Ever Wonder How…

October 8th, 2009 @ 3:33 pm by Kristin @ The Treasured Petal

Ever wonder how... to prevent “sweaty vase syndrome”?

I like the look of stacked vases. The picture below features bubble bowls stacked on top of cylinders of submerged orchids.

I also love creating floral cake stands with glass vases and plexiglass.

I’m also loving enclosed terrariums, like the one below via Grey Likes Weddings.

Lidded apothecary vases filled with flowers are also sweet.

Here’s the potential problem: flowers and plants sweat, and if the evaporated water can’t escape, it causes fogginess inside the glass. This is not such a cute look. I’m embarrassed to point this out, but you can even see my vase is sweating a little in the picture above!

I learned a cool tip passed on to me by my head assistant, Shana. She is full of wisdom and I’m blessed to have her on my team.

Step 1. Find a stick of clear glue for a glue gun.

Step 2. Use sharp scissors to cut it it up into little pieces, the thickness of a pencil eraser.

Step 3. Use a glue gun to glue the pieces to the rim of your vase or jar.

Step 4. Place your plexiglass sheet/vase/lid on top. The little glue gun pieces prop up the cover just enough to allow air circulation, and help to prevent your vase from fogging up.

What makes this so handy is that the glue pieces are hardly noticeable, they come off really easily when you’re done, and every florist has glue sticks in her/his toolbox somewhere. I have yet to try this trick on a super hot day, when sweat of all kinds is all too abundant. Can anyone vouch for this, or have another solution?
