The Vintage Dish Dessert Tower

A couple of years ago I planned a surprise birthday party for my mother-in-law.  The theme was Vintage Garden Tea Party. Planning this event got my "hands-on" creative juices flowing.  Up until then, I expressed most creativity through writing.

One of my favorite projects that I created for this party was a serving platter made from vintage plates and tea cups.

The original "Vintage Dish"

It was such a hit that I made some to sell at Aqua Seventy6's very first trunk show.

Here are a few others:

These serving towers dress up any dessert table.  I've used mine at birthday parties, baby showers, holidays and even at an informal get together.

The only drawback is that they're pretty heavy and don't ship well.  However, I'd be happy to create one for anyone in the Richmond, VA area.  Email me at the address above for pricing information.

  1. Hi,
    What a fantastic idea! We will be hosting a high tea at our hotel and I've decided to make these instead of spending a load of money and buying them.
    Just wondering did you glue the plates together, & which glue did you use?
