Succulents and Ferns add a lush topper

I enjoyed creating the topper. By adding ferns, succulents, peacock feathers, and purple flowers it really makes a statement. I also decided to add the Garden Party signage using a Deflecto clip ( although the dessert stand really didn’t need it). I figured; what the heck?!  🙂

Each tier was covered in coordinating washi tape and the top tier has resin flowers attached – they are SO pretty.

I wrapped 2 ferns around the inside of the second tier and finished it off with this GREAT picket fence I found hiding in my stash!

Thanks for visiting and remember to leave a comment to win one of these GREAT stands!

Please note: This is a sponsored post. Deflecto has provided product in exchange for my creative ideas, views and opinions.

Also a HUGE love: The Pear Clip plus Flexible Pouch ( 3×5 or 5×7) also got me excited. I can see using them to display samples of my work on a portable chain!

Now onto Faber-Castell® …

Ok, these aren’t new, but I like the Textural Accents Sampler they offer for $5.25 MSRP. It’s a great way to try their gesso, gel medium and glaze. It’s also an ‘easy sell’ for me in my {small} store.Faber Castell textural accents sampler

I also like the Mix and Match Gelatos® Mist Maker set for $11.95 MSRP.Faber Castell mist maker

 I found many new products to get excited about in the Hampton Art booth. New – Angela Potter ‘Color Me Stamps’ in both clear and wood.

Studio G – Great new assortment of wood stamps. I like the Stamp Adventure Assormtent – 16 designs for $7.84 MSRP

The new shapes and colours being offered in their self-adhesive gems is lovely. Studio g gems They also have beautifully painted buttons, clothespins, etc.

What I really like about Hampton Art is the variety of products and price.

My next post will cover products and companies that STOOD OUT at the show, either in their presentation, marketing, products, or excitement factor. 🙂
