Colorful Fall Fabrics & Accessories Create Festive Settings

November 10, 2009

The Fall & Winter holiday season is upon us with sixteen days left until Thanksgiving. Now is the opportune time to make use of colorful fall fabrics and accessories to accent your showroom and outdoor living space for the festivities.

Fall squash is abundant this time of year and helps to add colorful accents to tabletop displays. Fall leaves and acorns scattered around the squash and adorned with a pumpkin scented candle complete the arrangement.

Consider serving apple cider to your customers and guests, the aroma will immediately send messages of family gatherings, festive times and the fall season. Your customers and friends are more likely to sit a while enjoying this autumn treasure. This will allow them to learn more about the furniture and accessories that you have to offer in your store, or spend time with your treasured friends. Another treat is a ripe crisp Granny Smith or Delicious Red apple. Set a basket of apples on a dining table or cocktail table and offer these as well.

Embellish a table to create a new presentation. This will motivate your staff and make the holiday season feel close at hand. Change out colorful throw pillows on a deep seating arrangement with some autumn fabric color throw pillows, such as Sunbrella’s Shadow Pumpkin or Sunbrella’s Ombre Dark Brown/Salmon/Beige. This is an inexpensive way to make your showroom appear fresh and new, as well as, welcoming, inviting and up to date.

These subtle changes are simple and easy yet memorable, just like our family get together during Thanksgiving, a time for thanks.
