I love to Entertain and I have a HUGE love for serving platters!! I wanted to create something Fun and Spring like for my next batch of Cupcakes (which will be Super Cute so get your cupcake pans out!) I had a few cans of spray paint in the basement and a couple of Flower buckets that would be perfect for Pops. So I was left with Trays to build....I headed to the Dollar Store and purchased 6 platters and 4 candle holders for a Grand total of $10 dollars! I cant believe that I was able to have Two 3 trier serving platters and 3 Decorative Buckets that all fit the Spring Theme for only $10 DOLLARS!! What's even better is if you are bringing a Dish or dessert to a friends house for a get together, party or BBQ you wont feel like you need to get your dishes back and I'm sure your Host will be Super excited to get a Wicked Cute Serving platter...which literally only cost you a few dollars!! Plus if you have someone who is a good painter...Hi Ryan ;) (that's my brother) They can paint "Themed" ideas onto your platters. Talk about a real conversation starter when you have custom hand crafted serving trays at your event!! I have a couple ideas in mind for my next batch of trays..... :o) But take a look at My Spring/Summer Trays for the Happy warm days to come....


All the serving platters spray painted well...The yellow did take two coats but literally dried in 8 minutes!! Once they were all dry I took them inside and put four marks on the center of the trays and placed a little hot glue on the candle holders!!

I thought it was Pretty exciting that they Matched my Painting in the Dinning Room too!! :o)

What kind of spray paint should I use? Are those platters plastic?

Sarah Renee said...

Hi Rosa, I just used some spray paint I had in my Basement (I purchased it at Home Depot awhile back)I think around $4 dollars a can. I'm sure any kind would work :o) The platters I bought from the dollar tree are plastic and I also did use some old white plates that I had as well (for the yellow ones)The Plastic ones definitely worked better than the plates:o)

I did this as well but when I spray painted my candleholders, they came out with a really rough finish. Not smooth and shiny. What did I do wrong???

Sarah Renee said...

Hmmmm...I'm wondering if it may have been your spray paint. I did try to do this for a holiday party and used a different brand spray paint in Gold and it did not adhere to the Glass Candle holders well at all!! I needed three coats and even then they looked "clumpy." Hope that helps :o)

Thanks for the great idea, and keeping some money in my pocket for other wants/needs! I love displaying all the little treats & cupcakes, etc. but only have one cake pedestal currently. I've been looking for additional ones, and ones with multiple tiers. By the time I got a few for the festive table for my daughter's birthday Mad Hatter tea party, I would have probably spent over $100 and been super bummed if a youngin accidentally knocked it over, dinged it, you never know.... I believe the class dome on my other pedestal was actually broken by my boyfriend. hmph. Thanks again!

Sarah Renee said...

You are so welcome Erica!! :) ha and I hear ya. ;)

Heather Gaige said...

About how many cupcakes do the 3 tier hold? I plan on trying this for my sons birthday party coming up :)thanks for the great idea!

Sarah Renee said...

Thank you Heather :) I could fit 7 around the bottom an middle and about 10 on the top :)

Heather Gaige said...

Thanks! I am excited.. just picked up the stuff to make them today!

I was curious if you used a clear coat on them at all . I want to make some but switch it up a bit for a Pirate themed birthday party but i am not sure if i need to grab a clear coat for them or not .

Sarah Renee said...

I didn't. I did it the cheap easy way. Although they say you should spray it with a clear coat of a certain "food safe" protector but I wasn't putting food directly on the spray painted part because all the up cakes had wrappers on them. I think you could get away with no clear coat if you do it that way :) hope that helps. Pirate themed parties are so cute, have fun!!!! :) -Sarah with an H
