I've seen a few three tiered stands on Pinterest, like this one: http://thecraftingchicks.com/2011/05/6955.html . I think they are useful, and full of personality. I started shopping around to see what I could find, just keeping an eye out for something that would make this sweet new centerpiece for the table
It's so sweet, now that it's put together. Let's see how I did it.
My original storage solution for the fruit. It's a sturdy green bowl, it does the job, but it's not quite fit for a Queen, is it?
I found these resin plates and pasta bowl at Target on Clearance for 2.67, $.88, and $2.07. I found the glass candle sticks at the Dollar store.
I sent the dishes through the dishwasher, since I will put fruit in my bowl, I wanted it to start out clean. I set up the plates in order, making sure I had enough room in between them.
I used Gorilla Glue to connect the pieces together.
I let it set over night before adding any weight to the stand.
"Here it is the next morning, loaded up with fruit. So, Cheerful!
Let it set, then enjoy!
