5 Ways To Decorate Your Victoria Condo For the Holidays

The holiday season is firmly upon us, and one of the most enjoyable parts of this time of year is getting your space spruced up and decorated for the holidays! Are you a minimalist, decking the halls with twinkling lights and understated flair? Or are you a traditionalist, with fake snow adorning countertops and a big old angel on top of the tree? There’s no wrong way to decorate for the season but we thought we’d help out with some tips on decorating a smaller space to maximize holiday cheer!

Choose The Perfect Christmas Tree

The tree is always the centerpiece of any festive holiday scene, and picking the perfect one can be a task in and of itself.  Always make sure to check with any strata or management to check any requirements for trees in your condo, as many buildings have put a moratorium on live trees in small spaces due to hazards. In today’s market, there are plenty of synthetic options that will give you that Christmas feeling, nice and safe! You can buy them pre-lit, or bring out the box of decorations and make a family affair out of it.

Incorporate Art from Local Artisans

A wonderful aspect of a smaller space is that you’re able to be more intentional with the pieces of art you choose. Not worried about filling wall space, you can opt for more locally made artisan pieces, from prints to jewelry to household items and bath products, Victoria is full of local stars and incredible products, and we’ve even included a couple below. 

  1.  Ebb & Flow Jewelry 
  2.  Bliston Creek Farm 
  3.  Skookum Prints

Decorate With Christmas Baking Recipes

There is truly nothing like the smell of fresh baked christmas goodies wafting through the house! No matter what your palette, we have recipes galore to help you get into the spirit. Plus they make an easy and thoughtful gift in a pinch! Make a day of it with your family or decompress with a solo baking session and spread some cheer for yourself. 

Light Up Gingerbread House – Fun Christmas Cheer

Take the traditional gingerbread house and turn it on its head with this fun light up gingerbread house, utilizing crushed hard candies to make the windows and placing a flameless tea light inside to let the colours shine through (don’t forget to turn the light off when you’re not using it!)

Apple Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Icing – A sinful combination of holiday flavours

Granny Smith apples, a blend of nutmeg and cinnamon and a healthy dose of cream cheese icing makes this holiday favourite great for any occasion. Bring to a holiday party or serve for a dessert after a dinner of your own.

Pumpkin Cheesecake – A twist on a holiday fave

This one takes some prep work, and is for the very patient, with a 6 hour resting period and fairly tough prep time, but the end result is worth it! For those who associate pumpkin pie with the holidays, we have a special twist on an old favourite by taking that pie filling and making it into cheesecake filling! Experiment with crusts and toppings to make it your own.

Decorate Your Condo With Christmas Crafts

For added brightness and cozy feelings, why not decorate with some homemade Christmas crafts! Using standard household materials, a little bit of love, and a fun evening or two you can adorn your condo space with Upcycled Bottle Candle Holders, maybe on the dinner table? Expecting company? Why not try out a Mason Jar Santa Suit Cozy, utilizing just some duct tape and mason jars, you can even personalize them so everyone knows who’s who! Finally there is always room on the tree for a homemade ornament or two, and if you have little ones especially, we recommend some Clothes Pin Carolers! This project utilizes nothing more than clothespins, paint and pompoms!  

Lighting, Lighting, Lighting

Especially when dealing with a more cozy space you always want to accentuate the room’s best qualities with high quality lighting. The advantage to a condo space is that you can really customize your lighting display, with LED lighting strips that can be programmed to flash christmas colours, or just provide a nice warm glow for when you’re sitting around having drinks or some snacks. To light the tree, you can’t go wrong with those little twinkling lights to conserve energy and still keep that gorgeous tree lit and visible. For your patio, a modest display is always best, showing the spirit without blinding the neighbourhood.
