(Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
I didn’t have a lot of time or money to invest in a jewelry party display for my first show at my friend’s home.
So I came up with using ceramic pottery and vases that I already had, then put in dead branches from the yard.
The branches were great to hang the long necklaces, but the shoppers had to be careful not to poke themselves.
I wouldn’t recommend this for an outdoor display since the branches are difficult to transport and can get blown around easily.
I love the light, airy feel of your jewelry party display – the white table covering, open branches, etc.
Another excellent point shown here:
At home parties we often wind up using the hostess’ dining room table for our display, which the party guests walk all the way around as they shop. So it’s important to be prepared to display jewelry on all four sides of the table!
Your branches are a great vertical display element for showing jewelry to all sides of the table at the same time.
Thanks so much for sharing this excellent example of what can be done without investing a lot of time or money.
Your attractive, simple display shows how to blend “found objects” and creativity into a beautiful backdrop for handmade jewelry.
Any insights learned from your party
So how did your party go. Did you have good sales. Any ideas in how you marketed your jewelry party.

Your display and jewelry are simple beautiful!
I also use branches
I also use branches from my yard for some of my displays! To make the display more stable I would suggest filling the vases with small pebbles etc. so they won’t be easily knocked over. Also I spray painted my branches, some silver & some white. This gives them a nice elegant look.
