Invented by our Dad

Our Dad, Knight Merritt, a man with a generous heart and a penchant for heartfelt gestures, always prioritizes making his family and friends feel cherished. For Knight, celebrating loved ones' milestones in a grand manner is essential. When a dear friend of his turned 80, Knight sought to commemorate the occasion in a significant way. Faced with the challenge of fitting 80 candles on a cake, Knight, leveraging his skills as a custom model builder and expert craftsman, crafted a three-tiered candle platform that encircled the cake, holding all 80 candles. This innovation turned the party into an extraordinary event, with guests eagerly capturing the joyous moments and the guest of honor's beaming smile.

Since then, requests for Knight's unique Stadiums have poured in. We are thrilled to now offer these spectacular and fun party centerpieces to you, adding a touch of magnificence to your celebrations.
