When it comes to decorating cake stands, the most important detail you have to consider is the design theme. Beyond their practical function, how you decorate your cake stand can raise their visual appeal.

For weddings, surrounding your cake table with an arrangement of roses is an enduring and romantic choice. This adds more depth and character to your cake setup, which can also serve as the centerpiece for your wedding stage.

For minimalist weddings, pair your cake stand with a clean, white linen tablecloth to keep things simple yet endearing. Simplicity is key for a minimalist setup, which is why it is important to use very neat linen on your tables.

Another idea is to incorporate candles and candelabras into your cake stand decor to emphasize the height of your cakes. The height difference can make your stand and cake stand out even more. Just like how adding roses can give more character to your overall design, these table additions can also add sophistication to it.

Coordinating your cake and table linen is also a subtle way to turn your cake decor into a visual centerpiece that will entice your guests. Pair your cake with cupcakes or additional desserts and display them with 3-tier acrylic stands, to create a one-stop dessert station. Sure to satisfy your guests’ sweet tooth. Not only can it serve multiple purposes, but it can also give the impression of having more treats for everyone to make it look grander.

Cake Stand Types

Cake stands come in different shapes, sizes, and materials. Each type of cake stand offers different advantages. Additionally, the way you decorate each one differs.

Clear acrylic cake stands are durable cake stands with a neutral color that can be paired with a variety of design choices. Crystal cake stands offer an elegant touch when displaying cakes at your event and blend well with modern themes.
