"I Do" love a cupcake...

Firstly, we’d like to apologise for the lack of blogs over the last ten days! Things really have been incredibly busy and despite wanting to write up every single event the days keep ticking by in a blur of tea, cakes, weddings and parties! Ok, that doesn’t sound so awful…

Although Joanne has been crafting away dispatching orders to lovely brides across the world, she has still found the time to design a fantastically simple and effective take on the popular Party Pick! A great idea for brides looking for something to make the guests smile, the original Party Pick has been altered to show how versatile and fun they can be. Pictured are the “I Do” Cupcake Sticks, ideal for popping in to your cakes and other sweet treats. We can imagine how stunning they would look if you were having individual cupcakes for your wedding cake and are something the guests can remove and take home to remember your special day. Of course, as with the majority of Vintage Twee’s products, they can be customised to match your colour theme and have the wording of your choice. So whether your wedding is classic vintage buttercream and dusky pink or modern, bright fuchsia and turquoise, the Cupcake Sticks can be made to complement your colour scheme perfectly. Adding the cute embellishments just finishes them beautifully and will ensure the transformation of your cake stand, buffet or tables!

Priced at just £3.00 for a pack of 8, what are you waiting for?! Check them out in more detail on Vintage Twee’s Etsy shop http://www.vintagetwee.etsy.com/ and don't forget to message Joanne if you have any requests!! joanne@vintagetwee.com


  1. Hi there, I just spotted your blog on someones sidebar and recognised the lovely cake picks as the ones sold in Emporium where I work!
    Just wanted to say hello, and that your goodies have proved very popular!
    Best Wishes

  2. Hi Gemma! Thanks so much for the lovely comment! I'm really pleased my items are going down well in Emporium, that's great news. Any inside knowledge regarding popular colours is always welcome too should you come across any! :) Thanks again and I hope to be able to provide more things soon! x

  3. I love these, one of my couples just used these at their wedding!

  4. Yay! Thank you for your comment, I love these too :) Simple but very effective!

  5. Hi Joanne,
    I ordered the 'eat me' sticks for my friend's vintage tea baby shower yesterday, along with the English literature tea favours and vintage tea recipe cards. The table looked absolutely amazing and my girlfriends were very impressed!
    Thank you for very much, your items are beautiful and so obviously handcrafted with love! I'm looking for a new excuse now to throw one again!
    Thanks again
    Helen x
