Winter Wonderland at The Vintage Marketplace Show

 
The Vintage Marketplace show in Temecula, CA this past weekend
was an inspiring gathering of vendors selling vintage, antique, and handcrafted goods.
The show is owned and produced by my friend, Rita Reade,
who founded it over 6 years ago with her sister in law, artist Christie Repasy.

When I'm lucky, I get to shop.
When I am REALLY lucky, I get to work with Rita to create visuals for the show!
At past shows, I've designed & styled her Mammabellarte booth displays
(and a few other vendors, too!)
but THIS time, along with styling her booth displays, 
Rita asked me to style a display at the entry of the show
to welcome guests, share the show theme, and provide a photo op.
 
We came up with a plan for a cozy scene that sparkles - 
and speaks more of the winter season than of holiday decor,
which is actually a pretty smart way to decorate - even in your home!

Rita's props and my imagination (and our combined physical strength!) 
resulted in this pretty vignette...
a fresh, wintery white palette with fresh greens, crystals, glass, and silver shimmers,
and the black wall with white chalk snowflakes provided the perfect contrast.

The black-with-white-snowflake wrapping paper covered boxes
weren't even in the plan. Nope!
I was almost done styling it all when I decided that I needed some gift boxes...
and then I remembered that in the back seat of my car were several rolls of paper,
meant to be used at Sylvia's studio two days before.
I hadn't even thought of them until that moment - total serendipity!
We rounded up some empty boxes, I wrapped them, and popped them into the display.
It was the finishing touch I wanted, and SO easy. 


We were both very happy with the results, and so were the hundreds of shoppers
photos of this vignette are showing up all OVER social media!

Hopefully our creative ideas will inspire your holiday & winter decor...




The next Vintage Marketplace show will be held in March, 2017 in Rainbow, CA
(near Southern California's Temecula Wine Country)
