Cake Stands

A couple of months ago I was searching everywhere possible to find a cake stand for our wedding. It seemed to me that before I needed a cake stand I saw them everywhere! And then, when I needed one most, I couldn't find one that pleased me.

I had seen some simple glass ones at Wal-Mart, but I wanted to get something a little fancier since it will be for a wedding.

I saw some cute ideas online, but the shipping to Canada would make it double to price. Aie-ayaie!

Imagine changing the red ribbon for a sage green ribbon?


You have to admit these look really yummy!
But I don't have 160.00$ for a cake stand...

Well, one day browsing through random stores in Mount-Royal in Montreal I came upon a store which had a lot of kitchen stuff. I thought, "Heh, why not? I'll browse inside and see what I can find". And I found this one:

I know its not the prettiest one on the block, but for 15.00$ I am pretty happy with it. Plus, it's a light yellow which is part of my color theme.

I'm happy with my cake stand. I still have a wondering eye though if I end up finding something else with a little more pizazz.

What kind of cake stand style are you in the mood for your wedding?
