Cornhusker/KFRX Bridal Show

Woo-hoo! Sweet relief! The Cornhusker/KFRX bridal show is over, and everything went well. I had a lot of fun meeting brides and area vendors!

Below are some pics of my booth. We crammed a lot of stuff into an 8x8 foot space! Mad props to my hubby and dad for hauling the big stuff in. I know that was a pleasant experience, especially in 100 degree heat.

First, let's talk about that big stuff. My vintage book backdrop made its debut at the show. It's an 8 feet tall, 44 inches wide, and wallpapered with pages from vintage books. I capped the top with some antique crown molding. It turned out beautifully. I think this backdrop would be fantastic as a wedding ceremony backdrop or as part of a cake table or guest table vignette. It would also be great for photo shoots.

Here's one of our four vintage typewriters.

The booth was decked out in romantic accessories.

My brooch bouquets also made their debut at the bridal fair. I can make these to your specifications out of whatever color/style vintage brooches and costume jewelry that you would like. And yes, Miranda Lambert did carry a brooch bouquet at her wedding (if I had $1 for every time I heard that mentioned at the bridal fair, I'd have a nice little stack of cash). These are one item I do not rent, though. They are only available for purchase.

I received some nice compliments on these silhouettes. I love silhouettes -- I think a silhouette themed wedding would be elegant and fun. I can also make custom silhouettes for you. I just need a photo of the subjects in profile.

You will notice there is now a link to my Nostalgia Inventory set on flickr so you can see some of the items that we currently have. Please remember that this is absolutely not a complete listing of our inventory -- if there is something specific you are looking for, just ask because we may well have it already. (If not, we can get it.) I am going to try to add many more photos this week. But for now, the contents of my booth are strewn all over my house. Wish me luck getting this place livable again. I'm going to need it!
