Response so far to Trade Stand’s Colour Scheme

Well as you can see from the comments submitted below, against the story titled “Pick a colour scheme for my Trade Stand”, there is currently a clear leader ….

1st Place ‚  is Option 3 ‚  – to co-ordinate with my business’ colour scheme of chocolate brown, sky blue and orange.

2nd Place is Option 1 – a predominantly green theme.

3rd Place is Option 2 – for a rich display of red and purple.

So if you have a view too, please submit your comments below and a final count will be taken next week.

Thanks to everyone who has posted a comment.

Pick a Colour Scheme for my Trade Stand


I need your help. ‚   I can’t make up my mind which colour scheme I should use for my trade stand at this year’s Ayr Flower Show in August.

The centre piece of my Trade Stand ‚  will be ‚  a beautiful rose arch, that Jo (a florist) and I will decorate with entwined ‚  twigs and a selection of foliage and flowers dependent upon the colour scheme selected.

We ‚  hope to ‚  have a black backdrop to the arch, so please imagine the arch shown above standing at the rear of ‚  a 2m depth ‚  by 3m length ‚  space.

So ‚  please let me know which of the ‚  3 colour schemes you think would attract your attention most if you were passing by:

  1. Predominantly green, using different shades of green foliage and green flowers amongst ‚  entwined white twigs, with clear glass beads for sparkle.
  2. Rich display of red and deep purple flowers wired to the white twigs with minimal ‚  green foliage, with a central hanging miniature chandelier of red glass beads and fabric butterflies.
  3. To co-ordinate with my business colour scheme of brown, sky blue and orange, we could use natural coloured twigs entwined ‚  around the arch with some green foliage but also a mixture of blue and orange flowers, and ‚  a selection of hanging fabric insects.
