If you had not noticed, cake stands are popping up everywhere! They are an essential to any dessert table and or candy bar.

I particularly am head over heals in love with the do-it-yourself cake stands out their! Gather yourself some cool found objects from your house, thrift shop, dollar store, outside and glue…And you have yourself a very clever stand!

Well this all appears to be quite simple, not to mention a brilliant way to add that personalized touch to a party. So when we saw customers and part planners transforming our cardboard blumeboxes into cake stands we were quite impressed.

So here you have one easy, cost effective, and customizable DIY cake stand tutorial!

With cold weather comes the holidays, and we could not be more excited to start entertaining. After endless “ahhh” inspiring hours of scouring Pinterest for amazing holiday ideas, we have built ourselves a fab Holiday Inspiration Board, that bookmarks ideas we hope to use someday!

We melted over these snowman doughnut holes and were excited to re-create them to fit into our new cake pop/lollipop inserts! This is a very simple, fun and fabulous kid appropriate cooking project that would make a great addition to a holiday hot chocolate table!

Dessert tables and candy bars have become a very popular addition to parties and blumebox is excited to announce the release of our cake pop/lollipop insert, that is ideal for displaying all things sweet on a stick. Just like all other blumebox products, the insert easily pops into place and has been designed to fit securely inside our standard 4″ cube blumebox. With 13 holes to select from, the insert displays a good number of sweets. But if you should need more, simply add another 4″ cube and cake pop/lollipop insert and cluster the boxes together with ribbon.

The holiday season is all about sweet delicacies, so consider adding a stick to your desserts and displaying them in the eco-chic cake pop/lollipop insert and blumebox cubes. For ordering these fabulous, new cake pop/lollipop inserts, contact us.

Please note that you will want to find a fun filler that covers the top of the eco-friendly, kraft cardboard insert! In this project we relied on mini marshmallows.

Goods Needed: powdered mini doughnut holes, candy corn, chocolate chips, chocolate jimmies, marshmallows, lollipop sticks, 4″ cube blumeboxes, NEW blumebox cakepop/lollipop insert.

Couture Parties blog has some of the most inspiring posts and this Retro Pink Bicycle Birthday Party is no acception.

The silver, green and pale pink palette makes for such a fun and elegant celebration for this dessert birthday party.  The mixture of floral arrangements and candy bouquets to the desserts themselves, makes this dessert table absolutely adorable!

Stephanie used 4″ pretty n pink blumebox cubes decorated with sage green ribbon that was tied off with a silver tassel. These decorations were stuffed with plastic grass, topping off the centers with a giant colorful swirl lollipop.

The silver cube floral arrangements were designed in 6″silver cube ceramic vases. To recreate this floral design you could use our 4″ silver satin cube blumebox.

Keep in mind that this party could easily be transformed into a baby boy or baby neutral baby shower by using blues or yellows or greens.
