Wood Expressions

This has been a month full of birthday parties for our family.  My two oldest boys and my husband all have April birthdays, and yesterday was the last one (sorry for disappearing).  A few months ago, I came across Wood Expressions on Etsy and instantly fell in love with their beautiful hand turned wood items.  They were kind enough to to send me a mini cake and cupcake pedestal from their shop–just in time for the birthdays.  Here is a look at the yummy spread we enjoyed yesterday for my husband’s birthday.




My husband’s birthday fall the day after my son’s birthday, so usually by the time it rolls around, I am so exhausted from the kids party and festivities, that he gets a little short changed.  Most years, we just put some candles on the leftover cake from the day before and call it good.  This year I stepped it up and got him his own mini birthday cake.  These stands gave me the perfect way to display the yummy treats.


Here are a few more lovely cake stands from their shop.

I just love cake stands and pedestals because not only are they great for displaying food, they are fun to use in decorating.  You could use them for candles, corralling jewelry, and more.  And these items are top notch!  They are very lightweight and the detail and wood grain are incredible.  They are so beautiful to look at.

Here are few more of my favorite items from their shop.
