Cake Stand (without cakes)!

What do you think of my first cake stand?

I think it fits in well with the other blue and white pieces on my dresser. 

I suppose I should have photographed it with some lovely cakes on it, but that would have been just the excuse I needed to have cakes in the house!  I'm trying to cut down on that sort of thing, so …… regretfully, no cakes!

I chose the plates and hubby drilled the holes for me - I'm not much good at that sort of thing.

Chose these chunky plates for the first one.  Think it would look good on a farmhouse table or with other blue and white china.

Going to try another one - this time with some vintage pieces.  Hope it turns out as well as this one.

Many thanks to all of you who take the time to comment
on my blog - I appreciate them all!

Love, Liz

I'm amazed that you actually made it yourself, it's wonderful. You'll have to get hubby to give us all a tutorial on drilling holes in plates!

I'm so impressed. It's gorgeous!

I think it looks brilliant and kudos for making your own rather than going 'off the peg' - I've always wanted to have a go myself - are the rods/handles easy to find?

Beautiful cake stand - i have a massive thing for cake stands and am always picking them up on my travels. Ive bought a drill bit and the handles to make my own but ive never got round to doing it, got so many projects that need doing :o) Scarlett x

Lovely would you mind sharing what type of drill bit you used was it a special one? The stand is fab I love the ones that are all mis-matched china.
