Cake Platter From Goodwill Finds


Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! We had (and are still having) a great long weekend. We started out by driving across the state to Pullman, Washington to kick off College Game Day at Washington State University. It was so much fun taking Baby E to her first football game and showing her where her Daddy went to school.

Now onto other exciting news. I LOVE to bake and sadly my favorite cake platter shattered while transporting it in the car a little while ago. I knew baking a cake was in my near future so I decided to see what I could come up with. For one of my baby showers, a friend of mine took an old goblet and a plate and turned it into a beautiful serving dish and I loved how it turned out, so I took a trip to the Goodwill and see if I could find anything fun to work with.

Lookie what I found! A antiqued goblet for $1.99 and a china plate for $.99! I originally wanted something more colorful and mix matched, but I had to work with the pieces that I found.

When I got home I turned the plate over and noticed the brand so I decided to Google it and see how much the plate retailed for…

…and would you believe that a replacement for the Skaura Classic Gold dinner plate ranges from $9.99-$12.99 online! And let me remind you that I paid only $.99 for it :)

After cleaning the plate and the goblet I used some heavy duty multi-use glue to secure the goblet onto the plate.

The project took ten minutes and cost me a whole $2.98!

I can definitely see some decadent desserts on this pretty little thing in the near future.

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend. I’ll be back tomorrow with another week of Top 10 Tuesday!
