Rustic Elegant Dessert Stands

One of my favorite books to read with Lila is a little board book called Flip, Flap, Fly!  I think this must be where I got the idea for a 'little birdie' birthday party. When I started planning the decor, I knew I wanted the color scheme to be shades of light blue and white.  I also wanted to incorporate some natural accents.  A tree slice treat stand seemed like a perfect addition to the dessert table, but I wanted to make it a little more feminine.

I got the tree slices from, but I also found some on  I used some Restoration Hardware candle sticks that I found at Goodwill years ago as the stands.  I almost painted the candle sticks white but I ended up liking the silver with the white wood.

I used some left over interior flat paint mixed with a little water to paint the tree slices.

Here's one holding butterscotch nests!

I'm really happy with how they turned out, and they looked great on the dessert table!
