Wedding Trend: Cakes with Bunting, Fringe + Flags

One of my new favorite trends I’ve noticed is mini bunting + cute flags on wedding cakes! Such a fan of both. How cute are these cakes below with their own bunting?

Etsy seller Kiki La Ru sells her creations for mini cake buntings and even offers a DIY kit for you more crafty brides. :)

Or maybe some fun fringe for your cake? The City Cradle has an adorable diy on her site to make this one.

And little flags! I just love the simple beauty of these from Herriott Grace

Or maybe you take the flag idea and add your names or just married or another fun slogan!
