I love cake plates. How about you? I see them at Home Goods and other great stores and must force myself to leave them on the shelves just where I found them. Sometimes, I will carry one throughout the entire store…you know, let it marinate in the brain a little before I finally convince myself that I don’t need it.
Well, a party had to be planned recently. You may remember the photos I posted of my baby’s 1st birthday party…an up, up and away themed party and the table dressings had to be just so. But I didn’t want to pay upwards of $20-30 for a couple of cake stands, so off to the Dollar Store I went.
A little E-6000 glue, white spray paint, and a few $1 candle holders and platters later, I had 2 cake stands and a 2-tier cupcake stand.
