My Orange County Fair Tablescape: Competition 2011

Sharing for Pink Saturday:  Please visit our host Beverly at




I am happy to say I won a 2nd Place ribbon.  The tablescape is very happy.  The judges comments were favorable.  The best compliment for me was that "it had perfect balance" as that was my greatest challenge.  I had practiced on my table at home since January.  When I got there the tables were smaller than remembered.  I switched everything on the spot when I got to the fair to set up--I guess that was when the balance happened.  Good thing! (because sometimes I scare myself when I do things like that).   I added the big bunny cake pan 2 weeks before (I found it at Goodwill on my way home from work).  I added the candle pedestal with the green bunny 2 nights before.  Those were good additions.  Everything else I had done way in advance.  The Fair is such a creative, positive experience.  I just love doing this!!
