Pompom alert…

5 Dec

Did you know, Christmas is nearly here?  Well, it’s been here for a good few weeks in retail land and I finished work on the festive window displays for the 3 Handpicked Hall stores in November.

Pompoms feature strongly this year…a mere 350 in total. Mostly strung and hung by yours truly, from high up on a wobbly ladder!

 

The neon lights which shine at night make the pompoms change colour.  The scheme we went for was mint, claret and cream with some highlights of olive and lime green.

The window decal wording is in a beautiful bronze colour which looks fantastic but was a nightmare to stick on straight!

So, 350 pompoms fluffed and hung, 12 trees decorated (after being wrestled with to stand straight), 15 hanging hoola hoop decorations made and numerous amounts of buying, knot tying (and possibly some crying) and we’re finally ready for Christmas after another great team effort – Thanks Jil!

Now we just need to think about a new design for the January window…
