Faux Crystal cake stand

Do you like my new cake stand? It cost me $11! It may look like a cut glass cake stand but it isn’t. It is actually made of acrylic picnic ware I purchased at Target on the weekend! The base is an upside down acrylic martini glass and the top is a matching upside down plate from the same set of picnic ware that can be purchased individually. I have chosen to join the two using some double sided clear tape so that it doesn’t slide around. You could do something more permanent but I wanted to be able to remove the tape and use them separately if I wanted to. If you can’t get these from Target you could use any glass and plate to create the same look. Don’t you think this acrylic version is perfect for outdoor entertaining when you don’t want to be worrying about breaking a precious cake stand? Would make a great gift too.
