Fair-y Craft Mother

My mom entered two tablescapes in the Ohio State Fair, which starts today. This was her large-table entry, a summer garden theme with pinwheels. She took FIRST PLACE!

The judging committee also decided to award her "Best In Show" for this table, which apparently they haven't awarded in the last five years! One of the frequent contenders even mentioned, "I've never seen them do this..." So my mom's table was not only the best entry of all the tables this year, but of the last five years! They said the handmade pinwheels put her over the top in score.
