Valentine’s Day Arrangement
Make your cake stand “stand out” from the crowd this Valentine’s Day with our super-simple centerpiece idea. We've selected our Biltmore Beaded Cake Stand as a base for its even, reflective surface and pretty beaded detailing that complements any décor.
Biltmore Beaded Cake Stand
6 fresh roses
2 votive candles
6–8 votive holders (various colors/sizes)
1 larger pillar candle and candle stand
Metallic hearts or other decorative elements
Place a large candle on a candle holder atop the cake stand to create a focal point. We chose a multi-colored (shades of brown) glass candle stand to add height and texture to the centerpiece.
Arrange small votive holders around the cake stand. (We used a mix of clear and antiqued finish holders.) Add votive candles to 2 holders; fill the others with water.
Trim roses, leaving a 2-inch stem on each. Tuck them into the water-filled votive holders.
Scatter metallic hearts or other decorative elements and tuck foil-covered chocolates between the candles in any remaining space.
