My Favorite Things: Cake Stands

Okay, okay, I know the title of this post seems a little redundant, I mean, who doesn't love cake stands? I, for one, adore them and have quite a few in my arsenal (and I'm sure I'll keep adding more) for any sweet treat that needs displaying. I think cake stands are one of the quintessential host/hostess staples that everyone needs. One of the best places to find affordable cake stands is actually Home Goods! They have several to choose from and they typically don't cost over $20. Because Home Goods doesn't have a website where you can see their merchandise, I'm going to go ahead and share some of my favorite internet finds!


I love how ornate this stand is! It has that vintage, depression glass feel without the antique price tag. I also love not having to worry about breaking a family heirloom (I mean, it happens!) You can purchase this beauty here.

PBCakeStandThis pretty turquoise stand is from one of my favorite places, Pottery Barn! It has a classic design with a touch of that rustic/homegrown feel that Pottery Barn is known for! Check it out in this color and many others here!


I love this, I love this, I love this! The height is an awesome alternative as most bases are roughly around 6 inches tall. This stand is just what you need for a dessert table with varying heights to add dimension. They have other color options as well which you can take a look at here!


This is one of my favorite designs! I have this stand in both Jadeite (pictured above) and a pretty pastel pink. These can be a little pricey, but the quality is incomparable. They are a gorgeous colored milk glass made by Mosser Glass Company. Check them out here at my go-to party supply site, Shop Sweet Lulu!


If you have never checked out BHLDN, you are missing out! They are purveyors of lovely bridal and party products! This adorable pink glass stand is perfect for a tea party. There are two sizes featured here.


I have a galvanized cake stand exactly like this from Crate & Barrel, but unfortunately they have stopped selling it. At any rate, I was able to find a lovely substitute on! This is great if you like an industrial feel (and it's one that the men in your life won't think is too girly!). I use mine year-round, but especially during the fall! You can get your very own here.


Who say's cake stands are just for dessert? I think this pretty wooden stand would be ideal for cheese or bread (or both). It's nice to have a versatile piece like this one in your corner. You can purchase it here.

MacysStandDetails, details, details! This stand looks like it was picked up from a tiny shop in Italy or France, but it's actually from Macy's! This would pair quite nicely with wooden or galvanized details because of it's rustic design elements. Get one for yourself here.
