For a bit of history - this was a big deal.
This show is organized by Nancy Curtis from Perfect Parties by Nancy who is probably the original party planner in this area. We are in essence direct competition. Well, I've been asking to be part of her show for 2 years now and finally, finally, this year I was sent an invitation to participate!!!!!!
Persistence is key. This is also known as "networking" which I am getting better at. lol
So needless to say I was super pumped to be part of this show and uber nervous. (I may not appear to be the person that gets nervous but I do) I was so nervous due to the fact that Fredericton is where I live. These are in fact brides I could potentially see every day around town. What if they didn't like me? What if my booth wasn't up to snuff? I talked to a few great friends and managed to shove these insecure feelings back into the box they should remain in; designed my booth layout; put on my best frock
The second photo is a close up of the flowers that were in my booth - a bit wild and funky which could easily be used in any garden theme wedding.
The photo on the right has a box of grass which could be used for a variety of reasons: hold escort cards, table numbers, insert votive candle holders, add flowers, options are endless! There is a floral print invitation (City Boy Meets Country Girl) behind the box and a favor pocket in front which contains seeds (very green). Again seen here is the orchid pomander, this time with a pink ribbon but placed on top of the tower vase - double duty!
FYI - Vases rent for $5 each
