Make your own vintage cake stands!
I found this wonderful idea using op-shopped plates and glassware stuck together to create unique and very thrifty cake stands. Have a looksie here. It's a bit hard to see in the photo but essentially they have glued thrifted glasses to the bottom of thrifted plates. Genius for those who need a lot of cupcake storage all at the same time. Maybe a wedding, kids party?
