Luxe Entertaining: Lucite Cake Stand

As the final days before my wedding approached I felt confident that every detail was thoughtfully planned and ready for execution on our big day!  I spent nearly a year deciding on the venue, hiring the band, picking the menu, choosing the flowers and designing the cake!  But it was only a week before when I realized I hadn't even thought about a stand to display our beautiful wedding cake on!  Oh, those little details that fall through the cracks!!  There are some great options out there, like the more traditional silver cake stands, but I envisioned a simpler, sleeker, little more original look.  I conjured up this idea of a lucite cake stand.  Very simple...just two pieces of lucite stack together.  I called a local resource and order a 16" square piece lucite and a 18" square piece, both 1" thick.  Part of me doubted that this simple solution might not be as effective as I envisioned.  But when I saw the final product on the day of our wedding, I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome! It far exceeded my expectations! Our delicious four tiered, butter cream frosted cake, adorned with fresh peonies looked perfect on top of the lucite creation!  Sometimes the simplest things can make a huge statement!
