It’s time to think about Christmas decorating! It will be here before we know it! Here are a few tips on decorating your pub for that festive time.
Before placing any decorations get rid of any unnecessary items which have been hanging about the place. Remove out of date posters and A4 pieces of paper. Clear the backbar counter and simplify the display. Put any non essential items into storage to create space for a tree and decorations.
Filter out existing decorations and decide what you have that will go with this years scheme. If its not in good condition then bin it (unless it has an antique quality about it!) If you have never had a coordinated scheme then now is the time to invest in a good quality package that will last.
3. Colour Scheme
Use a colour scheme that is best suited to your Premises. The 3 schemes that are shown here will probably go with most Pubs as they are simple and classic.
4. What to use?
We recommend going for the traditional wreaths/ branches and garlands albeit variations of those. For a classic look we really don’t recommend Santas and Snowmen, and eleve. Don’t over do it with quantity, 1 item in each seating bay or area and garlands along the backbar or bar bulkhead. Garlands look well on fireplaces and staircases too.
Here are some insitu pictures which show the application of decoration.
