When I was young, birthday dinners were chosen by the honoree. We got to pick the entire menu and it was served on a birthday plate that let everyone at the table know that it was your special day. I loved that my plate was different than the others. And with that tiny gesture, a typical family dinner was turned into a treasured memory.Jenny Blasen has done the same with her Star Flower Cupcake Stand, created initially to make her daughter's birthday a memorable one. Perfectly sized to fit one cupcake, it is the bright highlight to any birthday girl's plate. Each handmade piece at Jenny Blasen Pottery exudes that same warmth, making it feel like it was given the extra care that I imagine that first cupcake stand was made with.
