Look! Small table entertaining inspiration

The only way is up! Trying to entertain with a small table can be a challenge. We loved this idea spotted in the latest In-Style Home magazine. They suggested stacking different sized cake stands, inspired by those old tiered tea trays, but with a decidedly more contemporary look. It also allows more table space for dinner plates, and keeps other items up and away, but still accessible. What do you think of this idea? Has anyone tried this?
