A great wedding cake topper/memento
We had a small, modern cocktail party wedding, and used this figurine for our cake topper--it is the perfect size and contrasts beautifully with a pure white cake. We got a lot of really delighted comments about it! Kind of silly, but just wanted to mention it, since this is a genuinely practical use for a little knick-knack, and now it's a pretty sentimental little thingie that sits on our dining room credenza.
