Decorating for the Christmas season in a small house can present some challenges, foremost of which is the Christmas tree! When space is at a premium, it’s not easy to move or even remove furniture to accommodate a real tree. And even if you have the space for one, some apartment and condo rules prohibit real trees because of disposal and clean-up issues. Not to mention many condos also don’t have a mantel or staircase-traditional places to deck the halls! With these concerns in mind, we gathered up a few solutions for Christmas decorating in your small space!
