What To Do With Cake Stands?

I don't know about you but we have three cake stands in our home.  Way more than one person needs.  Although they do come in handy around the holiday time, the rest of the year they just sit in my cabinets.

I recently bought this great hutch/wine cabinet that matched our kitchen table in the clearance center at RC Willey.  I loved this piece at the price was really great.  Once we got it into the home I had no idea what to place on the top of it.

While cleaning out our kitchen cabinets I found my large cake stand that turns into a punch bowl and two little cake stands left from our wedding.  These three great pieces take up tons of precious storage space in my kitchen.  As you see we don't have much cabinet space.

I decided to display the cake plates year around on my new hutch.  Not only did it free up two cabinets but I also got to display some of my glass pieces.

To finish up my display I found these great prints at Homegoods for $15.99 each.  I think they are really nice and add to the final look of this previous empty corner.

Next time you are looking for decor for your kitchen, look around your cabinets for items you can display and use in your kitchen.  Double duty decor not only saves money but can save space in your kitchen cabinets.
