Friday 31st October 2014 not only saw the UK basked in the warmest Halloween on record with temperatures souring to the 20s, but for many the busiest commercially on record too. We Brits have been behind the USA in enthusiasm for this annual festival, but have certainly caught on with all bells ringing. The scale of Halloween has grown beyond a few children 'trick or treating' door to door, with adults of all ages dressing up and partying the entire weekend - great news for retailers who saw Halloween stock literally flying of their shelves on broomsticks!
Visitors to Harrogate Christmas & Gift in recent years will have noticed the steady increase in Halloween ranges at the show and will be spoilt for choice when looking for some exciting ghoulish products in 2015 - don't miss Floralsilk on Stand B1, Gisella Graham on Stand M14-16, Heaven Sends on C37 and Premier Decorations in H1.
Premier's new 'Christmas Stories' for 2015
One of the main attractions on the Premier Decorations stand at Harrogate Christmas & Gift 2015 will be a truly innovative collection of new themed ranges that Premier believe will introduce the theatre of Christmas across not only Tree Trim but also Table and Room Decorations and Glass Ornaments.
A new Buyer, with over 20 years experience in this area, has recently joined the Premier team and as a result a new emphasis has been applied to sourcing new design led product that appeals specifically to the British and Irish market.
Featuring more unique designs than ever before, each of the eight new themes has its own specific colour palettes to help customers create their very own Christmas Stories in store. They range from Traditional to Contemporary, with one even being described as Traditional, with a twist! The ultimate aim is to inspire customers to create their own interpretation of each stunning collection.
One of the first opportunities to view these exciting new ranges alongside their inspirational displays, will in the Premier Decorations Hall H from January 11th to the 14th.
