If you love the magic and sparkle of the holiday season, then having a festive property is a must! If you’re like most businesses, then you are limited by your budget. Don’t worry; you can still create the ambiance you’re looking for and stay within your budget.

Your secret: layering.

What is Layering?

Layering is when you build and enhance your property by adding a few contemporary pieces every year. Here’s an example.

Picture an entranceway with large glass doors and an overhang.

Year 1

Maybe the first year, you add decorated garland along the overhang.

Year 2

The next year, you incorporate large props, like toy soldiers, to flank the doors.

Year 3

For the following season, you add a large wreath or light curtains above the doorway.

You can continue to build and grow your program a little at a time, which keeps each year fresh and new for your shoppers.
