Make a Creative Centerpiece


A magnificent table can be fashioned with one (or several) of the simplest items: a cake stand. The pretty pedestals raise decorations and sweets high, elevating offerings in every sense. The displays here -- small stands atop large ones -- show off pots (actually teacups and votive holders) of miniature African violets and stacks of cookies whose ribbons repeat the colors of the flowers.

    Really like this idea and love the little votive candles in the small dishes placed at each place setting also. I picked up some small saucers a while ago at TJ Max and this would make a wonderful use for them. I had just put a very small tea cup flower arrangement in my clear glass cake stand it looks great and the arrangement fills out the cake stand and top nicely. See I do think like Martha !
