    Décor and Centerpiece

    To create a pretty chinoiserie theme decoration, the key is not to over-do it. Since the patterns are already very intricate and ornate, adding too much element to go with it will make your setting looks too crowded. Less is always more. Have some porcelain vases and pair it with mirrors for a more glamorous effect. You can also paint parasols with the oriental patterns and put it up on your décor.

    Wedding Cake

    The white and blue cake has a clean and sleek feel to it while the turquoise-colored cake with structure looks more edgy and modern. Whichever you fancy, these two options works just fine. Just be sure to pick the one that suits your theme and personality most.
