There hasn't been any sewing or baking happening this week as it was all about getting ready for my market stall this past weekend. This stall was just a small one to try and get the word out about my event hire business that I started a few months ago. My friend gave me the heads up about a babies & kids markets being held in the Gold Coast hinterland and I decided to give it a go. I only heard about it 2 weeks prior but the stalls were really affordable so I decided to do it as a marketing activity rather than a money making activity. The next markets are in December and I am hoping to have some bunting and other party props available for sale. Here are a few snapshots of my week organising my stall...
1 - A collage of our market stall. I was so happy with how it ended up looking. We got a lot of positive feedback which was nice to hear.
2 - I picked up these pink jellybeans for the lolly buffet I set up. My sister declared them the best jellybeans she has ever tasted. They were peach flavoured. Delicious!
3 - There is nothing better than brown paper & twine. I love these cheers tags I made for our mason jars. They are the perfect touch for a vintage or rustic wedding.
4 - Paper bunting is so easy to make and looks fantastic! Just because you can't sew doesn't mean you can't have bunting at your next event.
5 - I don't think I will ever get sick of tissue paper pom poms! I made small ones and attached them to paper straws. They were then stuck in ramekins and surrounded with jellybean. They were like little trees of colour on the lolly buffet!
5 - I also made a paper bunting with our name on it. I am so happy with how it turned out. The best part is if I fold it up neatly and pop it in a plastic sleeve I will be able to use it over & over again.
So what has been happening in your week to make you smile?
