At Liv's last birthday I challenged myself to pull together a party with some creative touches for under $100. The big hit of the party was the ice cream sandwich "cake" and roll your own toppings bar. I piled the ice cream sandwiches into a 2 tier cake which of course needed a a cake stand! I was wandering around Home Depot hoping inspiration would hit and found myself in the tile aisle inspecting the fauxe marble tiles. A helpful Home Depot guy came by and asked if he could help... I'm not afraid of being the crazy lady with a wacky DIY idea so I told him what I had in mind, he whipped out a sharpie, wrote "sample" on the back of the tile I picked out, and I walked out with the top of my cake stand for free! Some spray paint, a pillar candle stick I had in my home decor stash, some industrial adhesive, and a papaer and ribbon bunting later I had the perfect and virtually free cake stand!
