Ideas Needed for Store Windows!!!


Recommended Posts

:)Hey Anybody that has any ideas for store window displays, I would like your help! I live in a small town, with two old empty stores, with huge display windows on Main Street. I have decorated them in the past and have used themes like -blue christmas, -gold christmas -nativity -carolers -even a christmas livingroom scene complete with fireplace, tree and all the extra trimmings. Anyway I am looking to plan my window displays so I would like any wild and exciting Ideas you have. -Note I have access to a large private collection of blowmolds to use and love to use them, so anything incorporating a blowmold or two is awesome. -Final note I am incharge of the windows and I have access to as many as 9, the smaller windows being 5 foot by 5 foot.

Thanks in advance!!! :)

Welcome to PC! We're glad to have you. The store window displays sound great! And blow molds are the way to go for sure! Maybe a Christmas bakery scene, you could use Union gingerbread kids and some of the elves. Lots of ways to use molds there. Or possibly do a roof top scene, make a chimney, use blow mold sleigh and reindeer set. So many things you can do..please keep us posting on your progress once you do decide on your windows..and don't forget the pictures!

What about a "Nightmare Before Christmas" theme?! That way you can put it up for Halloween and keep it up through Christmas! Some Funkins, Christmas lights, a few bats, skeletons, Christmas presents, a Christmas tree decorated with Halloween decor, and to top it off fake snow everywhere! You don't necessarily have to have any of the characters from Nightmare Before Christmas, just something that has that feel. It should be LOADS of fun! Plus it will save you some time having to decorate for Halloween AND Christmas!

OR

You can do each window as a different Christmas scene, but EVERYTHING (and I mean everything) is covered/made out of candy! A local department store did that for a few years around Christmas time, and each window had a different scene. They didn't necessarily do Christmas scenes each year, but they REALLY were awesome to look at. LITERALLY crowds around the windows each night looking at the details! One year they did Fairy Tales, the next would be various winter scenes, and so on. LOTS of creativity!

Welcome to PC.

I saw it mentioned, but a furniture store he did an amazing scene. She had ceiling to floor windows. Covered the floor with snow. Had an animated Santa and Mrs. Claus. At the base of the characters a train ran around the scene. Had a little village. Had life size carolers. A huge Christmas tree. And she had a life size Nativity scene that she separated the two scenes by a curtain.

It was amazing fascinated me every year...sadly I never got pics and the one year I went to get pics they didn't do it...why because they retired and sold off everything. I now own the train, but was late on getting Santa and Mrs. Claus.

What ever you decide post pics.

Hey Richard I know what you mean by missing your chance at owning some cool Christmas history. I was at an auction about a year ago and it was an older couple, that owned a furniture store for 30+ yrs. and they had amazing animated figures for all different displays. They had over 30 pieces and on average they all sold for about 30-40dollars ea. If I was smart and older, I would've bought them all. I estimate that I easily could've brought them all home for right around 6thousand dollars, which sounds like a lot but is nothing when you compare to what they sell for on ebay. -Not to mention the couple had a huge 200 piece dept. 56 village collection. I wish i could go back and change it all... haha :) -sweet wishes...
