- Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI
We’ve all found some great wedding ideas and deals thanks to ETSY. One that I saved as a favorite early on was this cake stand…
I thought it was so cute and would work out great to give our smaller two teired cake some height! But at $60 + $20 shipping = $80 total, I thought I could do it for less. To find my supplies I turned to…you guessed it! ETSY! I was able to buy a plain old cheese box for $35 (including shipping) and a decal that says “Love is Sweet” for $10 (including shipping), so my total cost was $45.00, I saved $35! Great deal. I also could have just painted on the words and saved myself the cost of the decal but I really didn’t trust my painting skills! So here’s how my version turned out! I’m also thinking of putting this cake plate on top to give us a nice surface to place the cake if we need it… Don’t worry, after some work I cleaned the label off the top of the cheese box! I was kind of sad it shipped that way, with labels stuck all over it. But it worked out in the end. Now, just so you can get the full picture here is our cake inspiration and details so far… Cake topper Forks!
