Target dollar spot. Enough said. 🙂 Ok, I walked into Target and saw these cute scalloped cake stands and snatched two up asap. $5, say what? Now if I could just find that black and white striped pitcher/vase from the dollar spot everybody else seems to have, I would be set. So I love the shape of the cake stand but red just wasn’t going to work for me. 1. I wanted to use this for more than just Valentines. 2. My valentines decor is mostly pink and gold this year, no red. I know, but I just wasn’t feeling red this year. So I decided to bust out my trusty spray paint and get busy. I know that painting them will make them not usable for food. That didn’t matter because they would be mostly decorative. If I want to use them for food then I will use doilies or some type of liner first on the stand.
Now these cake stands can be used all year long. I’m thinking they will look awesome in the top glass cabinets on display in the new house. My kids had such a blast making these valentines cupcakes. Naturally, I had to display them on my cute cake stand. Again, there are cupcake liners so they are not directly on the painted stand. Walmart also had this cute glitter heart confetti for $0.98. This year Valentines Day is simple because we are in transition while waiting for our house to be built. Can’t wait to see these stands in action this summer in our new house.
