Cupcake stand

I am looking for a cupcake stand that can hold about 150 cupcakes, at least. There will be more, but I figure some can be put on the table. I can only find the cardboard ones, and that isn't going to work because I want to keep it for my daughter's bday parties. HELP!!! PIP or websites would be great!

Thanx!!

  • Check out the Wedding Classifieds or Trash to Treasure board on The Nest. There's tons of stuff for sale on these boards.
  • Found one on ebay made of wood: http://tinyurl.com/3786nm7
    I found this one but It seems rather expensive: http://tinyurl.com/2whbzl7
    A bit cheaper here:

    They are clear acrylic and you don't have to use all the tiers...
    Other thought, could you cover the cardboards ones tp make them look nicer?

    I had a cardboard one for my son's graduation party and it got messy from the icing. I really want to reuse it. I don't think the cardboard ones can/should be reused. Thanx for the other ones. They are pretty pricey. I'm going to keep my eye on the one from ebay though.

  • Let's think about this, really, though.  Are you really going to need a cupcake stand that holds 150 cupcakes for your daughters' birthday parties?  I mean, that seems excessive. 

    Seems like you really only need one that big for one day, so I'd buy the cheapest one I could that doesn't look terrible, and then get a regular one for birthday parties.

    Many of the ones that I have seen have the tiers that are removable. I can use 5 or 2. It's up to the number of cupcakes that I have. Thanx for your help.

  • See if you can rent one from a local catering company.

    I ordered 4 dozen cupcakes and am getting a custom decorated stand for $20 from the bakery.  It is reusable and the perfect size for a birthday party, IMHO.

    I don't get married often, but when I do, I do it in Las Vegas.

  • Look in the Wilton section in your local craft store.  They make a couple of different options.

    However, to handle 150 cupcakes you're going to have to have multiple stands.  A lot of people do just cake pedestal stands stacked on each other, or plates on top of pretty vases, etc.  Somebody purchased a variety of clear glass plates and vases at yard sales/flea markets and used super glue to turn them into tower stands.  It was pretty cute.
