Easy Ways to Decorate Your Apartment for the Holidays

December 14, 2021

If you want to decorate your apartment for the holidays, but don’t know where to start, have a limited budget or don’t have room for a full size tree, there are plenty of other options to make your home festive. Below are some of our favorite ideas to decorate your apartment for the holidays on a budget that are sure to impress your guests!

Who said ornaments are just for the tree? Hang extra ornaments from light fixtures for a festive feel from a new angle. You can also use them to fill large vases and glass jars to add a pop of color.


One of the easiest ways to decorate your apartment for the holidays (or any time of the year) is with a beautiful wreath. Hang it on your front door or any free wall space. Easily buy one at a variety of stores, like this Olive Leaf & Myrtle Wreath from Pottery Barn or this Gold Kraft + Glitter Leaves Wreath from West Elm, or get creative and make your own personalized holiday wreath.

Holiday Garland

Want to brighten up your apartment with some greenery during the holidays? A garland is an affordable and easy way to go. Wrap around the mantle on your fireplace or as a centerpiece on your dining table. Use this Olive Leaf & Myrtle Garland from Pottery Barn to match the wreath, or pick up garland at any craft, home décor or hardware store.

Winter Blankets & Faux Fur Throws

Bring warmth in the form of the holiday spirit with a faux fur throw or heavy seasonal blanket in a red, dark green or winter white color palette. This décor trick does double duty by not only decorating your apartment for the holidays, but also keeping you or your guests warm on chilly nights! Some of our favorites are the Luxury Faux Fur Blanket from Houzz in Polar Bear White, the Madison Park Faux Fur Throw from Bed, Bath & Beyond in Red and the Yasuko International Velvety Plush from Wayfair in Dark Green.

Decorate your apartment for the holidays with candles and poinsettias on kitchen island.

Centerpieces and Table Toppers

Easily create centerpieces for your dining or coffee table by bringing together different holiday items like pine cones, poinsettias, and candles to spice up your apartment décor for the holidays. Adding small holiday-themed knick-knacks to surfaces around your home easily adds to the festive atmosphere without breaking the bank.

And Twinkly Lights!

This one is a no brainer. No matter what holiday you’re celebrating twinkly lights are sure to give a warm holiday feeling. Neutral lights can give more of a modern elevated look since they can go with any other décor — while colorful lights can give more of a playful vibe. The choice is yours.
