Gift shop displays

I have spent a couple of days re-doing the displays at the gift shop. I just love working there even though I am exhausted when I get home. The Christmas stock is starting to arrive so I will spend a day displaying that next week. As soon as I walked in the other day I spied these cushions!!! I just loved the soft green and teamed with the grey I think they make a great display.
Doesn’t this day bed look inviting??? As you can  see the shadows where starting to come across as it was late afternoon. I find this area quite hard to photograph as it has the large window behind but this is usually the first display I do…something eye catching for the window. This spotted china is just gorgeous. I’m thinking I might have to buy this myself…maybe if I ask Secret Santa nicely!!!
Aren’t the little bowls beautiful??
Another display I did was with the black and white china. Sometimes black and white looks a bit nothing by itself so I usually try to bring a pop of colour into the display. This week I used bright pink. I had found this roll of wrapping paper in pink with little French ladies and their poodles. It was just enough to give the display a lift. You will also notice a couple of glass cloches….these are just for Marty with her cloche party this week!!

Oh my Suzy! I love it all! You do such nice displays too. But everything is so gorgeous, the lounge, the china, the pottery....especially the spotted dishes! Those little tea pots are sweet. I have seen those here in my area lately, so sweet.
Christmas stuff coming in already! Wow, times flies!

Oh, my gosh....I LOVE the green and gray together!!!!!!!! It's beautiful!!! I could just eat those kind of plaid gray and white bowls up!!! The polka dots are cute, too, and they look good paired with the plaid. Love those huge vases displayed near the window, too!!!


Beautiful displays under glass my friend. Green and gray is fabulous, I've never did this combo..umm The white bowls with the black candle creamers inside and the black wire rack is gorgeous! You did a fabulous job! Big hugs,

I would find it hard to resist shopping there. Lots of great items. I can see a tablescape in the making with those dishes. Great displays!

Love the spotted dishes, or polka dots as we call them. Very cute! Our stores have the Christmas out already!
