Had anyone ever had their Wedding Cake displayed atop a Grand Piano? I am at loss on how to decorate the whole set up... If anyone has picture(s) please post or pm to me. The cake is balck and white but having it sit on a piano makes me wonder if I need table cloth? candles? flowers?

Please help on ideas!!!

I've never displayed a cake on a grand piano, but as a pianist myself, I'd want something underneath the cake if it were my piano! Maybe you could call the venue and ask about the table cloth issue? With regards to candles, flowers, etc...can't comment on that, but it might look nice with those things!

definitely a tablecloth! The flowers, candles, etc. will depend on the style of the cake.

I agree with ZoesMum - as another pianist I cringe anytime I see something on top of a piano, espeically flowers with water and candles as the heat could really damage the surface. Definitely find out from the venue if this is allowed first.

I know the owner of the Grand Piano would want it protected but who's responsibility is it to decorate the table or in this case the paino?

Just wondering - if decorating cake area decorating is on an individual basis per contract at an additional charge for decorating supplies.

I'm confused on why the issue of "who decorates it?" is actually a question unless you folks routinely include table decor as part of your pricing? icon_confused.gif

I've set up a cake on a piano, but like with any regular cake table, it was prepped, decorated and ready for me to sit the cake down.

I'm not a reception decorator nor am I your wedding planner .... if the bride wants someone else to do her decorating, she needs to hire those who do it.

There's a reason I called it "Drop and Run" delivery.

I agree with Debi. Why would you think it's your job to supply / set up any of that? When I got married the cake "guy" wouldn't even place the flowers on my cake. icon_confused.gif
