My colleague Sam and I are organising a retro tea party in aid of womens cancers. We will be serving Fairtrade refreshments and cakes and are trying to make it as pretty and feminine as we can. Ages ago I bought a pile of tea plates and matching saucers from a jumble sale for £1. With the addition of a cake stand fitting from Ebay I made this pretty little cake stand. I will make a few more before the event as I really love the outcome. I will be searching jumble sales for pretty plates from now on.
Oh and if you try this put a splash of water on the plate/saucer and only drill in short bursts or the china will overheat and crack. BE CAREFUL, electricity and water don't mix.
