Polka Dot Treat Stand

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter – you know that a couple weeks ago I went to a fun little blogging retreat called Breathing Space in Daybreak! We got to stay in model homes with fun roomies and I had a blast! On Friday night my roomies and I hit up Harmons for some snacks and we stumbled upon some really cute plates – polka dot plates! I can’t remember who, but someone suggested we all make cupcake stands – being probably the only person in the world to have never made one – I was all for it! But then I spotted the fun little bowls and my mind started thinking of all the great things you could put in a bowl! So we decided to make {Treat} stands instead!



There were a few different colors but I decided to go with green because I am loving this color lately! You can pair it with pink for a girls party or a turquoise for a little {or big} boy party – I mean, any color really is awesome with green apple!!
Oh how I love polka dots!!

I love how it turned out and made a simple little tutorial for you to make one too!!

How to make a treat stand

1. I found a fun large plate, a small plate and a bowl!
2. I used candlesticks from Dollar Tree and using White {Rust-Oleum} Spray paint, gave them a few good coats.
3. Using E-6000 I glued the candlesticks and the plates together – in the middle!!
4. I let it dry for a couple hours and was done!

Easy Peasy!!

What do you think?
I am thinking Fruit and a Yummy Dip!
Or Nachos and Cheese!
Or Veggies and a Dill Dip!

Love how yours turned out and we had the same ideas on fruit and veggie platters :). It was so fun to meet you and talk with you at all hours of the night at breathing space!

I love how your stand turned out. Yours totally reminds me of Spring. Looking at all our stands makes me want to have a party. Thanks for being an awesome roomie and for the talks. I hope things are going well with your family.

I loved seeing how each one of your turned out, they are all lovely. If they have this conference next year, would you let me know via email? It sounded like a lot of fun.

Love all those cute treat stands! Breathing Space sounds like it was a blast, and I was sad that it was scheduled the weekend my son got baptized. Hopefully they do it again1

Found you through A Little Tipsy! Thanks for the tutorial. I want to make a fruit stand now! Much easier and prettier way to have all your fruit out for people to eat, plus it separates it from each other.
