I can’t believe it’s that time of year again. Time to deck the halls and get in the Christmas spirit! Christmas is only 16 days away and my apartment isn’t decorated.

The manfriend and I haven’t decided if we’ll buy a tree this year. It’s such a hassle to move or remove furniture to accommodate a tree in our small apartment. We are thinking of an alternative. If you are like me and have a small space, below are a few alternative christmas decor inspiration

Do you have floating shelves? Rearrange them from smallest to largest. Use cedar and some pines to create the look of a tree.

 I hope this was helpful. Let the decoration begin!
