23 New Uses for Serving Pieces
Cake StandsSet a mood. Use cake stands as platforms for votive and pillar candles in assorted sizes. Susanna Linse, a spokesperson for Sur La Table, suggests placing candles on a doily to protect the plate from wax.
Exhibit your treasures. “I collect tin toys and keep them on cake stands,” says Linse.
Remind yourself to do what you have to do. Place a cake stand (or two) on a table near the front door to hold letters to be mailed, bills to be paid, and your shopping list.
Show off. Display small photos and mementos, which look more important on a platform.
Raise the bar. Heighten the appeal of guest soaps and washcloths.
Feel pretty. Organize your perfume bottles or jewelry on an elevated tray on your vanity table or bedroom dresser.
