Looking for the perfect tropical-themed wedding cake for your summer wedding? Tropical leaves are a current fashion and décor trend—the patterns are showing up on everything from wallpaper and bedding to art prints for your wall. The bold, bright greens instantly read “tropical” and can translate perfectly into a wedding, especially if you’re hosting a summer or destination celebration.
Case in point: the monstera leaf. Also called a split leaf philodendron, this large, shapely leaf is great addition to your wedding décor. Place one or two monstera leaves in a tall glass vase and display them on reception tables, or affix several leaves to a wall to serve as a modern ceremony or photo booth backdrop. You can also work them into your cake design—have your baker decorate the tiers with monstera leaves fashioned from sugar or paint the tiers with a repeating tropical-leaf pattern.
