What We’re Loving: BHLDN’s Curious Cake Toppers

Elephants, bears, and swans — oh, my!

Cake toppers — a tried-and-true wedding tradition — have come a long way in recent years. While the quintessential bride and groom topper is still very prevalent atop most tiers at weddings, brands have gotten seriously imaginative with their new cake topper creations.

Sure, we’ve covered our fair share of unique ones — toppers carved from wood, streamer toppers, toppers that light up — but the most recent collection from BHLDN, the sister company to Anthropologie and Free People, is a whole other story.

With designs from hugging bears to smooching sea horses, the wedding brand is getting a little animal crazed. They have porcelain elephants with floral imprints, swans with bow ties, and kissing birds, among many others.

And the fun doesn’t stop there. The brand also boasts a ceramic convertible topper with cans and streamers hanging from the back like a classic wedding getaway car, as well as a mixed media piece that’s so over-the-top it’s more than $500!
