6 Delightful Ways to Decorate a Wood Cake Stand
We think cake deserves to be up on a pedestal, don’t you? There’s something very satisfying about seeing the delicious chocolate cake you made for your friend’s birthday on display. Our mango wood cake stands look fabulous on the dessert table but these beauties are decorative, useful, and just plain fun to have on display in many places. So, when the birthday celebration is over, don’t put your pedestal cake stand away!
We’ve put together 6 delicious ways to decorate your wood cake stand that don’t involve calories.
1. Open up a fruit stand
You won’t even have to take your pedestal cake stand out of the kitchen before you’ll find another way to use it. Set it on your breakfast nook or kitchen counter as a centerpiece to hold apples and other fruit. Not only will it look great, but it’s also a smart reminder to eat “an apple a day”.
2. Everything but the kitchen sink
In most homes, the area around the kitchen sink can be a bit boring. Elevate the area by putting kitchen cleaning supplies up on a pedestal. Top your wood cake stand with dish soap, hand soap, and some handy scrub brushes. Add a scented candle to remove any lingering cooking odors and make cleaning up more enjoyable.
3. Spruce up your coffee bar or tea station
Round up some of your favorite coffee essentials and invite some sweetness to your morning coffee routine. Our mango wood cake stand is just the right size for extra spoons, frappe whisks, sugar, and cinnamon. You can even top the stand with your favorite mugs for an organized start to your day.
4. Create a dresser drop-off zone
Go ahead and think outside the cake box. Here, a decorative wood cake stand becomes a drop-off spot for a watch, trinkets, and earbuds. Add a necklace tree and you’ll never have to go searching through your jewelry box again.
You could also create a drop-off zone on your entryway console. A decorative bowl on the top of your cake pedestal stand becomes a temporary home for car keys. As you walk in the door, empty your jacket pockets and toss on the day’s mail to get to later.
5. Show off your beauty products
What better way to display your makeup brushes than on a decorative wood cake stand? Practically speaking, it keeps the clutter off the counter and those everyday essentials close at hand.
6. Give your shelf décor a lift
Your favorite décor items will stand out when you perch them on a cake pedestal stand. It makes such a fun and versatile decorative accent. During the year you can switch it out for seasonal décor or anytime you want to change the look of your shelf décor. Display a few vintage items, like colorful glass pieces along with some fruit and faux grape clusters.
Planning a romantic dinner for two? A decorative wood cake stand can make the occasion memorable. Bring it to the table topped with a bottle of wine, a corkscrew, and two wine glasses.
During the holidays, you can create a simple holiday centerpiece by topping your wood dessert stand with a clear round vase filled with a bouquet of classic white blossoms and greens. Or gather white pillar candles of various heights and wrap the rim with a garland of bright red berries.
And there’s always dessert! A wood cake stand is perfect for serving cake, cupcakes, French macarons, assorted chocolates, and more.
