Orange pumpkins and gold leaves

So from an empty booth to a fall display.  Lots of work but lots of fun. We enjoyed meeting some of the other vendors who are setting up their displays at the same time too.  So this is a sneak peek of what our traditional fall display in the show looks like. Red Cinderella pumpkins to velvet pumpkins, real gold and red pressed leaves and fresh salal wreaths (thanks Lorraine) and some rusty tin items for texture. So get to the show that opens tomorrow at 8 am and runs through September 29.  There will be lots of restocking along the way by all the vendors so visit often.  Fill your home with some of these wonderful fall colors...

Fall Show at Monticello

I know - when most people think of fall they think of orange pumpkins and red leaves! Think again and enjoy a beautiful white pumpkin (yes they are real and are for sale) for a relaxing change.  The turn of the Century oil painting of the gentleman with pearl buttons is a show stopper!  Everybody had to come up and look at him up close. What a display it made as everything came together.  Sara can display anything and I find some good stuff for her to display!  Sara made the leaf wreath and I made the white leaf vines. If you haven't already figured it out - I LOVE this display. I want to move in and just sit there! So get to Monticello's Fall Show that opens Friday at 8:00am and see it for yourself. You may just find me sitting there enjoying it too... Mary  P.S. The next post will be of our orange pumkins and red leaves space out back in the show for the tradition in all of us!
