Prescription for myself: a little trip to the antique store. Could I find something for only a few dollars that I really liked? And when I say ‘only a few dollars’ I mean just that. Well – I did. I found this cake topper from the 1950’s.
It’s a little over the top, with daisies all around the base and also on the top, fancy arches framing the bride and groom, a yellowing bell hanging over the happy couple. When I first brought it home, I noticed that there was a lace skirt on the bride. It was also wrapped around the groom.
It may be hard to see but the skirt was around the waist of the bride and the groom. That didn’t seem right. I tried to pull it over the groom’s head but that didn’t work. I ended up cutting it off. Unfortunately I took the little tulle veil off too. That will be glued back on the bride’s head.
I think she looks better without the lace. Her dress is quite elegant.
My apologies to the Bride. Your veil is soon to be back on your head.
This is a tall cake topper, much taller than the others I have. Some creative shelf rearranging was required.
I really like it. And I almost put it back on the shelf at the shop; in fact, I did put it back. Fortunately, I came to my senses.
I think it might be time to name each bride and groom.
