With spring and Easter just around the corner, what better time to start making new seasonal displays?
Here are our top tips for creating attention-grabbing displays this spring, as well as some ideas if you’re stuck on how to design.
Spring is all about the colours; flowers blooming, everything coming to life. So make sure your displays are bursting with colour too!
Every season, Pantone releases a new colour report – inspired by the biggest fashion runways, showing the on-trend colours you’ll be seeing everywhere for the upcoming season.
And this spring is no different; below are the top 10 colours for spring 2016.
As you can see, spring is the time when the subdued hues of winter are swapped out for some brighter colours.
Tip # 2
When people think of spring, one of the first things they think of are flowers – daffodils, blossom trees, daisies…
Fake flowers are a perfect way to bring the uplifting colours of spring into your home – they look great and will never need watering!
Many different potted plants can be brought (such as these ones), however creating your own arrangement gives a nice personal touch. Like in the photo below, you could use multiple stems or even combine different flowers and foliage in a vase, to create a one-of-a-kind arrangement.
Larger branches (such as these ones) are ideal for window displays, and are sure to catch the eye of passers by.
Don’t forget the animals! So many baby animals are born in the spring; bunnies, calves, lambs, squirrels and ducklings… to name just a few. In the table scene below, we used a wisteria flower spray, (in fuchsia too!) and some baby rabbits, both from our new 2016 spring collection. We also used a few replica moss stones, as well as some loose flowers and a cute little chick. The grass printed fabric creates a good backdrop.
Not only does this little display idea only take up a small amount of space, it doesn’t take a lot of time to recreate either.
Extra display idea:
We created the display scene below, focusing on using the colourful pastels that are this year’s spring colours. Our giant yellow chick is the star of the nest, surrounded by smaller fluffy chicks. We added pretty pink blossom flowers around the edge of the nest, for a nice spring touch. Lastly, little chenille chicks in assorted colours have also been placed around the outside of the nest, as well as some butterflies and little birds.
(The scene also appears on the cover of our 2016 Spring & Easter brochure – grab a free copy here!)
