A few tricks to remember when decorating: Elevate, stage and accentuate. All describe what a single cake stand­—or footed bowl or compote, for that matter—can do to raise the level of display and design in your home. Think beyond cakes and pies.

Assorted pedestals and footed bowls, $25-$90 each; stone paperweights, $28-$136 each; embroidered cocktail napkins, $12 each; all from Denton Home, SLC
