Hello everyone!  How is your weekend going?  Can’t believe there was a slight snow-fall this morning!  Everything looks like SPRING, but the temperatures sure don’t reflect the same…..

I bought two glass Hurricane domes a while ago, but needed bases for them both.  Something that the diameter of the dome would fit.

With a bit of searching, and some inginuity, I found a very simple Oriental wall plaque that just fit the bill……

The candles and the domes fit perfectly on the glass dish…

I used them for a period of time as is, but wanted to use them in June, coming, for the “White Effect” Dinner in Niagara-On-The-Lake.  My husband and I went last year by ourselves.  This year we are going back with another couple.  See the official video of last year’s dinner here…..For this dinner, you have to take your own table linens, table decor, and dishes.  Food can be ordered from about 5 participating restaurants, or you can take your own.   The whole dinner is held outside…..

The glass domes would stop the breeze from blowing the candles out.  I also needed to get some white candles instead of the green ones.  As the bases are so dark, I thought painting them silver, ( I didn’t have white paint readily available), would make them blend into the white decor far better than the dark brown.  Plus, I think they would suit for other occations too!

I actually used chalk paint as a primer.  It covered the glass and the wood.

I then gave them one quick coat of silver…..

Along with silver chargers, the painted bases mix wonderfully with this table decor.  This is a practice run for the table decor for the “White Effect” Dinner.

I’ll get my girl-friend to set up her table as well, and we’ll see what we can merge together. 

 I know this center piece looks really huge, but some of the tables from last year were set up like a wedding…..Again, here is the video, so take a gander……

Hopefully, there will be NO MORE SNOW……..Until next time, Judy
