Holiday Home Decor In A Hurry
The holiday season is upon us and Home Decor retailers are beginning to see shoppers looking for a quick way to update their homes for the next special day their family will be celebrating. While some folks have a carefully hoarded stash of holiday decor saved for each year, others are at a loss to decorate for the holidays and will come into stores for inspiration.
Add Some Lights
This time of year, the long nights start early. A few strings of twinkly white lights can go a long way toward a festive atmosphere. Those who dislike blinking lights still appreciate the glow of tiny lightbulbs around the room. A mantel or bookshelf with some unique lighting accessories becomes a source of ambient glow.
Retailers can help the shopper by setting up some displays showing the possible uses of small lights. Seeing a few examples helps shoppers see a potential quick upgrade in their home decor.
Add Some Sparkle
Some home decor lends itself to holiday decorating. Other color schemes can be more challenging to traditional forms of “decking the halls”. Red and green usually looks lousy with purple walls but adding some form of sparkle looks great with anything. Silver and gold ornaments piled in a glass bowl complement any decor. Adding some sparkly tinsel to a flower arrangement is a festive touch. Mirrored accessories reflect the room, particularly when grouped together.
Retailers adding a few touches of sparkle to a room display let shoppers know how their homes can easily be decorated with accessories they can pick up immediately, take home, and display.
Add Some Memories
The appeal of the holiday season is usually found in the traditions and memories being celebrated. Displaying a collection of cards and photos will trigger storytelling of past years. A pile of treasured holiday books, playing familiar music, and making the family recipes are all good ways to quickly create a holiday atmosphere.
Retailers can utilize the CRM component in ChainDrive’s software for home decor retailers to host a “Holiday Memories” contest and offer a holiday decorating package as a prize.
