Photos of Hari Raya Aidilfitri Indoor Display
Native baskets are use for hamper-making. These are filled with chocolates, candies, fruits and other grocery items and are given as gifts to friends and colleagues.
To bring the ambiance of Hari Raya Festival in the store, different display related to this season were set up, banners were hung along the roadside, lagu raya or Hari Raya songs are played, customized store’s shopping bag with Hari Raya designs are used and items that in demand during this season like decoration lights, decorative ketupats, food and drinks servers, table cloths and curtains are displayed in high visibility. The picture of a display I show here is only one the the many display I have mentioned and I look forward to add more photos of the different displays related to Hari Raya soon.
In our display, we have put the Soga glass canisters on a table and chairs set together with the new arrival table and cushion cover. The reasons of putting the glass canisters in the center of the display are, first, the glass canisters are special offer and second, canisters are used as containers of candies, cookies and kuih raya during this season. I am not very sure, but as far as I know, kuih is any sort of sweet snacks that are served during open house. It could also be commonly observe that people who are celebrating this season are buying new furniture, home decorations, new kitchenware and more.
The display is a combination new arrival, special offer, other discounted items and of course the props. The big paper dolls that was created by Dong Salvar (one of my co- visual merchandisers) were from our Hari Raya display last year. When the children sees the paper dolls, they say, “Look, Upin dan Ipin!” even it is a pair of boy and girl dolls. Upin & Ipin is a Malaysian animated television series which features the life and adventures of the eponymous twin brothers in a fictional Malaysian village.
