It's Craft Fair Season!

Happy Fall, Y'all!

Yesterday was our church's annual Fall Festival. An afternoon of carnival type food, entertainment (arm wrestling & our teen band), fun for the kids (face painting, photo booth, bouncy house, & a hay maze), & a mini craft fair!

This was my third year participating & I think it was my most successful yet!

Leading up to this year's festival, I'd been doing a lot of research on sprucing up my craft table display. I'm very happy with how it turned out & I think it looked much more inviting this year.

My main goal was to bring the displays off of the table a bit more. No more flat! I purchased some vintage apple boxes & used them to display things on and in. Dual function is always a good thing!

I strung up some twine in one of the boxes & used mini clothes pins to hang up some of my owl ornaments.

Here, you can see the yellow table cloth. It was actually a duvet cover that I thifted some time ago. I took out the side seams & ta-da! A perfectly cheery tablecloth.

I used one of my milk glass bowls to display place cards (They were a big hit!).

In the other apple box I displayed my hoop art & my tissue paper flowers.

On top of the boxes I displayed my gift card pillow boxes. I had the Christmas ones on the other side.

I also used some pretty vintage doilies / embroidered napkins on the tops of the apple boxes to add a homey touch.

Here you see it all together.

I added washi tape mini bunting to the front of the table along with a "Silver Boxes" banner.

I had someone tell me that it looked like a party... Shopping is fun after all, right? ;)

In the middle of the table, I used an old frame that I had lying around. (Literally. Under my guest bed.)
I bought some chicken wire at Home Depot & my husband kindly helped me out by stapling it into the frame. 

Then I used some clothes pins to pin up some of my handmade cards.

Some polka dot garlands are draped on either side of the frame.

Are you a crafter who has a table or booth at some local craft fairs? 

They're a lot of fun. I've already got another one lined up for November!
