Etsy T-T-T-Tuesday: You just can’t top that!

Oh Tuesday. Not quite the tingly middle of the week, not nearly the bitter start nor the melancholic end that brings the realisation that it’s all about to start again. You. Yes, YOU are the real middle child of the week. Poor thing. But not to despair, because you Tuesday, you bring to us treats from etsy and for that I am grateful.

Following in the spirit of my wedding post yesterday, this week’s Etsy T-T-T-Tuesday is dedicated to the top of the wedding cake.

Vintage cake topper

Vintage Cake topper

How about this for a piece of something old for your nuptial celebrations? This vintage cake topper dates to around 1940 and has been altered only slightly to keep the spirit of the old school vibe. I think it’s beautiful and for the right couple a piece they would remember forever. It only costs $55 at Paperflora’s store.

Love brids on tree stump

Tweet tweet. Don’t mind us, we’re just a couple of love birds. If you saw this and said the word ‘cute’ you’ve echo’ed my reaction. While not my personal choice, I couldn’t help but smile at the mere adorablity of these lovely birdie toppers. Priced at $100, they are highly customizable, from the colour of the grooms attire, to the brides bouquet to eye colours and more (oh did I mention the eyes are Swarovski crystals??). Get them at Kikuike’s store.

Custom Figurine

Custom Figurine

I’m so sold on this its not even funny..the bobble head type figurine (I don’t believe the heads actually ‘bobble’ on these..) are too (geeky) kewl for school! The ability to have them look just like the bride and groom is a huge plus and a unique take on the traditional topper. Priced at $298, you can order one now from Mark 13148’s store.

All you need is love

LOVE cake topper

After all, it’s all we need right? This is such a kewl idea. The iconic ‘LOVE’ scultpure by Robert Indiana is recongised all over the world. It’s so simple, yet so powerful. I used to pass the one on sixth avenue all the time – it just made me smile. How about it for an interesting and unique topper? The butterfly design studio sells them in a variety of colours at $88 a piece. Get it while it’s there!

  1. Oh, I just love that first vintage topper. Etsy really does have everything!

    • I know isn’t it lovely? And just having it would make me wonder about the persons who originally had it. If they are still alive, how their life and love worked out. Do they have kids? Are they happy? Was their love enduring and what did it endure? Ahhh so much from a topper!
