Two weeks ago, I was playing around with ideas for my display booth (which I’m hoping to do at ENK Children’s Club in August). Being that my new boys’ clothing line, Downtown Joey, is manufactured here in NYC, I figured “Downtown” was the perfect theme for my booth! I based the design on my web site graphics:
Instead, I found this awesome City Light Backdrop which is 8 feet high by 12 feet long (I’ll need 3 of them to line all 3 walls). It’s $159 from Stumps Prop and Party web site, but a little more Googling and I found it at Target for only $99…SCORE!
Behind the city backdrop, I’ll use Ocean Blue Seamless Backdrop Paper from B & H Photo. I’ll only need 2 rolls of the 53 inch tall size as the city light backdrop with cover most of the walls:
I’ll have to get crafty and make a big cardboard cutout of the boy silhouette:
Don’t know if I’ll spring for it this year, but I was thinking these gray interlocking foam tiles would be great for flooring:
and then I could use some yellow electrical tape to make street lanes on the foam tiles:
For my garment rack, I was inspired by this bridge prop:
I have two of these garment racks:
I’ll add cardboard on each side to simulate a bridge:
To further give the feel of a city scene, I’ll add other props:
A traffic light like this in the back corner of the booth would be great:
Or one like this:
I also found some cool children’s street signs:
I found a seller on eBay who has dozens of 12 inch aluminum traffic signs:
or I can order a big 24 inch sign from this seller.
I’ll use the stop sign for the front of my table so buyers will know to stop and order:
I’m going to order some custom street signs. Not sure exactly what I’ll have printed–perhaps “Broadway” or “Wall Street:”
Another neat prop was this fire hydrant toddler table. I could use to as a riser for one of the mannequins:
or just get a fake fire hydrant:
I could always dress up as a fire hydrant:
And of course, I have the perfect giveaway…CARAMEL APPLES! How clever!
I have a few months to finalize my plans. I’m sure I’ll come up with a few more ideas in the meantime. Stay tuned!
