A cake stand to display, little pumpkins for the Fall, for Halloween. The colours of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, and in the Southern Hemisphere, the colours of Spring, the celebration of renewal.
Struggling to find that special cake stand, perhaps a special colour scheme, you would like to incorporate into your celebrations.?
While searching for wonderful and different cake stands, I also found the hardware used to create these gorgeous tiers, that separate the plates.
Well a thought came to mind, do you have odd plates at home, perhaps in your favourite pattern or favourite colour, perhaps a visit to an Op Shop may uncover some beautiful old plates. Imagine….
A blue and gold dinner plate, I love the richness of colour, a glorious deep, rich, blue, edged in gold, ( oh dear, there I go!) and matching side plate, or just keeping with the colours of blues, deep, midnight, sea or sky blue, followed by a cup or saucer, or just a smaller plate than your middle choice, with similar shades of blue, perhaps with flowers or stripes, or…mmm… wonderful!
How can we then make our own tiered cake stands? Need a drill, with a special drill bit for china, otherwise you will end up with a smashed piece of china! A hole in the middle of each piece of china, then use gold/silver hardware bits and wonderful, there you have it! Your own specially created colour/themed tiered cake stand, hand made by you!
Well not too clever looking for drill sets, but I do know you need a diamond drill bit to cut through china, cleanly, leaving a lovely little round hole for your tier hardware! Also another cake stand popped up on my search and of course Waterford Crystal ! So included.
Now for some delicious, delectable morsels to put on our gorgeous cake stands!
To the Pleasure and Love of Tea, the Gathering and Enjoyment of Creating a Special Occasion/ a Celebration of Living, Enjoying and Being!
