I am looking forward to the shows this year and giving my biz a real shot in the arm! If anyone has pics of their booth from bridal shows, business expos, whatever please share them with me! My booth always looks bland to me and I want to make a really great presentation.
I figure if I start working on it now, I'll be more together when the time comes. TIA! icon_biggrin.gif

I have a few on my Flickr site (link below in signature). Here's a full shot of the booth. When I got there, the table was set up going across the front of the booth .... I moved it to the side to create an open booth, more inviting. I stored my dolly (refrigerator cart) under the white-clothed table. The red-clothed table is actually my two big rubbermaid tubs stacked up to make another table.

Im my town we just had the first wedding fair. I have planned to prepare 5-7 dummies, but didn't have enough time and made only 4, which was enough. Here are the pics, and the best thing I've done is print out of my cake pictures it made a huge difference. I would suggest you to do something like that if there is a chance. I wish you all the best.

sada, my husband just told me a couple of days ago that I needed to blow up some of my pics to poster size and hang them on the store walls. After seeing your display, I more than agree with him (and y'all know how I just HATE telling him he's right about something! icon_cry.gif )

Oh Sada I love that Idea! I can go to the 2nd hand store and get a nice acordion screen to put them up if I ever get to do a show that has no walls. lol Did you get them professionally printed to that size?

and I can put them up in my shop also since I can't nail anything on the fire wall I can just put them up like posters.

IndyDebi, they do have a brilliant thought every now and again. Tee hee

Indydeby sometimes we have to accept that others see things we are not able to see, cos we are too much and too close into the cake thing and other perspective is more than welcome. I also benefited from your husband, the thing I will always remember is how much is your time worth, after reading that in one of your posts I never hesitate to call an assistant to clean mess in my kitchen after cake making.
TheButterWench yes I got them professionally printed

How much do you guys pay for the large printing, and where do you order from?

It brought SO many people over to the booth! Every time someone would round the corner, we'd hear "OMG!" or big gasps or whatever, and it was ALWAYS over that cake!

Of course, now we have to figure out how to do it bigger and better next time!

FlowerGirl I can not help you with printing prices, since a frined of mine does it for me with no charge, and what kind of support/separatorts have you used for the big cake?

We had a dowel running through all the cakes that were grouped in tiers, my husband made the separators

I would like to get involved in the shows. How do you find out about them? Also, I'm assuming you would bring some real cakes too, but are they made up of dummies too or all real? Do you have people sign contracts on the spot?

flowergirl what are the sizes of that ginormous cake? it is phenomenal!!

FlowerGirlMN Posted 4 Apr 2008 , 2:11pm

it was 7'6" tall. "cake" layers were 4-22" in diameter, the topper was 6' I think.. the base gave it 2" of height, and both of the separator tiers were 8" and a bit each.
