In Love With...Cake Stands

I am getting prepared for Bub's 3rd birthday party this weekend.  For her cake I am going to be making cupcakes.  When browsing the www for ideas, I loved seeing the cupcakes displayed so nicely on cake stands.  My fondness grew for an item I never really thought about.  So, the hunt began and the ideas continued swirling.

I have been roaming around different thrift stores over the past couple weeks.  Today, I finally found a stand worth getting.  This treasure cost me a whopping $4.80 and is gorgeous.  Wasn't thinking about getting one in glass but when I saw it I fell in love!  I plan on trying to find more but I am really interested in attempting to make my own.  A DIY project looming for my future.

Hope you enjoy my treasure as much as I do!






Here are some of the inspiration pieces I found on the web.












These DIY stands are just gorgeous and really seem so simple!

  1. There are some really unusual cake stands out there. I like the one that you found. Now I'm going to be on the lookout for galvanized containers, and cake stands. I like to look for things for other people. I wish you lived closer, there are so many places to go out here. I'm always going to flea markets and garage sales.

  2. Aunt Joan- I know it is crazy the things you can find. All it takes is being patient and willing to go around. Me and Katie should take a ride up by you and you can show us around to where you go! I'd love to even take some pictures of the things you found for your home and show them off on the blog!
