As part of the Craft and Hobby Show the Designer members created a special display of tablescapes made with craft materials that featured Manufacturer member products. It was a way for us to showcase our skills as designers and encourage DIY projects for parties and events. This is one of the tables that I worked on entitled "Welcome to the Family Tree".
CHA Designer Tablescapes #1 -Designed and Created by: Cindy Rippe,Elaina Pecora, Kelly Hoernig and Phyllis Sandford. Notice how the flowers and crafts that look like flowers play a big part in this design.
Gifts for the baby are used to create the tablescape. Receiving blankets for the tablecloth, "burp" pads for the placemats, diapers for the cake centerpiece, little toy birds sewn for napkin holders, crocheted blanket, photo album, scrapbook organizer bag (to be used for a diaper bag) and more. Moss baskets used for the fabulous "Family Tree" centerpiece (mini babies were tucked into the roses!) and the cookie basket can be used to store baby items in the nursery. Roses on the diaper bag and cake are made from baby socks. Little felted nests are tucked into baby shoes, a memory box (tube), crocheted baby booties, a punch needle onsie, painted dinnerware and so much more could be found in the display . The floral decor on the back of the chairs can be reused to decorate the curtains or windows in the nursery. Guests are invited to paint little fabric squares instead of playing games. The finished squares will be made into yet another gift for the baby, a special quilt! Once they are told how the tablescape is created, Moms to be love to search for all the items they'll be taking home from the table!
