my new obsession

i love cake stands. and i’ve decided that i will start collecting them. because i love them so.  i’m sure ryan’s reading this right now and saying “no way jose” (probably not jose, that’s my addition), but i’m not saying right this instant, but when i finally have a nice, bigger place. and collections aren’t (usually) amassed all at once, but rather, throughout time (though i am pretty impatient).

#1 reason for my obsession and desire to collect? parties!

what a beautiful sight! you know i love me some dessert, and this is what every party needs. a beautiful table of cake stands filled with scrumptious desserts.

my collection is at one right now. i currently own this clear glass domed beauty from crate & barrel (thanks to my mother-in-law).

glass c&b(not my actual one. i’ve never made a cake so perfect…yet)

hopefully one of these beauties will be #2 (and 3, 4, 5, 6…) in my collection…

if you see any lovely cake stands while thrifting/ebaying, keep me in mind 😉 do you have a collection of something, or want to start one?

p.s. congrats to my cousin jenny & her husband justin, on the birth of their gorgeous daughter jillian joy on tuesday. can’t wait to meet her (and hope she enjoys her blanket and burp cloths)!

  1. This came at a perfect time for me to read! We are doing a cake table (I seriously already had that top picture saved) at the wedding with individual round cakes and I am on the hunt for them. Found 3 vintage ones. I registered for this one too: http://www.crateandbarrel.com/decorating-and-accessories/home-accents/trio-tiered-stand/f40877
    And also am making some from vases and plates.

    (And to answer your question, I started collecting salt and pepper shakers 2 yrs ago)

    • love that idea! your wedding will be amazeballs, i’m sure. you have such great style. you should show me the ones you make – perhaps a guest blog post?? 🙂 also – love the salt & pepper shaker collection. i have a really cute pair that i love from anthropologie.

      • Ooooh yes I will guest-blog and hopefully it will make me do my own! I am off to try to get some supplies. I will take a picture of the vintage cake stands I found and if you like it, I’ll send you one after the wedding! Seriously, I will have so many and I bought a set of 4 so I will only want to keep one.
