host and toast specializes in accessories for wedding ceremonies and receptions, including signs, cake toppers, chalkboards, table pieces, and picture frames. What we especially liked about toast and host is their categorizing system: they divide their products by themes like, Romantic, Rustic, and Modern. No matter what kind of wedding you're having, there's something for you in host and toast's products. David and Carlen emphasize this diversity as a strength on their American Made site:
We both have a passion for different areas in design, so we constantly challenge each other to make our collections more well-rounded. David draws inspiration from masculine, industrial dark woods and metalwork, and I am inspired by anything soft, light, airy, and natural.
Below are bride and groom chair signs from host and toast's "Romantic" collection:
The "Modern" collection emphasizes clean lines and geometric shapes:
We love the "Rustic" theme with its woodsy cake toppers:
The tree cake topper reminded us of BDT's "Signature Conifer Tree", a favorite for rustic weddings:
We had fun imagining host and toast's decor at a woodsy event. For more rustic inspiration, also check out our "In the Mountains" Pinterest page.
Thanks for the look into your company, Carlen and David, and good luck in the American Made contest!
