Believe it or not, when cake stands aren't used to showcase sweet treats and frosted goodies, it's a great double duty household item. From being a great replacement for fruit bowls to makeshift makeup drawers and vases—it's impossible to run out ways to use this kitchen staple. To inspire you, here are new and inventive ways to use cake stands around the house: 

Holding a tea party for your best girlfriends? Put together a centerpiece that perfectly fits the occasion. Use cups in pastel colors and floral prints for an all-out feminine vibe. 

If you need a place to store a bunch of lipsticks and other makeup items, a cake stand will be a handy addition to your vanity. Make sure to pick items with the best packaging so your organizer can double as a decor piece. 

Cake stands are great substitutes for baskets, too. Display a mix of pears, apples, and oranges on your dining table so your family can easily grab a healthy snack whenever they need it. 

These arrangements aren't just for special events, you can bring these into your home to brighten up your living area, too. Change the type of fresh blooms once or twice a month to keep the look fresh. 

Here's a bonus minimal Christmas decor idea! Create a mini vignette on a cake stand using treats for an interesting welcoming piece for guests. You can even include lights to add extra sparkle.
