I recently picked these beauties up from a garage sale and one of my favorite thrift stores. New and vintage cake stands can cost you any where from around $20 up.
This blue china stand is so sweet.
The crystal one is pretty classic.
And I love the edge on this large milk glass stand.
In addition to looking great on a buffet table ...
They make great candle holders. I love this idea!
Look at this centerpiece idea from wedding and event designer Preston Bailey:
Tie the Knot
And this is a great idea for the kitchen! You could also use one to hold your spice containers near your stove.
So if you have a few cake stands around try one of these ideas!
(If you'd like to start your own collection, the three vintage stands shown above will be available in my Etsy store!)
