Working Designer Wednesday: Pedestal Sources And Window Display Blogs

I loved this comment to yesterday’s post about square columns:

“inquiring minds need to know....where do you recommend purchasing your chic columns?”

Well, I bought my columns from a local party rental company that grew tired of hauling the (heavy) solid wood columns around and didn’t much care for the maintenance either. I loved the shape and was happy to buy them. But, I know that answer doesn’t help you much…so here are a few sources for you to check out…

If you have a source to recommend for square pedestals, we’d love to hear it!

Now, one more thing…for those of you who have a retail space…a couple of Visual Merchandising/Window Design blogs…

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you found something in today’s post helpful…or at least interesting. I can’t tell you what an honor it is to have each of you reading Botanical Brouhaha.  I love your comments, your questions and your emails.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Oh, yeah, and because we can’t have a post without flowers…

I wonder if those lighted pedestals could be DIYed. Imagine a white lace slip cover tailored for a simple four-leg table. Stick a light underneath and oh the pretty shadow patterns! (of course the chic and sleek could stick with a simple white cover or even go with the films used in theatre lighting!
