Christmas Decor for a Small Apartment

Living in a small apartment doesn't offer many options for elaborate holiday decor. With a little ingenuity, however, I've created a lovely holiday-themed apartment. A miniature lighted Christmas tree carefully placed on my side table greets visitors as they enter my home. Making good use of my front room window, I have adorned it with decor, using tinsel and garland, as well as miniature stockings hung with suction cups. As a festive alternative, you might try hanging shiny ornaments on the window in much the same way. If your apartment is designed with a staircase, decorate the banister. Use garland, tinsel, holly or even holiday greeting cards. Finally, if your apartment is furnished with a fireplace, decorate the mantel. I've placed a two-foot tall animated and musical Santa on my mantel. I hope my blog gives you some fun decorating ideas for your small home.

Flowers Throughout The Year: The Many Occasions Your Florist Can Help You Celebrate

by Luke Patterson

Supporting your local florist is a great way to help your local economy. Fresh flowers are also a beautiful addition to your home, and a thoughtful gesture of love. Many people automatically think to call the florist for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, funerals, and Valentine's day, but what about the rest of the year? Here are some occasions that could benefit from the addition of a beautiful bouquet. 

  • January: Start the new year off with a new houseplant. A potted herb or hardy indoor shrub can help to brighten up a dreary winter, and add fresh air to your home.
  • February: Commemorate Groundhog Day with a bright, cheerful bouquet. Colorful spring flowers are a great way to celebrate an early spring, or a consolation if the verdict is six more weeks of winter.
  • March: Greenery such as ivy and ferns can be a great addition to your home for St. Patrick's Day.
  • April: A bunch of tulips or daisies are a great way to say "Happy Easter!" Spring flowers are a great symbol of new life, and can be especially cheerful during this time of year.
  • May: Carnations or roses for Mother's Day can represent the beauty and purity of motherhood. They are also a thoughtful way to tell your mother or wife that you love and appreciate her.
  • June: The beginning of summer is often marked with picnics and outdoor activities. Why not decorate for these events with a beautiful arrangement of hibiscus or other tropical flowers?
  • July: Celebrate Independence Day with a festive red, white and blue bouquet. Your florist can help you to design an arrangement that is both beautiful and patriotic.
  • August: Why not welcome the start of the school year with a small flower arrangement for your child's teacher? If it is placed in a cute pencil cup, it will be a gift she can use throughout the year.
  • September: Choose a beautiful bouquet for your home as an observance of Labor Day. Relax, spend time with family, and enjoy a day of rest.
  • October: A pot of mums can be a great way to decorate for Halloween or harvest celebrations. Your florist may even have decorative containers that can add a touch of excitement to your fall decor.
  • November: A floral centerpiece can be especially beautiful for your Thanksgiving feast. Fall colors, leaves, and woven baskets can add just the right touch to your table.
  • December: Poinsettias, amaryllis, and lilies are a beautiful addition to your home for Christmas. Your florist can make these simple houseplants look fabulous for the season.

Throughout the year, beautiful flowers can brighten your home and add cheer to any celebration. There is always a good reason to call a local florist like Holmes McDuffy Florist Inc.
