Fresh Display Ideas for Spring

Three is Better Than One with this example. In Mud Pie, we set the table with new pieces from Lobster Bait and Coral Reef collections.  Instead of going with just one tablecloth, we chose three different runners and displayed them along the table (left picture). Now picture this for an idea! Display a collage of picture frames on one wall in varying sizes and styles for a strong focal point (right picture).

Round we go with a creative way to display Mud Pie totes.  This fun idea captures the eye and hopefully captures some sales (left picture). Texture time with this idea featuring the Mud Pie Gifts for the Wino collection.  Considering using textured fabric to create a unique backdrop (right picture).

It’s child play with C.R. Gibson’s puzzle collection from Gibby & Libby.  Display one puzzle on a magnetic poster mounded on a endcap allowing kids the opportunity to play while mom shops (left picture). You crate me up with this idea featuring the Santa Barbara Design Studio Sally Jean collection.  Crates are great display solutions for mounting directly to the wall or stack on top of one another.  Either way, you will create a rustic, unique look (right picture).

Frame up this ideas featuring iota by C.R. Gibson.  Take a variety of frames and create a focal display where you can mound product directly within each frame or display varying prints for a visual surprise (left picture). Go green with ivy with C.R. Gibson while taking faux greenery or ivy and mount directly on an end-cap or wall for a natural, outdoor look (right picture).

Here’s one faux-tastic look with Boulevard.  Take a section of wall and paint a faux brick look to create an industrial, modern look (below).
