diy tiered treat stand
This tiered treat stand, from Martha Stewart, would be perfect for Mother’s Day filled with treats or for any special occasion. It’s so easy to make, you only need disposable plates and cups and some hot glue! They suggest using “Bare” by Solo for the paper goods, but there are so many types of decorative party supplies, you could easily find the perfect ones to complement your event. They also carefully measure where to glue it on, but I think i would just eyeball it! Since there are a lot of the cups and plates in the packages, it would be nice to make several of these and have lots of treats displayed on them. Plus, they could match the guests’ tableware, also! The treat stand would also look great on a party dessert table!
