Color:  any

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.

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)

Fill shoe boxes with flowers and greenery trailing out to make a nice arrangement. 

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.
