In preparing your displays for Valentine’s, it’s important to understand what items are impact items and whicharrangements draw attention. Some flowers draw attention more than others, and it’s important to know when to use them in arrangements and where to display them for your customers. For Valentine’s, of course roses are right up there with impact items that can lure the eyes of consumers, but lets look at some other items that can garner the attention of many customers. Here are some helpful ideas for displaying Valentine’s impact items.
Orchids and Tulips are two flowers that draw attention for Valentine’s because they are a favorite to many and have natural beauty. Tulips have a very elegant look to them and come in an array of beautiful and vibrant colors. It’s important to take proper care while displaying your Tulips though because they continue to grow while in water (possibly 1-6 inches).
Tulips are a beautiful impact flower and would look great in a storefront designed to draw people into the store. Keep in mind though that you do not want to store tulips in full sun, near heaters, or under lamps because heat shortens the life of blooming flowers. The best environment is in cooler temperatures whenever possible. Orchids are another delicate beauty that remain one of the more popular variety of flowers. Orchids showcase such a natural beauty, that it’s common to display Orchids in unique ways. For some display ideas, just look around your home or store for ordinary objects commonly used for other purposes, then transform them into a planter used for displaying the Orchid. With Tulips, Orchids and other impact arrangements, it’s wise to make them part of your centerpiece that you plan to showcase for your store. You want consumers to see unique and beautiful arrangements so they can pick and choose what they like and what they want for their loved one. If you plan to offer candy, stuffed animals, or other goodies, you may want to display these items near your floral display so consumers understand the options they have.
When displaying impact items in your store, it’s important to display arrangements in areas of your store that is exposed to consumers. You do not want your impact arrangements hidden or out of sight. In the front of the store towards the window displays would be a nice place to display your beautiful arrangements because it can invite customers into the store. Keep in mind that you do not want to store the flowers in full sun, near heaters, or under lamps because heat shortens the life of blooming flowers.
