For a recent wedding I wanted to have 15 floral centerpieces all set on gold pedestal bases, but I wanted those bases to all be a little bit different. First I searched the thrift stores and antique stores and grabbed a few pieces from Floral Supply Syndicate, but I still didn’t have enough variety so I decided to make my own pedestals.
A visit to Goodwill and I grabbed a few mismatched brass candlesticks. Next, I pulled out a few 6″ Lomey Dishes from my supply stash. These Lomey dishes were glued onto the brass candlesticks and painted with Design Master’s Antique Gold. One note, make sure the binding glue is completely dry before spray painting or adding flowers.
Voila, I have new & unique compotes for my floral designs.
