Creating a Pedestal Bowl for a Candy Buffet

6:02:00 PM

I was in search of clear vessels and pedestal 
dishes for a candy buffet I was planning for 
my daughter's Sweet 16 party.

The thrift store provided me with all kinds of inexpensive
clear vases, glass bowls, and vessels for less than $15.00 total.

I was however still in search of pedestal dishes that I needed to give height to my table display.

I searched my house and decided to use what I had.

When the old light was taken down from my hallway project, I remembered to save the pieces.

Today I flipped the glass globe from the old lighting fixture over and glued it onto another old ceramic light fixture.  

The 2 pieces fit like a glove!

I also used a fishbowl on top of a ceramic cup and a pie plate attached to a repurposed base.

The pedestal bowls were the perfect addition to the candy buffet and the one I made from the light was by far my favorite!

I saved money and time creating the perfect pedestal bowls from what I had.
