Marvelous Monday: Cake Stands & Tea Plates

[Via Country Living]

Now that all my big stuff is taken care of [WAHOO!] its time to focus on the little details. However, these little details are some of the most important decisions I have to make for the wedding! Not only do these details add up, making one large task to focus on, but they are the pieces of the wedding the guests will see for most of the night. Plus, the ornate little details are often heavily captured by the photographer.  With that being said, I’ve turned into a slight perfectionist, making sure every single piece is exactly perfect [or as close to it as I can get!] One of the main tasks on my plate right now, ironically, is finding a plate! [Cake plate, that is!] We’re having a gorgeous, vintage inspired wedding cake and it needs just as gorgeous of a plate to sit on. I’m all about the details in my wedding, so I’m trying to find a stand that reflects the vintage, historical vibe of my day without breaking the bank or doing it myself. [I’m trying hard to avoid those tasks!].  Cake stands are also incredibly versatile as well, so I’m trying to find a couple that I can use for different purposes! [See below!]

These would be perfect for a sweets bar! Place you cake on the highest one, and then scatter the remaining desserts on the smaller, different size plates for a unique and vintage look.

Possibly the coolest thing about cake stands is that they can be used for just about anything! Don’t rule them out if you aren’t having the standard wedding cake, these gorgeous pieces can be used as a centerpiece, for your sweets bar, and even to display place cards and flowers!

Tiered stands are perfect for little sweets, like cupcakes, cookies, brownies and merignes! [12, 3 & 4]
