Pie Chandelier Display

IMG_4586On Saturday we had the honor to serve the lovely Holly and Ryan 15 delicious pies at their adorable country wedding. The colors and flavors were gorgeous, ranging from strawberry rhubarb to apple streusel, berry, and peach bourbon. The only tricky part was Ā “how to fit 15 pies on 1 dessert table?” Our awesome intern, Annie-Kate had a genius idea- use a chandelier!! That’s right- buckle up as we take you on our transformation now…

IMG_4588Step one: unscrew light fixtures

IMG_4590Step two: snip away the inner guts of the lamp (aka the cords- no need anymore!)

IMG_4594Step three: next we did some problem solving, using all the hardware from the lamp- we took the center wand and thread on a bolt and then used the bowl-like cover to make the stand look better.

IMG_4596IMG_4597Step four: spin away with the other fixture to use as a bolt to hold bottom piece together.

IMG_4599see? voila!

IMG_4600okay, looking good so far….now for the arms of the chandelier

IMG_4601step five: time to take out the porcelain lightbulb fixtures

IMG_4602Step six: remove all wires from center

IMG_4603Now it’s time to start glueing the plates! We decided to use the glass light fixture on a few of the arms to add vertical height to the display and then plates won’t hit each other.

IMG_4604We used epoxy for the glass

IMG_4605Then we spray painted the chandelier with antique white.
