Readers of this blog have been inundated recently with post about England’s Regency, Jane Austen, and Regency-era dancing. The Regency Ball we held was a grand success, and I hope to be involved in another one in the future—despite all the very hard work. As a final note, please accept these very simple instructions for making tiered serving plates.
Go to your local thrift store, and find a few charming old ceramic plates that look nice together, in a variety of sizes. Also find a few candlesticks that have a decent amount of surface area on the bottoms as well as the tops. These will become the pillars holding up the plates.
Buy some heavyweight craft glue—we used E6000 from Michaels arts and crafts store, although we nearly went for Gorilla Glue.
Then, simply follow the instructions in this video!
And here are the final products:
We auctioned them off during a silent auction held at the Regency Ball. All of them went quickly! Nice to see that the time we put into picking out pretty plates didn’t go to waste—now I will have to make another one to keep for myself!
