Handmade Giving: Plate Pedestals
One of my absolute favorite things to decorate and entertain with are cake pedestals. They can be used for just about ANYTHING, you guys. You can find them scattered all over our barn-house and I believe that every home needs one (or five) as well! They make a perfect coffee, cocoa, and tea caddy, jewelry stand, desk organizer, and work great in the bathroom for pretty soaps, perfumes and washcloths. Sometimes I will use them for candles, or to showcase unique curiosities! They are awesome even for men, as a shaving or bow-tie station! As you can see, there are endless uses for these towering beauties. The best part is, these eclectic cake pedestals are completely customizable to the person you are giving them to! Design it to go with their decor so they can use it more often than just for entertaining.

To create the ones above, I used pieces that I had lying around our home from both Europe and The States. I love the combination of old and new. You will want to make sure that if you are using the pedestal for food (and not decor purposes), that the plates are food safe. Let the person you are gifting this to, know that it is always BEST to hand-wash these pedestals. If you are living in The States, stores like Homegoods and Marshalls have a wonderful selection of single plates that you can purchase to mix and match. If you are using random antique ones, there will be a cool story that goes along with your gift!
