One thing we wanted to do to add the botanical feel of the Nada farm show was to add some sketched botanical wall art display. We felt that it would add to the whole greenhouse feel of the entire show. I sketched all of the botanical images in black pen on the craft paper that was attached to the wall, and Ann Marie added, vintage, botanical book, pages with little bits of dried flowers and grasses tucked inside. It became a romantic, dreamy, feel, and really lent to the entire aesthetic.
I really loved being able to add my artistic hand to the wall display. You can see the Fritillaira blooming still on a bulb that is drawn on between lots of different pages that are torn out of a book. I love the use of the droid hydrangea and it’s beautiful golden color against the paper.
This is my other favorite installation of the market. The weather branch is put on to two hooks that will be used whole clothing, and then on top there is moss that is draped with a bit of beautiful lace and adorned with paper butterflies. It really makes the entire scene so magical and goes with the sketched botanical wall art display
I was so inspired by all of the botanical drying that I decided to go home and create some of my own items that I would sell at the market that had the similar sketched feel. This lamp shade below is one that I added hand-painted butterflies to that were cut up and stitched around, and I added hand drawn vines. This has a very Anthropologie-style feel to me
I also added two chairs they also have botanical elements to them. This one is Cotton duck cloth with birds and hand-painted to live on it. And I also stitched a vintage doily to it so that it had kind of a eclectic- artsy feel.
The second chair that I created I painted a really pretty sage color, added some hand-painted butterflies, a hand-sewn vintage doily, and this is over a transferred image of a vintage botanical book page.
I had to share with you the image because even though it’s not botanical in nature I thought it was so cute. Ann Marie re-purposed is vintage lamp shades and stencil the word YUM them to hang over the bakery area. Right over that she added vintage lace from a tablecloth. It just is the most perfect setting and perfect aesthetic for the market and the bakery area. I thought it was so cute.
