There are so many gorgeous cupcake stands available now, but when I made these for two different family weddings there was absolutely nothing available other than wire stands.
The secret is scalloped scrap paper. Find a whole lot of sheets and along with polystyrene cake stands, double sided scrap tape and a few optional extras like little scrap diamond or pearl buttons and transfers, the options are truly endless.
Simply cut the paper so that the scallops overlap the edge of the polystyrene base, adhere with double sided scrap tape and fill the base with round discs of scrap paper. For the large wedding stand, I traced the circles onto cardboard and cut them out by hand. Then stack the different sizes on top of each other or place a single base onto a cake platter or stand.
Ok so this is my REAL family Christmas table. Where REAL people sat and ate! Very simple, very earthy, very crafty and very me!
WIN! WIN! WIN!

LOVE SHACK Phyllo Pastry filled with Vanilla cream, served with island fruit and butterscotch drizzle
I belong to a dinner club known as the Bookless Club, and I hosted the first dinner party of the year. Since February is the month of love and scorching temperatures, I chose the theme “Love Shack” which incorporated a kitsch island style feel.
