Dogwood Balloon Blossoms–Come on Spring!

Today, Rachel and I worked non-stop to create an exciting trade show booth display for our client, Oak Ridge National Laboratory Federal Credit Union (ORNL FCU). They are one of the major sponsors for this year’s Dogwood Art’s Festival Home & Garden Show. It was an honor to create the decor for them again this year.

When I met with my clients, we brainstormed about the look and feel for their booth. They wanted it to be “Above the Rest,” wanted it to be easily seen from anywhere in the convention center, wanted it to be inviting and of course, wanted it to represent our lovely dogwood trees of East Tennessee. That’s exactly what we did for them.

The booth has four 8-10′ dogwood trees, and each tree has numerous dogwood blossoms on it.

While we worked very hard to create the trees and arches today, it was fun seeing the bare brown tree trunks come alive with spring when we started adding the blossoms. Many fellow exhibitors stopped and gave lots of positive compliments on the look, which I especially appreciated because those exhibitors are very talented landscape and interior decorator experts who have great looking booths.

Dogwoods are blooming, it's gotta be Spring!

I hope any of you who are in Knoxville this weekend that you take time to visit the Dogwood Home & Garden Show to not only see our festive display, but that you visit the ORNL FCU booth to purchase a raffle ticket to win a Smart car, furniture or an outdoor bar or open an account with them.

Many, many thanks to my fabulous crew–Rachel, Alexandra, Katie and Julia (welcome aboard Julia) who worked their fingers hard to preprep many parts of this decor and special thanks to RACHEL who never took a break today and as always brought her best design eye to the job! Appreciate you all!
