@tru: aww thanks girlie!! my blog is my heart lol… it is truly like a diary of exactly what i am thinking at this moment plus picture porn because well i love pretty pictures :D… bistro tables are PERFECT around a dance floor so folks can sit their drinks and keep a dancing or lean when they are tired lol!!! i would definitely go for either really low arrangments or really tall, skinny and high ones.
@jen: great great suggestions!!! I try to go with well defined themes of who I think that I am as a designer while still showing my products (it’s quite difficult because I adore so many different things lol). omg no calendars?! i was able to book an appointment with my blackberry this past show. now, I wasn’t the most well versed in how to use it but i danged sure make sure that i had it there lol!!! i also have an idea of when i am booked, which is cool.
@toffee: the upsell may just be because they wanted you to know they have additional products, for example a lot of my clients are surprised about all the things that i offer and i preface it by saying: i am not trying to sell you anything, but i want to make sure that you know about all of the things we offer in case you are looking later in your planning. and how rude about your mom!!!!
OMG I have a huge one… I had a woman ask me about everything on my display a while back.
woman: So where do I get something like that (speaking about my vase)
me: i rent them
woman: where do i get these pointing at something else i think it was the feathers or something.. .
me: i rent them
woman: what is that
me: a card box
woman: oh laura(made up name) come here and look at this take plenty of pictures i know you can make this for so and so’s wedding you’re crafty
me: okay if y’all have any more questions let me know, have a great day 😀
woman: wait what’s that on top of the cake
me: a cake topper
woman: where do you get those from
me: i make them (me getting a bit annoyed i wanted to tell her to go to google do a search and she’d find a way to do it)… she was asking me so many questions i finally said, i’m sure you can find everything on the internet… good luck.
btw also after a show do not call a vendor and ask them HOW they did an arrangement.. for example i had an attendant call and ask how to do the centerpiece I did. Um are you serious?! and she wanted me to send her pictures…
