I have a fascination with cake plates, they are so elegant, so pretty, and there are so many different kinds! I think I own about 5 of them, and I am always on the lookout for another! I do use them for cakes but I actually use them more in my home décor decorations. That is right, cake plates are the perfect backbone to any home décor display. They are fantastic at creating a vignette with height and adding a touch of elegance to any display.
Table center piece
With fall just around the corner cake plates are the perfect addition to any table center piece. Pile some pumpkins on top of the cake platter and surround the bottom with eucalyptus and you are ready to go! They give the table decoration varied heights to create an appealing and inviting display.
Cake plates don’t have to be limited to cakes! Pile them high with cookies, a quiche, or biscuits to make a brunch spread even more beautiful!
Bathroom countertop to elevate the soap and lotion
In our first home we had a large bathroom counter top in the guest bathroom, as a way to fill some of that massive boring space I add a cake plate next to the sink with the soap, lotion, and a guest towel. Using the cake plate in the bathroom was an unexpected but beautiful use of the space.
Family Room for photo display
To give some height variation to the photo display on the console in our family room, I added a cake plate to one side and put a photo, candle, and succulent. It really brings life to the display and makes it feel even cozier!
