I really thought I didn't have much for Thanksgiving. This is what I came up with, by just going through the house and selecting items I could use. I've used those candle holders on different occasions several times and love to work with burlap, so I've used it as a runner.

Halloween 2010 was fabulous, It was my daughter's birthday and she had a great time with her friends and family coming to celebrate with her. Now that she is 10 years old, she took alot of interest in the planning of her own Birthday, from the games we played, to the decoration of  the cupcakes to the bloody eyes you see.

Cake/Food Stand

Ever need a cake or food stand ? I make them all the time for my parties. I use candle holders and plates, things I have around the house. I like to multi- purpose things. I also went to the Dollar Store for the black and white and the green and black stand.
I used this Fix all Adhesive from the Dollar Store
Depending on the plate, if it is heavy or not. I put heavy adhesive or lighter for lighter plates on the rim of the stand. Put a plate on top of the candle holder and then put a heavy book on top and let it sit for awhile. I usually I make them days in advance.
My proudest cake stands are the ones I just made recently for my daughter's Halloween birthday. The black and white and the green and black. Those only cost me $2.00 for each stand, plus paint. I got a clear candle holder and the plate separately from the dollar store and painted the candle holder green and the other black. The plates were bought that way. You could also stack them up, like I did here.
