I've finally had a chance to upload the pictures I took of my new display setup.
I'm pretty happy with most of it - just have to tweak a couple of things and it'll be perfect. I'll eventually replace the steps with another wood display piece since I love the way the bamboo wood looks with my miniatures.
Photo 1: Overall shot, including the lovely tablecloth my grandmother made for me. It really stood out against all the other tables that were dressed in white, black, or dark brown. It certainly made my table pop.
Photo 2: All the miniature drinks I made for the show. There are some I hadn't had a chance to photograph, so I will be doing that when I have some time leftover. I did sell quite a bit of them by the end of the show.
Photo 3: Prep boards! You've seen a couple of them, but I made a few more that I need to post here. They are all going to end up on Etsy when I have the time.
Photo 4: Coke, Milk and Cookies, Beer and Pretzels, Espresso, Ice Cream Cups, Lemonade, and Bubble Tea.
Photo 5: 3 Tier Dessert tray (with chocolates, chocolate cookies and meringues, jam thumbprint cookies and petit fours), 2 glass cookie jars, a Tea Sandwich tray (cucumber sandwiches on top, tomato and radish sandwiches on the bottom), a small dessert tray (petit fours, chocolates, and more thumbprint cookies), a jar of gumballs, a jar of old fashioned candies, a small metal tray of chocolates, and another dessert tray filled with chocolates and chocolate roses.
Photo 6: A summer picnic set with hamburger and hot dog buns, burgers and hot dogs, cheese, a bowl of lettuce, tomato, and pickles, and two cups of coke with ice.
Photo 7: A cheese serving tray with all my cheese trays, champagne and caviar tray, and a fruit bowl. I really like this piece.
All but the white wine tray will be put on Etsy soon-ish.
Photo 8: Pretty much everything that wasn't cakes, breads, or produce. Yes, those are retro TV dinners in the back.
Photo 9: Cakes and cupcakes, bread, fruits, and veggies, plus my bakers rack. I made some more peeled oranges as well as lemons, plus some lemon and orange halves.
Photo 10: Assorted Easter baskets, a pancake breakfast tray, gingerbread house, a basket with cheese, bread, and a wine bottle, and a vegetable basket.
Photo 11: All 1:24 scale foods plus some drinks.
The little yellow and orange dots are 1:24 scale lemon and orange halves.
Photo 12: Assorted sandwiches, pizzas, and on the trays are all my 1:48 foods. I didn't get a chance to photograph the 1:48 goblets I'd found at a club sale, and I'm sad about that since I've never seen any since then.
They were teeny and held only a tiny drop of resin in each.
Overall, the show was a big success - even better than Boca. I met a lot of very nice people and got some great feedback on my items and display. It seems I've finally nailed 1:12 scale.
Too bad there are no more shows until January. Now I'll be changing from miniatures to convention related items like jewelry and charms.
