They really are so super easy to make that you don't even have to have crafty bone in your body!
Materials: (for one cake stand)
Plastic Plate or Tin Burner Cover for a Stove (either works great)
Spray paint (if you chose to paint the stand)
Painters Tape (if you chose to paint the stand)
Remove all stickers from plate and candle holder. With a damp towel, wipe down bottom of plate and top candle holder and let dry completely. Apply glue according to bottle to the top of the candle holder.
Place plate or burner cover directly in the middle of the candle holder and press firmly. Let sit for at least 24 hours. I used large 3 wick candles to hold the glue in place.
Painting the Cake Stand:
When I purchased the glass candle holders at the dollar store, they wrapped them in paper so they wouldn't clank together. The paper was perfect to cover the plate from the spray paint! I used painters tape and glued all around the plate first, then took my paper and covered the larger areas of the plate I didn't want any paint to get on. For the stands below, I kept my plastic woven plate white and used white and baby pink spray paint for the stand part.
You can see in the bottom right of this picture the finished pink and white stand (and my mom's arm!)
This stand I used a tin burner cover for a stove, which I purchased at the Dollar Store. It was already white so I didn't even have to paint it!
Best part is each cake stand cost me about $2.00 each. I had spray paint, glue and painters tape around the house! Aren't they just so easy and cute to make!

I also couldn't have gotten through these 4 days without the help of my family and friends.
And it really wasn't that hard to make them..
Thank you again for all your support! Until next year!

A few years ago I posted this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Lettuce wraps. But after going to my favorite Thai restaurant I decided to take a crack at their recipe.
1 lb Ground Chicken
4 tsp Sweet Chili Sauce (I use Frank's)
3 tsp Garlic Sriracha Sauce
3 tsp Light Soy Sauce
2 tsp Vegetable Oil
1 head Lettuce
1 Boil in a Bag of Brown or White Rice

We got married at my Catholic church I grew up in. It was a beautiful day and it was absolutely perfect! I just love these pictures of the wedding party outside the church. The colors of the girls dresses against the church is just a perfect contrast!
The readers for the Mass were my godmother, Jill and Joe's godparents who are also his Aunt Libby & Uncle Anthony.
The gifts were presented by Joe's Uncle Danny and Cousin Peter.
I designed the programs which matched our invitations.
Once all pictures were finished outside, we went back into the church and took pictures with our families!
The Stone's- My Family
The Melchionna's- Joe's Dad's Family
The Gerhauser's- Joe's Mom's Family
The kids in the Wedding Party
(this might just be my FAVORITE picture)
Isn't our Church beautiful?
