Lucite bases make wonderful additions to any entertaining closet. They are elegant and chic, modern and classic at the same time. They can be used on the tabletop to raise the height and the grandeur of candlesticks or floral containers. They can also be used in the foyer to frame a seating chart or escort cards. They are handy on a bar cart to hold the ingredients to a signature drink or on a serving tray (if the piece is thin and not too heavy) for hors d’oeuvres. Their clear surfaces can be quite delicate, so be careful not to scratch them with sharp objects; otherwise, use your imagination and have fun with them. I guarantee that you will use them repeatedly and they will become one of your favorite entertaining tools.
For this special dinner (below), we used lucite bases, and it was the perfect addition to the tablescape!
