Southern Bridal Show & Expo: April 17, 2011

It was a gorgeous day for the Southern Bridal Show and Expo.  The one day event was held at the NC State Fairgrounds and it was hosted by Forever Bridal Productions.  Brides and their familes/ friends were lining up early to get into the building to see the vendors' booths.  So many vendors did a great job at making their booths a beautiful and educational experience for the brides.  I am always excited to design a booth and a separate table top.  It is a great way for me to showcase my talents and to step outside the box and showcase new ideas.  Both my booth and table top had bright colors for the spring season.  Hot pinks and bright greens were accented with rustic chic elements such as branches and casual/fun linens (provided by Classic Party Rentals).

Here are just a few photos of my table top design.  The pink heather, white snapdragons, hot pink garden roses, bright green viburnum and pink peonies were a big hit with so many brides.  Thank you to all of you that gave me such wonderful compliments!


And, here a few photos from my booth.  The booth carried tha same theme from the table top design but with more white flowers and other elements.  I love to bring unique items to these shows, such as the white manzanita trees and wrought iron 'twig' candelabras.
