Cake stands aren’t just for dessert anymore. Use a pedestal plate to hold jewellery and perfume bottles in a bathroom, corral cups of pens in a pretty home office or try this show-stopping floral centrepiece. Place a glass vase inside a larger one, nestle snapdragons between the layers and pop a candle inside. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!
