Window Dressing for Booth Display - Hang It UP
November 06, 2012
This post is all about ideas for hanging stuff UP.
What could be more simple and fantastic than a tangle of hangers to create an innovative background? A perfect theme for anything clothing related.
Metallic gold hangers have a completely different look.
White hangers look just as fantastic!
Remove the shelf and HANG UP what you are selling. This works extremely well for water pitchers or cups.
Or put handles on your trays and platters to display your work. Where possible, hang up your scarves, or jewelry. This increases visibility and makes your display more dynamic.
Painted white twigs seem like a great idea for a holiday show...but don't overfill the twigs with merchandise. The twigs are your eye-catching focal point and you don't want to lose the drama.
Below the display uses a peg board for display in a whole new way.
Hang up anything.
When a display is both metaphoric and a fantastic display, it becomes a real winner. Look at this display for books made with pencils.
In the video below, watch how the display with pencils is constructed.
Wondering ....what to do with those old cassettes or video tapes?
JUST DRAPE THE TAPE... Tapes aren't that strong, but certainly strong enough to catch the eye. Practically speaking you could always camouflage some mono-filament fishing line for strength.
Building the fixtures (like this piano) may take too long...but I am thinking, what about the jewel boxes from C.D.s? Glue them together in a grid. Build a front to your display to camouflage the legs.
What could be easier than helium balloon letters?
In this window for Bergdorf Goodman the helium letters spell out the store name. The brilliant orange dress really works as a focal point. You could use a variation of this idea to spell out your name. Remember the post "YOUR Name on Display" suggests getting your name up high.
Velvet ropes are a great idea evocative of the holidays, theater, and elegance.
The sweep of the velvet ropes also creates eye-catching movement.
A brilliantly colored blind would be a great backdrop. The great thing about this idea is that the blind collapses for travel. ADD your name on top...or open the blind to reveal something behind.
Look at these other amazing ideas for suspending creativity in the air by Ken Marten. They both use Vaseline as an adhesive.
Blue flower petals are inspired...I can also imagine this with autumn leaves.
The whole idea for this series of posts is to be inspired by display ideas from either stores or window displays. Think about how your booth can be remarkable!
