Baking beautiful and delicious desserts is our primary goal here at SWEETTABLESCAPES, but as we all know, we also eat with our eyes and there is nothing more tantalizing than a dessert on a pedestal; cake stands, platters, compotes, trays are all part of the feast and help make that sweet moment even more special.
The holidays are just around the corner and when the time comes to set up your buffet, remember to put your best serving pieces forward!!
Here are a few of the really beautiful serving pieces we’ve come upon recently. See an older roundup here.
Myriam B. Maguire’s cupcake stands are pieces of art and sold at Bergdorf Goodman:
Serena and Lily offer beautiful, lacquered cake stands and trays in jewel colors:
Michael Aram makes beautiful accessories for the home and this cake satnd is one of them:
These petrified Wood tiered stands from Horchow are stunning!
For another fun shape and a rustic and natural option, how about his 3-tier slate and wood tray from Villeroy and Bosh, on sale right now at Bloomingdales :
Pottery Barn even has a new product that they call “a set of 3 Jewelry Trays”, but here at Sweettablescapes, we call them “Adorable Cupcake-or any sweet-you-like-trays”. Don’t you agree?
And lots and lots more trays of course:
If you are planning a special party or event and don’t have the budget to invest in all these beautiful serving pieces, remember that you can always rent. Check out the amazing website of Enticing Tables and rent one of those cupcake stands…
