The back containers needed some height so needed a quick solution~ I took cardboard square bowls and flipped upside down, wrapped them with white duct tape and used double sided tape to stick on cupcake toppers. So the original plan was to take these popcorn balls from Walmart and put them in cellophane bags and tie with coordinating ribbon and add the circle tags from Frog Prince Paperie. Time just ran out ...at least the popcorn ball wrapping was orange and black!
Remember my fireplace Craigslist find for $90, right?? Well, here it is all decked out for Halloween. I filled my spray painted Goodwill iron bowl with Dollar Tree glitter skulls. I adore old window panes so when I saw this one at a yard sale for $2, I almost broke my neck trying to get to it! I added a black feather wreath with spray painted black pine cones. What is the proper name for this dish, anyone?? Got this lovely from Goodwill for $3~ it's real marble people!! I thought spidey would be comfortable inside.I not a matchy match type of girl hence the different plates. I always like to mix things up with different patterns.Close up of the Halloween table display. Here is how the sideboard table looked on opening day. Got the frame idea here!
I needed a little orange and found this lovely glitter pumpkin at HomeGoods.
One of my favorite clients turned friend came to open house and saw that I had a TV still in box in the kitchen. She asked why it wasn't up and I told her that it cost too much to have mounted so it would have to wait. The next day she was down to the shop with her whole family and had my TV installed! Isn't that amazing!! I actually cried and still get teary eyed when I think how blessed I am to have this wonderful woman in my life and to think it all started with her little girl's birthday party!! So here is a pic of my new digs~ of course it's on a swivel mount so can be viewed throughout the space!! BTW, the hubby surprised me with the TV!
Here is the hallway that leads to the boutique, bathroom and activity room. More details pics to come. I must go work on Maddy's party and a Super Mario party. Having a hard time with the Super Mario theme~ I'm not a gamer and have no idea about it so I rented the game for my Wii to see what inspiration I can get!! (Yes, we own a Wii but I played it once....such a shame!) If you have some suggestions, I'm all ears!
