A Cake Stand

Last week I had the privileged of getting to meet 4 other Birmingham design blogger's for dinner. I had an absolute blast and really can't get over how adorable and gorgeous they all are. Who was I so lucky to meet? Marianne from Haven and Home, Jennifer from The Newlywed Diaries, Brooke from Blueprint Bliss, and the new to me Jessica from Under a Green Roof. Well, over the weekend I began to scour Jessica's blog and came across the most lovely cake stand...

{via Wisteria}

I love that's it wood, sigh*. I only wish it wasn't so expensive.

{via Crate and Barrel}

I also became smitten with these when I saw them in the Crate and Barrel catalog. I love the ruffle detail and I could buy both for less than the price of the wooden one. I really do just love a pretty cake stand.

* I was lucky enough to do a guest post over at Blog Goggles today. Check it out if you would like. It's all about my signature style or lack of, ha!

I had such a great time at dinner too! And I have loved reading your blog! I added it to my google reader this weekend :) That cake stand is so beautiful, but so expensive! If I see some similar for a steal I'll buy us each one :)

Your blog is beautiful! I can always thank Blog Goggles for sending me fabulous new places. Love the pears on the cake stand. I'm getting married this summer (small wedding), just found my vintage sleek silver cake stand yesterday. I never bake cakes, but now I have an idea how to display it after the wedding - with fruit!

I haven't fallen in love with cake stands YET, but as soon as our dining room table comes in, it'd be a great center piece! Adding random items to it here and there!

Loved your guest post and I feel the same way about scarfs--I easily have 20 and wear them almost everyday:)

I love cakes stands-- they have always been a weakness of mine. Everything I bake just looks better on one.

I'm newly obsessed with cake stands myself. I do love that wooden one.

What fun to have a little blogger get together and to meet in person, love that idea. There are several bloggers near me - we should do that too.

Ok, I'm off to check out your guest post!

I'm definitely a fan of the cake stand. Wouldn't mind getting one myself.
I'm starting to really like scarves now. So I do understand why it's become a style for you. There are so many beautiful types!
