Antique Plate Cake Stands

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Once in a while I come across something so lovely that I burst with joy to share it with you and can't type fast enough to get it posted. Finding this darling Etsy shop gave me that feeling...Maybe because I'm still recovering from Mom time earlier this month, or maybe because a touch of vintage makes my heart smile. These southern made cake stands are created out of antique plates and crystal candle holders by Olivia and her mom. If that doesn't make your heart smile...





Of course it's beautiful for cakes but since I rarely bake I'm thinking of lovely alternative uses such as a jewelry catchall on the dresser, a perfume tray on the armroire or a plant stand on the side table. Can't you just see a vase of peonies perched atop?

  4. I love these, and I think your repurposing ideas are fantastic! I'd love to see a collection of beautiful perfume bottles atop one of them!

  5. I think using it for other things than cake is almost better, you would get to enjoy them every day instead of just on cake occasions. And they are definitely beautiful enough to want to enjoy every day!
