We have gathered 8 ideas with which you will be able to add more seats to the table and the living room, have a Christmas tree even if you think it does not fit, or fill your house with magic with ornaments that do not subtract a cm. This year yes (almost) everything is possible.
1. A CREATIVE TREE
If not even the smallest option fits you, why not make your own tree to hang? It will not take away space at home and the children will love it because they can also help you make it. Here 5 wooden rods of different sizes have been used as branches and they have been joined with a double-sided decorative ribbon that has been crowned with a ring to hang it. All that remains is to decorate it!
2. THE CHILDREN’S TABLE
Can’t you all fit at the table? If there are several small children, an option that they will also love is to reserve a separate table just for them, thus freeing the main one. The office table or a folding camping table will serve you. Choose disposable plates, there are very beautiful ones, to be able to match those of the elders’ table and that there is no lack of a center with a luminous garland, they will surely love them!
3. A DETACHABLE CENTERPIECE
The plates, the glasses, and the glasses, the cutlery, the food… And the centerpiece! It is very decorative and cannot be missing from a party table, but it takes up a lot of space. If you don’t want to give it up, but you don’t want to be eating corseted either, organize a centerpiece that you can easily remove from the table once you are all seated, like this one, where different items have been gathered on a tray. Just take the tray and goodbye center.
4. ADD MORE SEATS
A bench works wonders because in a space that can fit four chairs, up to six people can sit on a bench comfortably. Folding chairs are another very practical option since they take up less space than those in regular use. And if you have chairs with armrests, which tend to be more voluminous, reserve them for the head of the table or the ends so you will free up space and can include some more chairs.
5. SMALL DETAILS COUNT
If you do not fit a center, look for alternatives to decorate the table for a party. How to dress the chairs with an ornament, as has been done here. You can also make personalized napkin rings for each diner or leave a small detail on the plate as a gift.
6. GIFTS? TO THE BASKET!
Whenever you can, group the gifts in a basket, they will occupy much less than scattered on the ground under the tree. Also, they will be decorative on their own.
7. DECORATE THE WINDOWS
Turn the walls and windows into another surface to decorate, with the advantage that they will not eat an inch of the house. A luminous garland on the living room windows felt snowflakes on the windows, wire ornaments like these… It is possible to dress your home for Christmas, no matter how small, with details that don’t take up space.
8. THE CHRISTMAS WREATH
Make the entrance of your house unique, especially if it is natural like this… and without subtracting a useful cm! This one, from Bouquet, has been made with small pinecones, cypress, and eucalyptus branches, and ribbon.
