Going into the Final Stretch

 Well the Catersource and Event Solutions convention are a little over a week away! I'm excited and just a bit stressed, preparing for my Table Top design contest.

 For those of you that don't know. I'm one of 20 or 25 people in a Table Top Design contest. I will be getting judge by industry professional and David Tutera!! I'm pretty excited about it all. This allows me to delve into some of my other creative passions.

I started on my table top arrangement last week. This is the beginning of my design. My theme, is of course "Bexx Secret Garden". My original theme was Diva's Dishes but I decided I wanted to do something a bit more whimsical incorporating my fairy collection and my secret garden.

Curtis and I found this awesome lantern at the Home Goods store a few weeks ago. This launched my idea and theme! 

First Attempt.

Had to redo since styro was too small.

Today I'm off to finish my table settings purchasing. Of course since I'm on a budget, I'm using this term very losely, I'm shopping at the discount chain Home Goods, Marshall's stores. The problem with this is they don't always have the amount I need (I have to have a table setting for 8)  so I have to go from store to store trying to get all the pieces. I'm think I've finally found a combination I'm happy with now, I just need to find the finishing pieces.

Wish me luck! I don't think I'm going to post my complete setting and design until  the show but I'll be posting bits and pieces for you all to see how it all comes together.

Have a wonderful and creative day!
