My first window display!

Every day when I walk to and from the subway to go to work, I get to pass by some of my decorations in action. That's because I created a window display for the wine store a few doors down from my apartment in June (it's a great little shop with a great hand selected selection of wine and specialty liquor called Free Range Wine).

I decided to offer my services because there was a local wedding event taking place that weekend and I though it would be a good opportunity to promote Sparkle Motion Decor. I had 2 days to make something and a slew of Etsy orders to work on so I decided to create a multi-layered tissue tassel garland, and tissue paper flowers to stick in the empty wine bottles the owner keeps in the windows. I also provided some matching drink stirrers with my contact info on them, some cake topper garlands, and some cute trays, cake stands, and tablecloth for the table display.

The owner of the shop said he'd display the decorations as long as I'd like and he keeps asking me for more drink stirrers with my contact info because he has now run out! I really enjoyed making this window display and hope that I'll have an opportunity to create more displays later this year!

CONFETTISYSTEM at MoMA PS1 In New York City, there is an overwhelming amount of stuff happening at every single moment and you usually miss it. So imagine my surprise when I look up places to go to brunch on my day off (MLK day this past Monday) and magically stumble upon the news that the MoMA PS1 (which has a great restaurant inside) just launched a new CONFETTISYSTEM exhibit!!! Perfect!

For those who aren't familiar with CONFETTISYSTEM, they make these amazing installations and products out of tissue paper and mylar, and have created some of the most beautiful concert backdrops for bands like Atoms for Peace and Beach House. They've also made a bunch of in-store installations for shops like J.Crew, and their infamous tissue tassel garlands and pinatas that have transformed events, including many weddings.

The exhibit featured 100 arrangements by the duo behind CONFETTISYSTEM, Nicholas Andersen and Julie Ho, inside a two-story gallery space. It was a mix of silver and gold mylar backdrops, their star flowers and tassels on branches, giant fruit pinatas, and these cool silver bench structures.

Here are some of the photos from the exhibit....but they can only do it so much really have to see it for yourself!

For those of you who are in NYC, I highly recommend checking out the exhibit...especially since there's lots of other great art at MoMA PS1 to see as well. It is on view until March 31, 2013. Also check out CONFETTISYSTEM's site where they sell their infamous pinatas and garlands.
