Applying Trends to Holiday Store Displays

As you begin to stock your stores with product for the holiday season, you may be wondering how to bring holiday joy into your store displays. This post is going to cover three top design trends and how to bring them into your store.

Right now everyone is obsessing over plaid. Bring this power trend into your store displays by pairing it with rustic wood textures. Make use of old chalkboards to highlight featured product information. Add natural pine to traditional ornaments and figurines. Vary the height of your display by incorporating vintage thrift store finds including candle stick holders, cake stands or crates. Don’t be afraid to mix plaid patterns! Check out the C.R. Gibson Holiday collection here.



Draw attention into your store with a non-traditional bright display. Arrange new holiday products on a stand next to a small Christmas tree with bright ornaments and lighting with DIY paper snowflakes and dangle from the ceiling. Add bright metal and glass pieces for accents. Feature pieces from Studio M Christmas-Winter Art Pots to tie it all together. 



The gold trend is still going strong, which is great news for the upcoming season! This timeless trend will allow your products to shine. Bringing hints of gold into your holiday displays can be very simple. Search for free faux gold foil holiday printables online and place in gold frames. Wrap a few empty boxes with gold gift wrap and use gold ribbon on tags. Spruce up old display items with the use of gold spray paint or pine cones, branches or old wood holiday figurines. This Mud Pie display makes great use of varying white and cream textures.



It is no secret that the holidays are the busiest time of year for retailers. Have fun with your seasonal displays and enjoy the process. Once you’ve wrapped up your displays, sit back and prepare a cup of hot chocolate to celebrate!
