First of all, we've been buying frames at the thrift stores during the year.
Do it yourself framing! All you need is a little tape and a staple gun. No one will ever see the backs of these pictures so why pay for expensive framing? If the backs were exposed then I would probably cover with brown craft paper. Instead of paying for table skirts, I got these pretty satins from the Walmart dollar bin. Everything was just a dollar a yard and it'll take me less than an hour to sew the panels together and hem. Don't pay for accessories - shop at home! I went around the house and picked up pieces that would go with our set-up. Candles and tchochkies always work within a display and I thought I'd use the glass cake pedestal to fan out Doug's business cards and price list. The plate holders will hold pretty frames. I'll use books underneath my table covering to make different height levels on the display table.
It just goes to show you, it doesn't have to be expensive to be beautiful! Plus, Doug's work speaks for itself. His images are outstanding and I'm sure he'll finish booking up his year by the end of the show. Be sure to check out his website: Douglas Creamer Photography or send him some love at his blog.
