    Color Scheme
  • Any color combination will do.

    General Decorations
  • Decorate with lots of shoes.
  • Make an announcement and have your ladies bring in any shoes they no longer want. Use them to decorate with. Donate them to a local charity when you are finished.
  • If you have some boots or in toed shoes, such as pumps, fill them up with greenery or plants for some unique arrangements.
  • Cut footprints out of paper and place along the main walkway in a path with tape.

    For The Tables
  • You might be able to come up with some 'slipper' knick knacks made of porcelain.
  • An alternative to 'real' shoes are the princess shoes for little girls in the toy department. They are reasonably priced. (Can sometimes find at $stores)
  • Check with a local shoe store to see if they have any shoe store 'shopping bags', the type with handles or use shoe boxes and fill with flowers and greenery trailing out to make a nice arrangement.

    Focal Point
  • Shoe Display - Make a display with lots of shoe store shopping bags, shoe boxes, and a variety of shoes. Use the boxes as levels, placing all different ways to create some interest with the bags and shoes added in at all angles. Use everything from baby shoes up to large men's boots for a variety. Add in some trailing vines or greenery.
