Sanctuary Lakes Shopping Centre

Sanctuary Lakes Shopping Centre refreshed their decorations with a new Gingerbread theme implemented over two years and made adjustments to their Santa Set in response to the pandemic.

Project Challenges

The challenge was to find a creative solution which was able to reuse the core product from the previous displays while adding in some new feature pieces within tight budget parameters. The ever changing pandemic environment necessitated a highly adaptive response.

CDS Solution

The Gingerbread theme we proposed was ideal, being colourful and playful and designed to lift community spirits. It also allowed for the reuse of selected colours from the previous Christmas theme.

Hand made decorations and several large fibreglass gingerbread display props, together with a large custom made Gingerbread backdrop completed the look over two years.

In 2020, the Santa Set was converted to a ‘selfie’ style photo opportunity and in 2021 to a socially distanced Santa photo opportunity with a larger backdrop to accommodate the expanded field of view.

The Result

Christmas Display Solutions was pleased to be able to work with the client and adapt to the ever changing circumstances brought on by the pandemic. In both years, the solutions proposed were highly effective, creating a positive and uplifting atmosphere while contributing to very successful Christmas trading periods.

“Christmas Display Solutions have been an absolute pleasure to work with. I look after several shopping centres, and having a Christmas decoration supplier that works closely with you and understands the requirements of each asset is invaluable. From pre-planning through to installation and dismantle, their team take care of everything, making Christmas time in retail that little bit less stressful”
