things i'm loving 'pop up cake stands'

Greetings all,
This week for Paisley Jade's Things I'm Loving . . . it's pop up cake stands, flat pack party magic!!  I ordered these wholesale & sold out on the first day (including my display model for $5 off), so i ordered twice as many, they arrived this week, glee!!  I'll have them in my on line shop shortly but wow wee, they are so gorgeous had to share now!!
I've got the whole collection of cake plates, doilies, paper garlands, platters, lanterns, cake flags & tablecloths which match, for the most pretty perfect party.  I can't wait for my girls to have their next party or talk my son into having a high tea for his birthday??!!  They are gorgeous for baby showers, cocktail parties too.  Next week our high school is having a bake sale, just wondering if i should lend them some??  They might be cardboard but they are wipe clean & even i don't have one yet!! 
Sorry about picture quality, i took them 2 weeks ago with the old camera just before it had it's final death nell of being dropped & broken, lens fully extended open (just to make it look even more broken!!)  New camera (Nikon Coolpix S5100) the 4th one in our family is going great.
Wishing you all lovely Fridays, i'm again, exhausted from another week of cleaning my studio, extra school activities, late nights & shaking my bottom at the gym, ready for the weekend - where i'll be finishing off my studio, school assignments & homework + the gym, i plan the late nights to involve lounge craft relaxation.  Tee hee, love Posie
PS thank you for all the very lovely comments on my studio sacrifice post yesterday, i really appreciate them & never thought an image of an empty room (albeit a craft space) would attract so much interest!!  Stay tuned, Friday is devoted to getting my studio back in order, i'm working hard to meet my self imposed deadline, which is keeping me on track & motivated!!

I love cake stands! My mum has one that is 50 years old, and I was always after her to get it out and use it!
I love the idea of cardbaord ones for out door parites, and yours look sweet. x

They really are fancy pants aren't they. Perfect for a girly afternoon tea.

Thanks for showing us the real life mess of moving. I too buy presents and put them away and them let the kids have them anyway. I was so happy to see your clutter. Makes me feel much better about mine.
Can't wait to see the fancy shelving though!

I almost cannot believe they are cardboard, they are pretty with a capital P!
Lovely Posie, thank you for sharing :o)

I have one of those cake stands. I bought it in a cute little homewares shop in Brighton last year, with a two years olds birthday party in mind. When the birthday party came round I got a bit precious about greasy two year old fingerprints and so kept it safely tucked away in its packet and bought them some plastic plates instead!! I know, bad mother.....But at least I still have a pristine and beautiful cake stand!!! x
