2016 Middle Tennesse District Fair Booth

Posted on Updated on

“A County Fair Picnic” is our theme this year for the 2016 Middle District Fair in Lawrenceburg. Our theme is set on a grassy picnic area with three vignettes: one with a wagon and picnic blanket, a bicycle and picnic blanket feast, and the other with the typical fair entries and awards.


The vintage bicycle, donated by Old School Antiques, was dressed up with a picnic basket and blanket to give it a nostalgic look. Our wagon was dressed up with blanket rolls and products from Pick Tennessee Products. Each picnic blanket vignette on the grass had their own feast. A croquet set is there for its picnickers and a homemade kite flies above the picnic area.

We teamed up with Pick Tennessee Products to display their products and our plants. Thank you, Maria Santini, for connecting us with them. This is the third year we’ve been helping with their booth and we enjoy it so much!

Set up was a real joy. Thank you to our team members, Joyanna & Jill Mathenia, Sandi Pettus, Marie Brenan, Muriel Ross, Jessica Aaron, Leonard & Shirley Lemay, and Eric & Michelle Lewis for making it such a big success!

      Thank you! We all had fun doing it. We’re doing a front porch next year.
