I am in LOVE with Pinterest. When I'm wake up in the middle of the night, I peruse Pinterest until I get sleepy again. There are so many wonderful ideas, I've found myself copying some of them for holiday decorating.
I saw a photo of a holiday table with a cake stand used as a candle stand. Brilliant! However, I don't have a cake stand and have never really felt the need for one. So off to ebay I go to find the perfect vintage cake stand for my own table. I found this wonderful heavy glass stand that's perfect. I love ebay, too. Now that I have a cake stand, I might find more uses for it during the rest of the year. And it will work really well with some of the pieces I have that were my grandmother's!
I made my table runner out of 16 count Chili Pepper Heatherfield fabric and hand hemstitched it all around. I think it works perfectly with the cake stand.
