I've been contemplating this for a while, but i still dont know what to put in my decorator tray. i was thinking a mix between plastic flowers or shrubbery, and berries or some sort? anyone have any ideas?
also, im still looking for a 52oz screw cap bottle, it can be empty. and a squiggle crew cap :P
The Decorator was not provided with flowers, unlike the Enchantress models. A catalog aimed at retailers suggested it be purchased by florist shops which could decorate them with plastic plants; a catalog aimed at consumers suggested the "enterprising homemaker" could "change the plantings to suit any occasion."
I have two of these. For one, I hunted thrift stores 'til I found a ring of plastic greenery and yellow, orange and red daisies. For the other, I hit a craft store with a large selection of fake plants and flowers, and bought numerous bunches of rubber grapes on plastic stems.
Another idea I used once in an Enchantress was a tiny string of 15 multicolored miniature Christmas lights; I then filled the tray with heaps of broken-up auto safety glass. That looked very pretty. In a Decorator, having such a deep tray, I'd fill the bottom with a thick foam floral arrangement ring (craft stores sell these), put the lights and glass on top, to keep weight low; these rings can also be used to decorate with fake silk or plastic flowers.
One person I know uses his for keys, spare change and random pocket contents.
I always wanted to get a Decorator. Missed few auctions on ebay over the years.
although I was quite liking the candy idea... how hot exactly does the decorator ring actually get? I have a few sets of those vintage plastic grapes if interested..maybe a some plastic vine type leaves and grapes... Food of the Gods...lol
Chocolate dip!!!! The heat would keep it melted.
