When I got to this reception the planner had a couple of cake stand options. One was a wooden stump stand, which we both liked better than the silver stand, but it looked stupid with the cake board sitting on it because the board was a little too big.
We decided to add baby's breath around the base of the cake to disguise the fact that the board was slightly larger than the stump. It worked nicely and matched the rustic feel of the cake and reception.
I'm not saying that you should travel with baby's breath in case of a stump emergency, but it does come in handy.
