52 Weeks Happy (23/52)

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?


  1. So glad your market stall went well :) It looked so pretty!

  2. I've already mentioned it on your Instagram photo, but I absolutely love your stall for the market! I especially like the tray of mason jars with the straws and the drink dispenser above...it's a fabulous touch!

  3. Everything looks great. I love the tissue paper pom poms. Also, I didn't even know you could get peach flavoured jelly beans. They sound yummy.
