Colorful shop windows: Christmas decorating tips, part 1

From lilac to orange: something different for a change

Christmas is just around the corner. Gingerbread houses greet you in every supermarket and the early birds already wonder about the gifts they should buy. It’s high time to inspire potential shoppers to start buying Christmas gifts.

If you haven’t decorated your store for the festive holidays yet, we recommend that you start the day before yesterday. For inspiration, we have gathered a few ideas from this year's Christmasworld trade fair for you and compiled them in a small series. The practical decorating tips will instantly add Christmas spirit to your store. We show you options and ideas that go beyond the classic red Christmas tree ornaments and white paper stars.

Dark red, pine green, silver, and gold - these are the colors we associate with Christmas decorations. They set a reflective, romantic mood.

Meanwhile, bright and happy colors like yellow, orange and bright green are also perfect for adorning the Festival of Joy.

Christmas baubles are beautiful, classic decorative ornaments, but they don’t necessarily have to just embellish a Christmas tree. They are also striking as ceiling decorations. What’s more, this allows you to free up space on the sales floor.

Tinsel is one of the classics when it comes to decorative elements for Christmas. Originally, the silver metal strips symbolized the icicles on a Christmas tree. These days, the ornament comes in many different colors and designs.

Traditional Christmas motifs such as Christmas baubles and Christmas trees in unusual colors like pink, purple, lavender purple, aquamarine, powder blue, aventurine, turquoise and every color in between make perfect eye catchers.
