About

Today and for all times, for us, home isn't a place. It is a person. And we are finally home.

SARAH NEUBURGER is the owner of The Small Object and the Etsy shop, Together Forever. This might be a little confusing but The Small Object is the shop for all my everyday items and then I setup Together Forever to just sell my wedding toppers.

How did this all start? I was born in the Midwest and raised in the South, spending most of my childhood mapping out elaborate neighborhood monorail bicycle map systems, singing "It's a Small World" until my mother could take no more and teaching my inanimate objects how to color, count and sew. After spending some time hopping from Brooklyn to Manhattan to Jersey City and earning my Master of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts in Studio Art, I left the world of non-profit arts management to the land of boiled peanuts + iced tea to start my own business.

And what about now? Nine years later, my shop is a thriving online business that remains humbled by the ever-growing support for handmade and those individuals who seek out and support independent designers. To date, I have made more than 700 custom wedding toppers. The idea to make custom wedding cake toppers started at the request of one of my customers. (You all are brilliant!!) I had been making smaller clothespin doll art pieces which were extremely popular. So popular, in fact, folks started imagining themselves in miniature form, too. I found creating wedding pieces was way more fun than I ever imagined. People say that couples planning a wedding can be difficult clients and I have learned that is simply not true! I feel so honored to work with couples as they mark one of the most important moments in their lives together. To enter your space to celebrate your love and to create an object to remember that moment fills me with gratitude and happiness like none other.

Where do I live? I currently resides in Decatur, GA with my wife, three cats... Chloe, Charlie and Oscar, and one three-legged dog, Milton. The shop is run by just me and all correspondence will be with me directly. Nice to meet you!

Thank you so much for your interest in a custom wedding topper! If you have questions about our ordering process, here is a quick summary.

To order a custom piece, first decide on what options you want to customize. All our options and pricing are detailed below.

* Standard Base Piece - $150
Includes, as applicable, a standard knee-length A-line dress or my standard full-length dress, choice of suit/tie, base and bouquet color choice options. Figures will have our standard painted hairstyles, but can include beards/mustaches or bald heads! Figures can also be stained a darker shade for no charge.
---------------------------------------------
OPTIONAL ADDITIONAL FEES
---------------------------------------------
* Custom Wedding Clothing - $75 per figure
A very popular option if you would like me to sew a miniature version of your wedding dress! The fee is charged per figure, so if you only need a custom wedding dress but just need our standard suit option; the additional charge would be just $75 more for the bride figure. Simply submit photos or a link to your wedding dress through our online order form and I will sew a miniature version!

* Wooden Heart Valentine - $20 each
This small wooden heart valentine can be personalized with your initials or with a flower and ribbon like a small chocolate box. It is typically held by the partner that is not holding the bouquet.

* Miniature Props - $30 each
In the past, I have incorporated camera, books, golf clubs, guitars, saxophones, soccer balls--you name it! These additional unique props can be added to either level of customization above. If you haven't seen me incorporate it before, please inquire first to ensure it won't be a problem to do.

* Personalized Chalkboard - $30 each
This is a popular feature that can be included and personalized with your initials, names with heart (ex. Sarah ♥ Edie), and/or the date of your wedding. It is typically held by the partner that is not holding the bouquet.

* Pets - $45 each
I can incorporate your pet into your piece for this additional fee. The cost is per pet. Please be aware that for large animals or for more than 3 pets, I will likely need to use our larger base. Additionally, I begin with standard pet forms so extremely unique breeds may be difficult to accomplish so let's discuss your pet first, if you have any doubts.

* 3-d Dimensional Hair - $50 each
This request can be accommodated and is charged per figure. Typically, if it is important to you that your longer hair be shown, it can be done with a hair bun to the back of the hair. For curly hair styles, I can paint the hair to reflect the curls. Natural looking gentle waves and long curly hair can be difficult to achieve and I would encourage you to look through our past pieces to see if a painted style would work for your piece as this is our signature look.

* Custom Theme Base - $60 fee
This element is created in consultation with your overall design and includes the cost of adding flowers and natural elements to the base to blend seamlessly with your overall wedding ideas and themes. This might include a small grouping of flowers on the base instead of our standard plain ribbon, or the addition of a rock grouping with wildflowers, twigs and bumblebees, flowers all around the base, pumpkin or vintage button groupings and so forth!

* Wedding Arch or Flag Bunting Garland - $60 fee
I can add either a curved arch with silver or gold wedding bells accented by flowers, a natural twig arch or a fabric flag bunting over the two figures that is secured to the base by two poles alongside the figures. The flowers or fabric bunting are customized to your wedding colors.

* Tree Backdrop - $65 fee
If you would like to add a Fall, Summer or Palm Tree to your piece that is placed behind the couple, I can do it! Tree selections are limited and may require additional time to complete.

* Babies and Children - $65 each
Do you have a super cute baby or child to include? I can add them on your piece! One baby swaddled in a blanket and one child will fit on our standard size base. Additional children will require me to use our larger base. For children, their clothing can also be customized to their wedding day outfits.

---------------------------------------------
ADDITIONAL FREE OPTIONS
---------------------------------------------
* Date Flag: A small paper ribbon date flag can be added to the base ribbon and stamped with your wedding date.
* Flower Fascinator: I can add a small flower to the side of the bride's hair, if you like.
* Veil: A white or ivory tulle veil in any length can be added.
* Glasses: I can add black, silver or gold glasses to one or both figures. I wear them, too! I hear you. Glasses are awesome.

// HOW TO ORDER //
Select the listing you want with the custom options you desire from the list above. If a listing is not available with what you would like, simply contact me and I'll set one up. Once you have purchased your listing on Etsy, follow the link to submit all your information to me via the online form found here:
http://www.thesmallobject.com/products/customWeddingTopperFormEtsy.html

----------------------------------------------------------
CUSTOM DETAILS SUBMISSION FORM
----------------------------------------------------------
Please submit all custom information via this form:
http://www.thesmallobject.com/products/customWeddingTopperFormEtsy.html

// HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE //
On the custom details submission form, you will list your wedding date and need by date. I will honor your need by date and place items in my schedule according to this timing. Please see our current turnaround times here:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/togetherforever/policy
Once your order is completed, I will convo you photos for your approval. No piece will ship until you give you approval on the final piece. Orders are then shipped via USPS Priority Mail to you.

// PROTECTION //
Again, no orders ship until you give final approval and you and your partner are 100% happy with it. Also, all pieces ship with a disc to place on the top of your cake to protect the base from any contact with the icing so you can be sure your piece will stay clean and pristine during its use.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment is accepted online via Paypal.
Shipping
Given the time of year, the current turnaround time is now approximately 2-4 weeks. It is best to have a couple of months lead time but I realize that is not always possible. At this time of year, pieces ship much faster than during the Spring and Summer. If you are planning for a wedding next year, I would suggest trying to allow 1-3 months.

All orders are shipped via the United States Postal Service, unless previously discussed.

International orders can ship via USPS Priority Mail International to all countries it supports. Delivery times for Priority Mail International are generally 6 to 10 days once shipped. Express Mail (EMS) service is available, however, the cost is typically $20 more. Please convo me if you are interested in that option. However, packages can take 2-4 weeks to arrive depending on your location. Please allow for plenty of time!! If you are on a tight schedule, I recommend upgrading to Express Mail service.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be so happy you never even consider a refund! That said, if damage occurs via shipping, please contact me as soon as possible so a claim can be filed with the shipping service. Usually, claims cannot be processed after 7 days so it is very important you contact me ASAP.

All custom items must be approved by the buyer prior to shipment so any changes or uncertainties regarding the custom piece should be addressed prior to shipment. As a result, I am not able to grant refunds once a piece has shipped. However, please know that I am 100% committed to creating a piece that you will absolutely love!
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always welcome and encouraged!! Custom details and accents make for some of the most amazing pieces! Custom listings are available to purchase through the shop but please always feel more than welcome to convo me to discuss your details!
Thank you!!
