Good displays are more than lining up several buildings and adding lights. It is important for the
layout to flow throughout the display. Create some focal points, balance the colors and shapes, and
bring the viewer into the display. Some people prefer to learn these techniques by watching someone
else create them. Therefore, Village Display Tips has added a new division called Village Scaping.
