The Strawberry Nest Boutique Behind the Scenes

Two weeks ago I was preparing for my first event as an event planner. I had decided to host my own boutique. It was THE best idea I have had in a long time. I felt fulfilled. The women who came had an amazing experience. Friendships were formed.

A little behind the scenes. Scott is my biggest supporter and cheerleader. I say what I envision and he helps to make it happen. I wanted a walkway with booths on either side in my back yard. I had this idea to use some lace pennant banners I made a few years ago across the walkway. Then there was the idea to mix lights in with that. Except, how do I make that happen? Enter in Scott.

We bought buckets at Home Depot. We got sand to fill them with. Also purchased at Home Depot were 2x2x8′ pieces of wood. After centering the wood in the bucket we filled it with sand and water. Then, Scott thought to attach little cup hooks at the top of the pole to have something for the lights and banners to hook on to.
