At my wedding I am having a dessert buffet with lots of mini cupcakes, and I love the look of old cake plates. I need to find 6-8 cake plates in varying sizes & colors. I’m looking for depression glass, milk glass and ceramic, in pale pink, peach and pale blue. I’ve tried looking everywhere I can think of and I haven’t found many good ones. You guys are so good at finding things online – please help me!

Ebay has a bunch of milk glass ones! I think they’re a bit expensive for what they are, though.

Have you tried Goodwill? I always see cake plates there under $10. If there are any thrift stores around you could check there as well.
I’ve made my own cake/serving plates before from Goodwill buys like plates, candle holders and a little epoxy.

Try http://www.etsy.com, some of it may be pricey but it’s all one of a kind. Plus you could give them away to family members that helped out with planning the wedding.

All three are great ideas! I live in the city so I’ll have to search and see where a goodwill is… or maybe check it out when I visit my parents. Thanks! Please let me know if anyone else has another idea, or if you’ve seen any especially great ones!

Def eBay, Goodwill, Salvation Army and hit up those garage/yard sales this summer! You have plenty of time!
