This one was the that chippy metal base...
Im not thrilled about the drawer pull on this one...Ill be on the look out for one that would be better suited for this piece...
Added to the mix...a old grate under a glass plate and anther glass light shade balancing in one of the cool disk spacers I got from our friend Gretchen...LOVE them :)
My original plan was to take pictures before the party but got distracted when my guests started to arrive...I guess youll have to settle for the reinactment...minus the tastey treats :)

It was "Love at First Sight" when I saw Kathy's award winning light fixture serving piece...

I immediatley ran to my basement to see what I could pull together for a "Girl's Night" I hosted last weekend.  Here's what I came up with...they were a real hit!  Thanks Kathy!!!

Bet the gals loved your junk style serving pieces and I'm sure the goodies you served on them were great too. Glad to see you're enjoying the disk spacers we traded. I'm down to just 2 of them left. Kind of fun and love the grates I got in a trade from you. Plan to use them for the holidays.

RustyDiva writes: You did a great job putting your own spin on Kathy's idea. I love the silver based one with the star shade! They really look pretty on your serving table and I'm sure they were the hit of the get~together! Once again, I'll never look at lamp shades the same again!

shabbychick writes: Laurel - you really did those serving dishes up right (and I bet the treats WERE tasty as well)! I'm sure you got lots of compliments from your friends too.

My favorite is the one on the silver base - but, they're all so sweet! I love how we inspire each other and then come up with creations that show our own style.

Very nice job! Thanks for sharing!


P.S. Now...I want to have a party!! Posted: 8:18 pm on September 28th
