Tiered Cupcake Stand

We've all seen these adorable cupcake stands made out of vintage plates and inexpensive glass candleholders, and most of us have even created one or two. They add some cottage sweetness to any party, shower, or just for display.

Opening my new May 2012 Country Living UK magazine, this image was one of the first I saw. Not just one or two stacked plates, but a tiered cupcake stand made out of multiple layers of mismatched vintage plates and saucers, topped off with a delicate cup to contain those individual goodies that might otherwise escape.

With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, I thought this would be a fun addition to a feminine buffet layout. Then surprise Mom and send it home with her, being sure to include just a few extra bites of those delicious confections. 

You can also shop for Mother's Day from some of my
 wonderful sponsors on my sidebar. 
And speaking of shopping,
 remember to check out the great items listed from yesterday on
 Monday Marketplace.
The link party is open all week.
