Served With Style - Edition 4
EDITION 4 : GOING ROUND AND ROUND
Countless times, clients request the meal served at their event be done so family style. While accommodating their request, we think about a design that will incorporate a large dramatic centerpiece to fill the center of the table. To be mindful of client requests without sacrificing event design, we go round and round to get creative! Custom Lazy Susan centerpieces are crafted to accomplish both goals!
1.We start with a heavy metal base plate and a flange attached to the center of the plate. A metal gas pipe that has been threaded at the top and bottom screws into the flange.
2. A 16" x 16" x 6" tall lucite box is created with a center hole that slides over the metal pipe. You can fill the lucite box with decorative items if desired.
3. Next, cut out a 30" round piece of 3/4" plywood that also has a center hole. Lazy Susan hardware is attached to the underside of the plywood. The hardware can easily be found at a home improvement store, such as Home Depot or Lowe's. The plywood circle slides over the pole resting on the lucite box.
4. The top of the pole also gets a flange attached which holds an 8” round wooden desk that can accommodate any type of desired centerpiece.
The cool thing about these being custom designed, is they can be installed 6"-7" above the table top which makes it easy for guests to reach the platters of food. I usually try to choose shorter glassware rather than tall, as well as stemmed crystalChrystal to help the serving process for the guests and the staff.
