Christmas Decorating At The Condo

December 11, 2014

I just wanted to share my little condo decorating for Christmas this year:

Nothing special or fancy. This table was decorated around my pretty Christmas cactus that is blooming now (upper left of photo below):

I just wrote a couple weeks ago how I do not do theme Christmas trees, but I found I picked up a lot of turquoise ornaments at the end of last years season sales, so I thought why not give it a try:

I love it! Here is a clever idea for a Christmas display:

Take a tall vase, fill with silver tinsel and balls and mix in some colored balls:

Super easy and original!

How are you doing with your Christmas decorating? Do you go all out every year? Or do you find yourself taking out less decorations each year? I am definitely in the lesser group. I still enjoy decorating but have toned it down a bit each year. How about you?


  1. Hi Kelly, as always, you give us wonderful ideas – and yes, I am minimizing my decor’ at Christmas each year – less 🙂 Since I live in a small, 1 bedroom condo (high ceilings and lots of long windows though), I’m always interested in tips for condos. I also love that view out the window where you have the cute tree sitting (very simple and minimalistic). Is there a name for this lake, because it looks like a beautiful setting. More photos please of the view. Merry Christmas to you and an old-fashioned Happy New Year! Angie in Greensboro, NC 12/12/2014

  2. I can’t tell you how much your blog inspires me. I subconsciously chose blue and green for my Christmas tree this year and wondered why until now. I’m usually a burnt orange, gold and red decorator. I have the same cactus but there’s no chance of it blooming this year because I’ve under watered it.
