I planned a vintage tea party for my 18th birthday, but struggled to find cake stands to match my theme. I bought some old plates from charity shops, then carefully drilled holes in the centre of the plates with a tile drill bit. I put cake stand fittings through the holes and screwed them into place. My stands look lovely and were very cheap to make.
