Victoria and Albert cake stand with hatbox
 When I was asked to do a review for CSN Stores,  I looked through their online catalogue and was immediately drawn to the pretty china cake stands,  they satisfied my love of china and my love of old fashioned pretty roses etc.  I can think of plenty of ideas for the cake stands other than placing cupcakes on them.  For instance,  arranging jewellery on them in the bedroom.  Especially on the black Victoria and Albert 'Brocade'. Or in the bathroom,  with cotton balls and little soaps.  There are endless possibilities!

The fact that they come in 'hatboxes' makes me happy too,  as I love boxes, especially round ones.

My attention was drawn to the tablemats which are so shabby chic/French.  I love them,  and might just buy them myself!

Have a fantastic weekend.  Autumn is definitely here,  a nip in the air,  falling leaves, an anticipation of Winter.  Like life,  all is change.................


  1. Hi Jacqui, I love the cake stands too. Especially the Brompton Rose one. The placemat is also wonderful. *hugs*

  2. I find also that it is the perfect objet, so elegant , and those, with flowers are exquisite.
    Merci beaucoup Jacqui to come to see l'atelier Flont!!.A bientôt. Helen
