Lomey Design System
Creating Tall Centerpieces Just Like a Professional!
What do all three of these tall wedding centerpieces have in common? They were all made using a Lomey Design System!
The Lomey Design System is an assortment of clear acrylic pieces that are glued together with special adhesive. Professional florists use this system to create a variety of stunning elevated centerpieces.
Tall glassware is usually expensive to buy, heavy to ship and transport to the reception hall always has the danger of breakage.
Florists have used these lightweight, inexpensive acrylic products like the Lomey Design System for years. They are versatile and can be used in many ways to create different tall designs.
The various pieces are glued together with permanent adhesive made especially for the Lomey system. However, you can use florist's clay instead if you'd like to eventually dismantle the set and be able to sell it through Craig's list or E-bay in order to recover some of your wedding expenses.
The two basic systems use the same principle. A wider base supports either pillars (hollow tubes) or pedestals (slender rods in an "x" shape) that fit into a universal base.
You then glue ANOTHER universal base on the top of the column and you can glue a clear (or metallic finished) container on the top to hold your Oasis foam for your centerpieces.
Lomey pedestals are more slender and often used (turned upside down with the flat part up) inserted into centerpieces at different heights and then top with votive candles that are attached using florist clay.
On the pedestal's top round plate is permanently attached. Glue on crystal taper candle holders or a glass votive holder that you find at a bargain discount store.
See the center "X"? This is where you glue in the pedestal with the Lomey glue.
Once the pedestals or columns are glued to the ends, you then glue the base directly to a flat bottomed container.
Planning on a really large floral arrangement at the top? You can glue columns side by side to create a more stable center.
Leave the top open if you'd like to add extra focal points or design elements such as beaded wire.
Base plates are available in a variety of sizes, colors and finishes in my store. You can choose clear or black, flat white, or metallic gold/silver.
Clear glassware is really being featured in today's wedding centerpieces. Instead of the normal stems stuck down into a vase, a clear base plate is attached to the top and the inside of the vase is used for visual impact.
