Taking down the Fairy lights in your Pub or Club

I took my Christmas decorations down last weekend along with the vast majority of the population.  As usual there were more than last year as I couldn’t resist a pair of gold glittery Turtle Doves for the tree! And as my parents taught me I carefully wound the fairy lights around pieces of cardboard before putting them in the crumbling box because as we all know once they are off the tree they have secret dances at night and 365 days later are tangled up beyond recognition!

But the point of my story isn’t the demonic Christmas lights but the fact that – Doesn’t the house look sad now all the lights are down?!  It’s drab and dull and grey – just like the January weather outside.  We can see now that our walls, not entirely devoid of blu tac and tinsel, need a fresh lick of paint and  the carpet could with a deep clean.  That magical fairy dust scattered by those twinkling LED’s seemed to spread a little happiness and we smiled more and socialised more and spent more on our festive cheer.

So what can you do to re-capture this wonderful feel good atmosphere. So many pubs, clubs and restaurants use this time to re-evaluate their offer to their customers and their pub furniture requirements. Revamping, de-cluttering and renewing – introducing some comfy chairs, more restaurant tables and perhaps a pub sofa or comfy seating to encourage longer stays in the pub and increase their customers spend per head after the frenetic ‘cram ‘em in’ Christmas and New Year period.  And of course, what could be better than a cosy pint in front of a roaring fire sitting in a beautiful leather Wing Chair or Chesterfield sofa – the bastion of the Great British Pub – make the very most of it if you have one!

However, I think I will advocate another route too.  How about Fairy lights all year round!! – perhaps different colours for different seasons or occasions – A great look for your pub or club! Green for St Patrick's Day and most certainly Red for Valentines………Can you feel a plan coming together?!
