Its amazing how different food can look just by serving on a fancy dish.  This is the food before I put in on the dessert server.  Crazy!
 

Ok, stacked dessert servers aren't anything new, these are just my versions.  They say presentation is everything, and it's amazing how much more appetizing the food looks when served on a fancy dish.  Check out the photo of the food before I loaded it up and judge for yourself.

Upyourattic -- I love your idea about filling the glasses before gluing them! I'm going to try that if I make any more.
As for the glue, I used basic 5min. epoxy, the kind where 2 tubes squirt at the same time and you mix together. It was $1.98 at WalMart. You don't need much at all because too much will drip and form strings and you can't get them off. I heard people talk about glass glue, but I don't know what that is and have never seen such a thing. (Of course, I live in a small town and I don't get out much!)
Have fun with your junk!

The glasses could also be filled with small ornaments and then turned over on the plate to add some additional color or sparkle. I'm starting on my Christmas table now and you've inspired me! I saw some glass plates at the Dollar Store ~ hmm, with my odd glasses this will be wonderful! Thanks for sharing! Posted: 9:51 am on November 26th
