Adding a Festive Flare to the Shoebox!

 

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in my little city shoebox! With less than a month to go, I decided to bring out my festive décor and turn my condo into a cozy oasis for the holidays!

This year’s new addition; a Christmas tree.  A small space does not mean you have to comprise on holiday style. At first I was concerned that a Christmas tree would over power my living space, significantly cutting down on overall circulation. Luckily, I ended up finding the perfect scale tree at Hudson Bay. It has a narrow diameter (31”) and is over 7’ high, which is practical if you have limited space. I highly recommend this product (link below) from the Gluckstein Home Collection. Not only does it have integrated lighting, but the branches look authentic!

In terms of decorating the tree, I decided to mix a natural look (burlap ribbon & pinecones) with a bit of glam (silver glitter ornaments). To fill in the gaps, I used malleable silver berry branches, which added an extra touch of sparkle!

I hope you like the look :-) Next Sunday, I will be sharing more holiday décor tips!
