I first happened upon a photo of the artist Georgia O'Keeffe's home on Pinterest and immediately had to search for more photos! There is so much to love about Georgia O'Keeffe's desert home in New Mexico. The artist kept her home and studio very bare and minimal. I love how clean and sparse everything is and yet still so warm and so inviting. I'm very partial to desert landscapes and elements of the desert, so her home speaks to one of my interior design sentiments. (Because as you know, there are multiples)

Although it is hard for us to pick our favorite element of a wedding (it's like choosing your favorite child, it just can't happen), we think for many guests enjoying a delicious slice of wedding cake has got to be one of the favorite highlights. We have put together a handful of our most adored vintage inspired wedding cakes via Pinterest below. We really love the ones with fresh floral detail and  quirky vintage wedding cake toppers. Make sure to tell us about the cake at your wedding (or dream wedding) in the comments below!

These vintage wedding cake toppers are from the 1930s and 1940s and most likely made of chalk ware. If you're looking for a unique decorative topper for your upcoming nuptials, might we suggest an antique or vintage wedding cake topper?
