Ohhh I like the fabric idea a lot. Both are good ideas though. The book one to me is very unique and I am liking the spaced cakes /different height the more I see it. I also did not want to pay for/ rent a cake stand so we made one. Ours was just a base of pale pink carnations, kind of looked like a 4th layer to the cake.

I love the books idea. Another one is maybe a picture frame on top of the book stack, or even just the glass from the picture frame, you could glue to the top book. Shiny doesn’t tend to photograph the same way we see it, so I’d stay away from that if there will be any chance of flash photography 🙂

I like the books idea too!

We did the different level boxes under the table cloth.. here’s a couple pics for a visual! I know being able to see something REALLY helped me. =)
