Stalking the Prettiest of Pretties

Sunday’s Favourite Thing

I’ve only recently been introduced to the tradition of a cake charm or charm pull. I’m sure it has similar origins as the baking of a ring or coin into a barnbrack, in that you bake several charms attached to ribbons into the cake. The bridal party then pull a ribbon and see which charm they get, each charm having a different meaning.

Martha Stewart

Traditionally, sea related charms are used such as an anchor for stability. However you could use charms that relate to your wedding day theme, such as an Eiffel Tower for a Parisian theme. Or use Irish themed charms such as the Claddagh or a shamrock.

    That’s a really sweet idea, never heard of it before but it’s so nice I can see it catching on here 🙂
