Chandelier Cake Stands are the hottest must have party design.
Crystals and chandeliers have been used as wedding decorations for many years, but it is just within the last few that the trend has expanded and exploded.
Now it’s hard to find a wedding that isn’t using either one or the other. And one of the most popular ways of incorporating both of these things beautifully into a wedding is by having a chandelier cake stand. The marriage of hanging crystals and chandelier cake stands have become so popular that people have begun using them for more than just weddings. With their gain in popularity, they have also become a must-have for birthday parties, baby showers, and graduations.
Because of the diversity in which you can use a chandelier cake stand or cake plates with crystals, there are many different ways to attain them. A quick search online will direct you to many different places where you can purchase either a cake stand or cake plate with chandelier crystals already attached or crystal decoration. The prices range from relatively cheap to a little more on the expensive side. However, purchasing a premade chandelier cake stand or crystal cake plate is not your only option.
I know both words chandelier and crystals sound fancy by themselves, so the thought of a crystal chandelier cake stand or plate automatically sound expensive. Which in some cases they can be. If you are able to invest a good chunk of change on one (or however many you are needing to get) can cost you up to a few hundred dollars online. Since that isn’t in every body’s party or wedding budget there are also several other more reasonably priced options available for purchase both online and in physical stores. Google shopping will bring up several chandelier cake stands and plates for under thirty dollars. You can also find vintage ones at thrift stores.
Do it yourself or DIY has become very popular in recent years and a lot more people are leaning this way when decorating for parties, weddings or other special occasions. When you decide do make a DIY cake stand or plate, you get to decide exactly how much detail or work goes into it. You can make the chandelier cake stand look exactly how you want it to, whether that be more traditional, or a little more eclectic, the choice is yours. The DIY route is often cheaper in the long run, because you are buying the supplies to make it. You’d be amazed just where you can find the needed items to make a personalized chandelier cake stand or crystal cake plate.
Beautiful crystals and other supplies to make your own DIY cake stands and plates can be found at Cristalier Crystals website. The possibilities are endless. The only thing holding back how creative you get with your project is how much money you want to spend on it.
You can use any number of things to DIY yourself a chandelier cake stand. People make them with clear serving plates affixed to clear candle holders and then decorated as they see fit with beads, crystals and even miniature chandeliers. If you get creative with plates, and wine glasses, or candlesticks or something else to give it some height, you could make it a multi-level cake stand, then you wouldn’t be limited to using it for cakes, you could use it for cupcakes. Hot glue guns are the best and most important tool for you to have in your arsenal when you are going to make a DIY chandelier cake stand. Because you are going to be using the hot glue to affix the different pieces together to form a completed cake stand, you are going to want to pick materials that won’t melt or burn when the hot glue touches it. This rules out very cheap plastic and a lot of disposable catering plastics. This doesn’t mean that you can’t use anything plastic, it just means it needs to be a more heavy-duty material so you don’t have any problems assembling it.
Another cute DIY chandelier cake is making it actually light up. This can be done by running a cheap battery-powered strand of lights around the edge and letting the light bounce off the chandelier and crystals. This gives it a much more expensive look, and makes it just a little more mesmerizing to your guests. If you are looking to liven it up even more, you could use colored lights, or find crystals and are colored themselves.
Whether you decide to purchase a premade one or go the DIY route, there are literally thousands of different styles of chandelier cake stands or cake plates for you to choose from. The vision you have of a perfect cake plate can be found at a store, or made by hand by you or a friend you know that is extra crafty.
