Christmas is a great time of year to decorate many kinds of retail stores because shoppers have become accustomed to seeing extravagant displays. Have fun with themes that will transform window shoppers into buyers one room at a time. Christmas shop merchandise can complement any room, style and budget. Try a Christmas-by-the-sea display, traditional Christmas displays or high tech displays.

Front Door Shop Display

Starting with a front door display, dress the window with a wreath made out of pine cones, chinaberries and seashell clusters. Wrap the door with holiday wrapping paper and don't forget the big red bow. Decorate the door frame with alternating pine cones, chinaberries and clusters of seashells.

Use colour coordinated Christmas lights to frame the window and imitation snow on the display window floor.

Place a mannequin family in front of the door each carrying beautifully wrapped Christmas gifts.

The Entry Shop Display

Imagine a foyer shop display all dressed up for Christmas. Decorate a hanging coat-rack that is designed to hold up to ten winter coats with ten Christmas angels, one above each coat hook.

Decorate a baker's rack in the foyer with ten of small poinsettias planted in crystal cups and glasses lined with chinaberries, on the top shelf. Display holiday candles on the middle shelf. Display Christmas gift bags stuffed with tissue and topped off with small wrapped boxes.

Living room Shop Display

Use small stuffed toys as Christmas ornaments and colour-coordinated bows on the Christmas tree. Top the tree with a small stuffed toy decorated with a bow. The small stuffed toys and bows can be embellished with glitter.

Decorate the fireplace mantel with a collection of Santa Clause Dolls with sleighs packed with small Christmas gifts. Display Christmas cards behind each Santa.

Dinning Room Display

Decorate the walls of the display walls with Christmas plates framed with small white lights. Use a dozen embellished Christmas candles down the middle of the dinning room table with a themed holiday runner underneath.

Holiday place mats made to look like wrapped gifts complement any Christmas table display. Coordinate the place mat colours with the Christmas candles.

Door Frames

Decorate a shop window with door frames wrapped with Christmas wrapping paper and bows. Use bright strings of Christmas lights on the wrapped door frames.
