A Blissful Booth

Welcome to the Arranging Elegance booth! Do you like my apron? It was a gift from The Apron Queen.

This tray is the first thing to greet you on the right. Who doesn't love chocolate truffles? Later in the day I offered salt water taffy in pretty pastels due to the heat.

Here's a close up of a little house scrapbook I made. It shows several before and after pictures of projects I have done.

I use a white and cream palette for my table covers and display items. It makes everything just pop, but in a soothing way.

Did you notice the tall menu sign of services? It started out as an old cupboard door.

Add some wrapping paper, a bit of mod podge and several buttons. Voila! An original sign.

On the left hand side of the booth I had a children's area. They could sit and create a craft while their mother's shopped.

Here is a close up of a little box I bought as Marshall's and made a bit more kid friendly.

A little bit of everything~vintage linens, glass cloches, lavender sachets, vintage trays and of course jewelry.

I try to think a bit outside the box when displaying things. This bracelet holder actually is a planter. I just filled it with Spanish moss and decorative mushrooms and hung bracelets off the side.

Yummy vintage filigree trays and frames updated in cotton candy colors. They are now sold out. I need to get busy.

Guess what I had for lunch?

A few of you inquired about the Halloween/Harvest jewelry I created for the show. I have few pieces left and they are now 1/2 off in my Etsy store.

Happy Shopping and stay tuned for Friday Freebie!

I'm not surprised you sold out of some things. Your booth looked so lovely and inviting. I'm glad that you had a good time and turn out. And I would have made the same lunch choice.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing... it was almost as if i was there with you... almost. but it was such fun to see the lovely ideas, and get my own mind going... sigh... what a relief it is to be creative and express it. Have a wonderful day! your booth was just lovely, and i loved how you used the planter for a bracelet display... My new favorite phrase to live by, "think outside the box!" :-)
