This post could also be called, how to decorate when you have no space and a cat! Even though I live in a tiny apartment, I still get really into decorating for the holidays. The holidays are my favorite time of year and I love making my space feel festive + fun. Two years ago I got a Christmas tree, but it was a lot to handle. Pine needles everywhere, and dragging it out through my narrow hallway was a disaster. And now that I have a cat (a crazy one at that!) forget it!!
This year I opted more subtle decor from Pier 1; sticking to a glittery champagne palette! I treated the top of my dresser as a mantle; adding this garland, a gorgeous ball wreath, and some glittery accents. And then I decorated my windowsill and coffee table. This faux fur tree will just have to work as my tree this year. I’m really happy with how it turned out. Subtle, but still festive. Just add champagne + a good holiday playlist.
These glitter spheres are the most fun way to add a little sparkle to my coffee table without overwhelming it.
As an aside, twinkle lights are great for small spaces as they’re battery operated so you don’t have to deal with tons of cords getting tangled – and trying to find power outlets! I love these ones!
Last but not least, sparkling wine is always important. I keep the bottom shelf of my fridge stocked this time of year… jussst in case! How fab are these wine glasses? I love the golden waves pattern on them. I’m so klutzy so I only have stemless glasses in my apartment, but these are really pretty too.
