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!

What's new on Etsy - my latest custom orders

Lately I've had the chance to work on some really fun Etsy orders. At least 1/3 of my orders are custom orders and I really enjoy the process of working with customers to create something unique. Here are some photos of some of my most recent custom orders....

Decorative cupcake toppers in custom colors that I made for a 1st birthday party. Also made a cake topper garland, a full length garland, and high chair garland.

Ribbon wands made out of mylar and tissue paper (using wooden skewers), and a cake topper garland made out of lace and tulle for an upcoming wedding. The bride (who is also a friend of mine from middle school) also ordered custom chair garlands in tulle and lace.

Red, white and blue tissue paper and mylar tassel garland for an "election themed" baby gender reveal party. Garland was ordered by a friend and fellow Making Things Happen alum, Amber Veatch, of Amber Veatch Designs. Amber is a really talented wedding/event decorator and stylist from Florida. You can see photos from her party along with the results of the election on her blog.

Sparkle Motion Decor is on Twin Cities Live!

Last month, an event stylist/photographer named Kelly Anderson contacted me to see if she could use my navy, teal, mint garland for a photo shoot and TV segment on her local morning show, Twin Cities Live. The segment and shoot were all about kid-friendly 4th of July party ideas. Here is the link to the video. You can see my garlands hanging from the star piñata. Hope to have some photos to share from Kelly's photo shoot soon!
