Bridal Shower: Bridal Shower Cake Wording?

Q:

I am the maid of honor in charge of ordering the wedding shower cake for my sister's bridal shower. What would be appropriate to have written on the top?

A:

Don't worry too much about this detail -- there are tons of options for decorating a shower cake. It can be as simple as "Congratulations Julie", or as ornate as you want and can afford. Some ideas include writing a line from her favorite poem, covering the cake with her favorite flowers made of sugar or the design of her china pattern, even a scaled-down version of her wedding cake. When making your decision, consider the bride's personality and the formality of the event. If the shower is casual, and she has a great sense of humor, maybe she would get a kick out of a funny caricature of her and the groom. If the event is more formal stick to something a little more traditional -- you can never go wrong with a spray of beautiful fresh flowers. You probably know your sister better than most, so go with your gut, and do what you think would make her smile.
