AT:LA reader Smita asks us: What is that blue thing under the vase called? Where can I find it? Any pointers about where to find the vase would be helpful as well. Thanks, Smita Dear Smita, We're 99.9% sure it's a cake stand--and 60% sure it's vintage. And we're 100% sure that we love this alternate use as a plant pedestal. We found some similar items on eBay (like here and here). But if you're looking for something newer, there's also the classic cake stand from Nigella Lawson (comes in beautiful robin's egg blue!) or Martha Stewart's version in cream. Anyone else have any suggestions?
