Must-Have Holiday Decorations for Your Condo
The holidays are here—and it’s time to sprinkle your Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens home with some seasonal magic. Aside from the usual tree, there’s a plentitude of ways to give your place pizzazz during December—creating wow factor for family and guests alike. Let’s get decking those halls.
Have Them at “Happy Holidays”
Make your home sing “Seasons Greetings!” before anyone’s even stepped in the door. A wreath crafted from natural materials makes for a classy door hanging. If you don’t have time to make your own, turn to a local florist like South Pasadena Flower Gallery, which is selling this front-door-ready pine cone-studded wreath. The living room window is the perfect spot for festive lights; keep it elegant with these LED curtain lights from Etsy.
That Seasonal Scent
Not only do the flickering flames of candles lend a cozy, nostalgic feel to your home, but there’s an array of alluring aromas to choose from. Waft a warming bouquet of cinnamon and orange through your condo with the White Company’s Winter Signature Candle or release the fresh perfume of fir, eucalyptus, rosemary, and peppermint into your townhome with Diptyque’s Sapin de Nuit number. You can make your candle displays extra special by decorating them accordingly: think candy canes arranged on sprays of pine branches or a mix of dried orange slices and cinnamon sticks.
We’re not talking about gift wrapping here but, rather, wrapping up yourself. Keep a basket of blankets by the sofa so that any time the temperature takes a dive, you’re armed with this essential winter warmer. Try this white pom-pom blanket from The Little Market—it reminds us of snowballs!
Branch Out from the Usual Tree
As well as—or even instead of—a tree this year, why not go for a garland? A pine-enveloped staircase is a wonderful way to bring the outdoors in. Garlands can be plenty of fun too; use ribbons, ornaments, and glimmering lights to bring yours to life. Bee Cottage Pasadena will fix you up with festoons. And another top tip: Homage Pasadena has some wonderfully playful felt ornaments, including Harriet Tubman, Albert Einstein, and figure-skating mice!
Trimming the Tabletop
Create a tabletop wonderland to dine on by adding a few simple decorative garnishes. Seasonal tablecloths and napkins perhaps go without saying—but you can raise your game with a little help from Pasadena florist Twigzz. Using freshly snipped winter flowers and greenery, these pros will make it look like the season of goodwill has blossomed right there on your table!
