Ribbons and Bows

Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2004

Ribbons and Bows
Love knots in blue silk-taffeta moire ribbon decorate elegant wedding stationery. The knot symbolizes commitment, and blue has long been associated with fidelity.

To make a neat knot that won't add bulk to the invitation, cut the ends of a ribbon on the diagonal, knot loosely, iron flat, and attach using self-adhesive dots. For the program and menu card, punch holes, thread ribbon through, and tie.

Shimmering platinum-blue bands of spun sugar transform a rectangular fondant-covered cake into the grandest of packages. The triple-loop bow was inspired by the lavish, draping fabrics of haute couture
