When it's time to cut the cake and serve your guests, don't do so without this engraved cake serving set with jute and lace handles. There are two styles available for this set as well as matching flutes. We engrave the blades with a special spray that leaves a permanent black engraving that really stands out. 


Wedding Card Box

This beautiful wedding card box is wrapped in burlap and lace with sunflowers fastened to the top. We cut your last name out of wood and fasten that to the side after painting it black. We do the same with the word "cards" on the top of the box. All of this can be customized with colors and fonts to go with your wedding colors.


Sand Ceremony sets

If you are having a beach wedding or a rustic unity ceremony you can choose to have a sand ceremony set as part of your wedding ceremony. This is where you and your spouse fill jars with different color sand and then pour he sand into one container symbolizing the two of you becoming one. Some customers buy more than one side jar for pouring so they can include other members of the family. We engrave the main center glass block with a monogram and names and date. We can then engrave the side glasses with a letter representing the persons name or we can also wrap the side glasses with burlap. We have several different shapes and styles of sand ceremony sets available in our shop so be sure to take a look at all of them and find the one you like best.


Candy wrappers
