Doting on Dots, Part Two: People & Parties

In Monday’s “Part One: Cakes & Bakes“, we posted about all things sweet and Swiss-dotted. Here, we give you Part Two, a compilation of similarly patterned reception decor as well as some delightfully dotted wedding fashion pieces for further inspiration!

OR even consider donning a pair of adorably spunky socks down that aisle! Pair it with  pattern-less white shoes for a perfect balance!

Let’s talk hair accessories! Try out a short, dotted veil for a more non-traditional presentation! We think this blusher veil would be especially fitting for a country or rustic-edged wedding!

Swiss dots have a magical ability to mix n’ match with many other patterned material, such as the floral swirl patches at the edges of this fingertip-length veil.

Surely after all this, you must want to give this texture a try! Don’t just limit your options to decor and wedding wear – consider applying them to your paper goods?

Doting on Dots, Part One: Cakes & Bakes

Not just any dots, now – here we’re specifically talking Swiss dots, as in the cute, teeny-tiny ones that settle adorably against its a constant background. The “dotted Swiss” (coined to describe tiny raised dots against transparent tulle material) patterning has hung around since the 19th century, but has, since then, expanded beyond its original fabric definition. Its widespread involvement in the wedding industry has brought about the application of this texture on wedding dessert too, making cakes look absolutely darling! Due to the general popularity of this look, we’ve decided to divide the topic into two separate blogs, with part two coming on Friday!

Section them out with zigzags to create “nice negative space”, an art professors might critique.

Flatter, smaller, much more accessible – a form that’s all the better to eat ’em in!

Traditionally, Swiss dots come white on white, but there’s no harm in playing around with some brighter hues and values!

Or, use the dots as a coordinating agent when it comes to cake design!

Mini-cakes should adopt the Swiss dot concept too!
