GIFTS IN BASKETS, DOUBLY DECORATIVE

If you want, you can use them as vases or as decorative objects alone.

lace a Christmas tree? Ugh, impossible. It doesn’t fit here.” If the Christmas decoration has always remained at the doors of your house because the meters prevented you, this year may be an exception by applying the advice we have given you to dress small Christmas spaces. First of all, calm down. Christmas does not have to be excessive or supervoluminosa. There are some tighter decorative options that will adapt like a glove to your floor, however small.
Did you know that there are Christmas trees less than 50 cm? With stylized and slightly bulky ornaments, the tree will fit in any corner. How about decorating the windows with a garland or a handmade crown? Not a centimeter remains at home and decorates both from the inside and from the outside, especially if you complete it with lights.
The coffee table, the dining room or the furniture of the hall are perfect to accommodate an original center with candles that, in addition, will create magical and enveloping points of light.
Do you have kids at home? Why don’t you make an advent calendar hand-in-hand with which to decorate your room in a playful way?
And that the meters are not an excuse not to open the house door to Christmas this year!
