wish you two all the best!

Cheers to a review!

Our motto has always been “we love what we do and it shows!” and we are so grateful that others think so too. We came across this review over at The Wedding Channel by our previous couple, Sheryl and Peter.

And then she gave us five out of five stars for Quality, Service and Value! Thank you so much Sheryl and Peter. It’s great people like you two that make our labor of love worth everything! If you had us at your wedding, remember to leave us a review over at The Wedding Channel too!
