When you think of the quintessential "autumn" activities, they all seem to have something in common. Whether you take a walk through the woods to admire the stunning foliage, a trip to the apple orchard or pumpkin patch or are seeking out the best maple syrup, you may find yourself in the woods this season.
Fall also brings a number of people into the woods for camping or hayrides. That means that one of the best ways to dress up your store for autumn is to create a "woodsy" theme.
Getting woodsy with display fixtures
Metal clothing racks, shelves and other store fixtures are common, but nothing about them says fall. This season, invest in some rustic-looking wooden display tables. Even if you don't want to replace all of your store fixtures, displaying clothing or jackets on wood hangers in natural hues like walnut will give the store more of a forest feel.
Trays and bowls can give the feel of the trail
The items you use to display smaller merchandise on your tables and shelves can also make a huge difference. For smaller items like jewelry, arrange rustic wood replica bowls on a table or countertop. The time-worn appearance of even the tiniest fixtures in your store can create a rustic feel that evokes the great outdoors.
Bring the outdoors in
Of course, one of the best ways to give your store an outdoorsy feel is to bring aspects of nature inside! A small stack of birch logs might be a great replacement for regular risers or blocks on your display tables – they will add height and texture to your tables. Hanging ornaments or other home decor on a real branch in your window display will give even more of an outdoorsy feel.
