Well, everyone, we are back from our 1oth Anniversary Weekend Getaway to beautiful L'Auberge du Lac in Lake Charles, LA. Might I say, we had the most wonderful and relaxing time. I will post about this later...but now....on to the cake plate.
Remember how I bought these at the thrift store?
Well, I decided to use the taller candle holder, which incidentally has a half used candle built into it, and the black swan plate. Speaking of Black Swan...has anyone seen that movie yet? I am dying to see it so DON'T TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS!!!!!!
I was out of red paint, but after a quick trip to Walmart and 96 cents later...yes the spray paint was 96 cents!!!!!, these little items were ready to be transformed into this...
It turned out great. Since Jansen is just going to have a small 6 inch lego man cake for himself, I didn't need anything really big or fancy. I just wanted something with a little detail.
So here is the before and after shot. See the candle holder I chose? Cute enough on it's own but WAY cuter as the pedestal for the cake plate!
This red color should definitely be called Lego Red instead of just Red. Yes my friends, this one is labeled "red". BORING.
I can't wait to see how it looks with the lego cake on it!!!!! Total cost for this was under $3 for the plate, candle holder, and paint! Now that is a good deal!!!
