Is your booth ready for Christmas craft fair season?

Most booths at holiday markets have a festive flair that adds to the fun atmosphere of the show. Luckily, it's easy to spruce up your booth with some well-placed holiday decor.

Here are a few ideas to help you brighten up your own booth for holiday craft shows.

Bring Your Own Christmas Tree

Adding a Christmas tree to a corner of your booth is a simple way to include some holiday pizzazz to your display. If you make smaller items, you can display them directly on the tree.

The two photos above show larger artificial trees that are more work to transport and assemble than smaller trees.

The first photo shows a booth at a large, multi-day show while the next photo is a Christmas display at a retail shop that features handmade products. Trees this size are more sensible for use in retail shops or at longer shows where you can leave all or parts of your display up overnight.

If you aren't doing any multi-day shows, you can still use a Christmas tree in your booth. You just might want to scale down a bit with a tabletop Christmas tree as the vendor has done in the next booth.

If you're doing single day Christmas craft fairs, you'll probably be happier if you opt for a smaller tree that's more portable and easier to set up.

The slim tabletop tree shown in this photo adds height to the display and showcases a few lovely handmade Christmas ornaments. It quickly adds a holiday feel to this crafter's regular year-round display.

If you're watching your business budget carefully, and you don't already have an artificial tree you could use in your display, ask around. You might be pleasantly surprised to find a friend or family member who has an unused artificial tree that they are happy to lend or give to you for your holiday booth.

Get Some Garland

You don't want to commit to hauling a full-sized Christmas tree around to shows?

Okay. That's completely understandable. Good thing there are other, more portable ways to dress up your booth.

The next photos show four booths that are decorated for the holidays with garland. Strings of holly or evergreen boughs brightened with red berries or poinsettias quickly make your regular display Christmas-ready.

If evergreen trees grow in your area, snip some branches from your backyard (or your friend's backyard) for free Christmas booth decor in an instant. 

If you don't have access to live evergreens, or if you prefer the longevity of artificial greenery, buy some artificial evergreen garland to decorate your booth for many years to come.

Creative Christmas Craft Fair Displays

Maybe traditional Christmas reds and greens don't work with your business brand. If that's the case, you can get more creative with your holiday booth decor. 

In the next photo, you'll see a pretty white pencil tree all lit up and showing off handmade jewelry that is perfect for gift giving. It's placed strategically on the outside corner of the booth to draw attention and bring customers in.

If you're not a fan of the traditional aesthetic of Christmas decor, you need to check out the next two photos. The display features a modern holiday tree painted directly on the booth's display wall.

The modern aesthetic of the crafts pictured below doesn't really fit with more traditional Christmas decor. A traditional, bushy green Christmas tree would look completely out of place here. It might even confuse customers. But the graphic painted tree is absolutely perfect.

The first photo shows you the overall look of the display, and in the next photo, you get a closer look at the painted tree.

Notice the pegs attached to the tree. They allow for ornaments to be hung for display.

This booth is a fantastic example of how you can create a holiday display without compromising your brand or your aesthetic. Plus, since the tree is painted directly onto part of the display furniture, there's nothing extra to pack and transport.
