Unfolded Designs at the Fall Makers Market

We had a fantastic time at the fall Makers Market last night, hosted by Embellish & Restore, and thanks to my family coming out and snapping a few photos with their phones, I can give you a glimpse of what the evening was like for us!

We had a 10×10 space, so we brought two tables. I set one up as a fall dinner, complete with place settings and a stunning centerpiece. The idea was to give people an image of what these pieces can look like in their own homes, and how beautiful and fun it can be to decorate with air plants! The second table held a number of different items, from manzanita pieces to glass vessels to amazing fairy lights.

In the above photo, you can see Robby and I are putting the final touches on our table. To create the table setting, I used a white table cloth, burlap table runner, plenty of fall items (white pumpkins, dried pomegranates, tiny seeds and pods) and one impressive lighted manzanita piece as the main attraction. From there we added anything of Robby’s that would work: moss, terrariums, air plants, and the coolest domes ever.  Another table simply had a number of different terrariums, manzanita pieces, and lights to choose from.

Our booth was grounded by a giant arbor Robby built last weekend! We were able to hang other pieces and lights from it, so again, people could have a strong visual of how they could bring these into their own spaces.

In the next photo, you’ll see a few items that drew people every time. We sold both pulleys with the hanging vases, and the beautiful glass dome with the lighted manzanita display inside of it is currently on my table. We’ll be bringing it to the next event, but I’m happy to put it to use now! :)

Glowing Items

To all who came out and supported us, thank you! Look for us at the upcoming Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 25th! And Unfolded Designs is now on Instagram, so stay connected with us there, too!

Celebrating Fall at The Gardens

Saturday was about as perfect as a day comes. It wasn’t just the weather, although high 70’s with gorgeous sunshine cannot be topped. We had the joy of spending a whole day at The Gardens Nursery, one of our favorite places to be. The owners were celebrating their one-year anniversary and asked Robby (Unfolded Designs), along with Steph and myself (Citrus and Cream) to come and join in on the festivities.

Robby and I arrived a little before 10:00 and set up our space. He had brought a number of lighted manzanita pieces with hanging globes, as well as a few ready-made terrariums. Within the first twenty minutes, we had already sold two major pieces! So fun! The rest of the day was a steady flow of people chatting with us, asking about our designs, and purchasing a terrarium, string of lights, or glass globe here and there.

There was a handful of other vendors and makers there, and I loved talking with them and oo-ing over their lovely items. Pictured below are flowers from the Flower Farm, a table setting from Finders Keepers Vintage and Wedding Rentals, yummy treats from Visalia Bakehouse, and handmade signs from Junk in the Trunk 559.

I also found time to wander the grounds, my favorite thing to do, especially since the whole garden was brimming with fall.

Around noon Steph, Ben, and their girls arrived. We waited in line to get the girls’ faces painted, and they turned out absolutely amazing! It was a highlight to see how thrilled the oldest one was with her kitty face! Makes me long for the day when I’ll have my own little one to do something like this with!

With the beautiful setting, perfect weather, visits with friends and family, and a few sales (yay!), the day was a success on so many levels.
