If you haven't decorated your store for the festive season yet, then we recommend you get started! Here are some practical decoration tips to get your store in the Christmas spirit right away. We'll also show you what other options there are for decorating your store for Christmas besides red Christmas tree baubles and white paper stars.

Christmas baubles are beautiful, classic decorative ornaments, but they don’t necessarily have to just embellish a Christmas tree. They are also striking as ceiling decorations. What’s more, this allows you to free up space on the sales floor.

Tinsel is one of the classics when it comes to decorative elements for Christmas. Originally, the silver metal strips symbolized the icicles on a Christmas tree. These days, the ornament comes in many different colors and designs.

Traditional Christmas motifs such as Christmas baubles and Christmas trees in unusual colors like pink, purple, lavender purple, aquamarine, powder blue, aventurine, turquoise and every color in between make perfect eye catchers.
