I can't even begin to explain how cute this stand was. She did a great job! At first, I thought it was a bit pricey but ultimately, I ordered it and when I received it I really liked it. I would definitely recommend this seller to other people searching for a custom stand. I would definitely order again.
I LOVE planning a great party!
Well it all started about 2 and a half years ago. I was planning my sons first birthday party and I don't know about you, but 1st birthdays around here are a pretty big deal!!! I wanted the theme to be safari animals and the colors to be baby blue and brown! I found super cute plates, napkins, and cups from a random online store. The only problem with buying that type of stuff is that it's hard find anything to match. I looked high and low trying to find a cute display for the adorable cupcakes I wanted to make, but couldn't find anything I liked. So, I decided to make my own! After having a ton of fun making it and receiving lots of compliments on it from the party guests I thought I might be on to something. I knew there had to be other moms out there like me who enjoy and have fun planning their children's party's! But i knew that if I was going to start selling cupcake stands on line I would need to make them easy to ship. I began designing the entire stand myself with Masonite plates, wooden dowels, and screws. The entire stand was designed to be disassembled for easy shipping and storage. After designing the stand I then began decorating them with rhinestones, ribbon, etc. After about two months or so of selling on Etsy my family took a vacation and while on vacation I contracted a serious eye infection (while being 5 months pregnant). It was pretty severe to the point that the dr's were concerned I'd lose my vision. So needless to say my cute little Etsy business was the last thing on my mind. I had no doubt that in my mind though that I'd be ok because I believe in a great God who answers prayer! So, I put the business on hold. My eye began to heal, I had my son Paul and I focused on being the best wife and mother I could be! About a year and a half after Paul was born the creative itch in my blood came back! I knew that I loved designing but didn't enjoy the frustrating part of making the stands from scratch so this time around I decided to design pre-made cardboard stands! My supplier is right here in the U.S.A! The coolest and most exciting part about my newest idea is that I've designed the plates with a decorative laminate. Obviously laminate is waterproof so after using your cupcake stand for your party or event (we all know those cupcakes can fall over and make a mess leaving frosting and crumbs) it can be washed with soap and water and put away to use for your next event! I'm also in the process of making them REVERSIBLE!!! For all those momma's who don't want to spend the money on a superman stand because they know there son will be over it after a few months, I will be creating a stand that when you flip the plate over it will have a more elegant design for Momma's next party!! So there you have it! That's the story about how it all began! I take pride in what I do and enjoy every bit if it! Oh and for those of you who are wondering...my eye has a tiny little scar on it which isn't at all noticeable and I can see 20/30 out of it (I was seeing 20/200 yes 200 a few weeks after the infection)!!
Hope you enjoyed my story! Visit my shop often for new listings! And don't forget I LOVE custom orders... Let me know what you have in mind and I'd love to be able to design it with you!

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
