When my daughter was married, someone warned me that the caterer I had
hired presented a "flat" table. It didn't mean much to me at the time.
Until I saw it. Yikes. Everything, and I mean EVERY DISH was set flat
on the table. And you know if you’re standing, you have to look way
down to see the food from the top. How boring and uninspired. That's
when I realized how important it is to vary the height of dishes for
food presentation. Now, whenever I put food out for my guests, I always
vary the height of the serving dishes. If I have enough food variety, I
try for low, medium, and high. It makes my guest's food selections so
much more appealing. So learn from my mistake--never be accused of
having a "flat" table!
This Victorian-style pedestal food server
has a low profile, but not FLAT. And because the plate is so large and it can hold a lot, it is appropriate that it has a lower profile It is
five and a half inches high, and gets the plate off the table just
right to put toward the front of your food display.
So if you go to all the trouble to prepare food for your
guests, don’t you want it to look its best? This plate has divisions
that make it perfect to present any kind of finger food. . . appetizers.
. . cheese and crackers. . . small desserts. . . vegetables and dip. . .
. you can honor the divisions on the plate or ignore them as I have
shown in the photo with all the vegetables. I love this piece. If it
doesn’t sell fast, I may just have to keep it for myself!
2 pieces of re-purposed glass and crystal

A blue and gold cake stand sounds like the perfect decoration for a
Navy wedding. And it could be. But it is also just a sharp color
combination! The six-sided base has eight-pointed stars like the
mariner's compass. The blue is deep, rich, and opaque. And the plate
has gold-plated arrows, pointing in the directions of where life may
take you. Made with five pieces of abandoned glass, rescued and given a
new life. 19.5 inches tall 14" diameter plate with an ever so slight slope of 1/2"
As I designed this piece, I
was thinking of a novel I read ages ago in which a man traveled to the
late 1800s and fell in love with a woman named Laura. It was a simpler
time when life was lived by candlelight and the home environment was
elegant and beautiful. I can't promise time travel, but "The Laura" is
reminiscent of a time of beauty and elegance. 12.5" tall x 10 plate diameter

and pears, grapes and strawberries, oh my! Food images of times past are embossed all over this creation. Made with two pieces of vintage
glassware, this pedestal stand is perfect for ripening fruits or
vegetables on the counter, or to present appetizers or sweets when

cupcakes or cake display. Great addition to vintage, shabby chic, or
