I love making dessert stands using disposable paper plates and cups. You can have a different stand for every party that you throw! I found these clear plastic plates and cups and Sam’s Club and I loved that the cups were see through. I put fresh flowers inside and I think it turned out amazing!
They are really simple to make. Just put the fresh flowers inside the cups ( I used 9 oz. cups) and then hot glue the open end to the top plate first. Then glue the cup to the bottom plate. You can use two cups stacked end to end for a taller dessert stand or one for a small one. I used 2 of each at the Summer Garden Party.
Here is one I made with a small plate on top and a large plate on the bottom. I love the splash of color that the flowers give!
Here is the larger stand with two cups stacked. This was great for the cupcakes which were a little bigger in size. The desserts worked perfectly on these stands and the flowers stayed fresh in there for 5 days afterward! Amazing!
