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.

Three Vintage China Styles To Rent

by Luke Patterson

When you need to rent a quantity of china for an upcoming event, you don't necessarily have to choose items that have a new look. While some people might favor modern-looking chinaware, being able to have vintage items is also desirable. Look online for a rental company in your area that specializes in vintage china. It can be fun to browse the available styles, as you'll find that they're often a significant visual departure from modern designs. These companies often have a variety of vintage china sets that are available for rent, so you can expect to see these three eye-catching styles.


Floral print china was very popular several decades ago, so it's common to see a lot of these designs when you browse the options at a vintage china rental company. Commonly, there will be delicate floral designs around the edges of plates and the rims of bowls. These flowers can vary a lot in color and appearance. If you have a specific color for your event — blue, for example — you can have fun looking for vintage chinaware that features blue flowers. If you don't have a color theme and you just want your chinaware to be as colorful as possible, you'll see many patterns that feature all sorts of floral colors.


If you want your rented chinaware to have a regal look, a set that features gold can be a good choice. While you might not see plates and bowls that are entirely gold, it's very common to see white chinaware that has gold detailing around the edges. Some of these designs are very subtle — one or two thin gold lines, for example. Others can be more elaborate, with a wide range of gold designs. Think about what specific look would best suit your event, and then choose an appropriate set.

Textured White

If you want a set of vintage chinaware that offers more of a subtle look, there are lots of products that solely feature white. Instead of choosing a plain set, look for something that features some texturing. For example, lots of vintage china will have ridges or bumps around the perimeter of the plate or bowl, which can offer just a little more style than a plain white design, but without being too visually stimulating. This style can work well for events that you want to have a clean look. Browse these and other vintage china products for rent.
