DIY: Stacked Box Bridal Shower Cake

DIY: Stacked Box Bridal Shower Cake

Here’s a different kind of bridal shower centerpiece or accent decor idea that is cute, quick & easy, and can be customized to your own theme in so many ways…

I found this cute set of round red nesting boxes at IKEA for $9.99, stacked them, and wrapped each tier with a band of decorative paper that coordinated with the rest of the party.  For the “cake topper” – a framed print featuring a photo of the happy couple. This particular frame is double-sided and also from Ikea… and at only 99¢ you can’t beat the price!

If you don’t live near an IKEA, try doing an online search for “round nesting boxes” or “round stacking boxes“.

BoxandWrap.com has some cute round & square nested boxes in several feature different patterns – so you could them these as-is, or maybe add a solid color ribbon for a reverse effect to the above.

P.S. If you know of any other resources for these types of boxes that could be helpful to others that want to do something similar, please share them here. Thank you!

Oh, I love this! I’m planning a “ruby anniversary” party for my in-laws’ 40th anniversary, and this would be a perfect centerpiece, color scheme and all.

I had the idea of doing just this & cutting a card slit in the top & holes enough in the boxes below so that guests can put their cards in it My idea was with square boxes but it would work with round too. Wish I had a picture to share with you. These are pretty. Love the colors.
