No booth is complete without height… let me show you:

A table with no height:

Booorrriiing! Not much to look at. You eye is naturally drawn to the only height on the table…the elephants in the corner.

Now look at a table with height:

Ahhh… much better! Height makes your table seem more full. And you can actually fit more things onto it!

You can achieve this look very easily and here is how:

Let’s start with something simple, crates! Crates are easy to come by, and provide some good height for your table.

The ones pictured here are the simple unfinished wooden crates that I stained!

I added some battery powered lights to give the crates a bit of a holiday feel.

What do you put in the crates? Well…anything! I put my stuffed animals in them usually.

Now how about something on top of the crates? This is a simple little wood structure I DIYed!

I call it my “Mustache Holder” because…

 It holds my mustaches!

Here is an easy way to add a bit of height to your table, while also making it feel like you have more product:

Stack your thin items. Just slightly overlap the items you have that are relatively thin. This will give the table a wee bit of interesting height.

I got this lovely little tri basket from none other than Hobby Lobby! ($15.00 with a coupon) Something tall like this with multiple layers gives some good height to the booth.

This is another DIY.

1 1/2” dowel with 1/4” dowels stuck through it.

Cross base at the bottom so it won’t tip over and a clothes pin glued to the top to hold my “WE ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS” sign.
