'Tis the season of carols, snow, and all kinds of beautiful holiday decorations. Decorating your apartment at East of Eleven doesn't need to be a challenge. You can get creative and bring the winter wonderland to your home. A cozy studio apartment won't fit a ten-foot spruce, but you can get some tremendous trending Christmas items for your space.
Decorations That Transition from Christmas & Into the New Year
Getting your apartment from Christmas to party-ready is simple with just a few tricks. Keeping your festive decorations through the New Year can change the atmosphere of a good celebration. Taking everything down is time-consuming and a hassle, but you can save time by taking down the red decorations! Leave up your silver and gold decorations to get into the spirit of celebration. For some extra flash of brightness, you can leave the garland up to break up all those shiny metallic colors. Keeping some decorations up saves you enough time to take a walk along Portland's beautiful Willamette River with a friend or partner and enjoy the view.
A Checklist for Creating a Winter Wonderland in Your Apartment
It wouldn't be Christmas without a tree. For safety and easy clean-up, you can't beat an artificial tree. Thankfully, the number of awesome-looking trees means you can get something that will fit into your space perfectly while looking great too. If you want to get even more green, you could drape live garland around curtains and doors to bring the scent of pine into your home, just like having a real tree.
Winter wonderland checklist:
- Get a beautiful artificial tree that fits into your space but packs up nicely for when the holidays are over.
- Live garland adds some green to your apartment, and you can get it from local businesses.
- Find some phenomenal sparkling lights to set the atmosphere.
- Find some cost-effective but fancy New Years' decorations.
What to Keep in Mind for Holiday Decorations?
Make sure the items you used to decorate take up the least amount of area possible. When packing for your apartment, keep in mind that items must fit into tight places. Choose decorations that will not stain or damage the walls or surfaces of your home.
