We were delighted to win the City Centre Ryder Cup Community competition recently, for our Red, Blue and Gold Golf Themed window displays.
We decorated our ladies’ boutique shop window in celebration of the Ryder Cup when we heard that City Centre Management were looking for us retailers to get involved in welcoming the cup to Perth. We do love any excuse to make a bit of a splash – you’ll remember our St Johnston Windows back in May! – so we set about planning and came up with gorgeous items from this year’s autumn / winter range in the colours of the European and American flags. Ladies casual and occasion wear in shades of red and blue (with touches of gold and white!) proved to be extremely eye-catching for passers-by.
We picked up the golf-club decals and some fantastic Ryder Cup bunting online and dressed our (also award-winning!!) floral planters with ‘waving’ flags – great fun in a light breeze! Because our shop front stretches across two units and around into Mill Street we reckon we made a wonderful impact in our corner of Perth. Lots of the neighbours commented on it and passers-by were clicking away at our golf themed frontage all weekend.
The best bit was our afternoon at Gleneagles with Mum when it was announced we’d won. Can’t wait for Christmas now – what will we dream up for that I wonder!
