The holiday season is a time of joy for most people. Everyone is in a good mood and in a spirit of giving. You get to see friends and family you haven’t seen, and there are a lot of holiday parties, celebrating the old year and the new year to come. For many, this is their favorite time of year.

A balcony is the perfect place to express your Christmas cheer this holiday season. You can wrap lights all around the railings, from traditional outdoor lights to icicle lights. You can hang a decorative basket from the railings, as well as bows and candy canes. You can put a tree outside on your balcony as well with lights, or a blow up snowman or other festive scene. A balcony is an extension of your indoor space so the sky is the limit here. In Littleton, many people ride bikes and store them on their balconies. Since you probably aren’t riding them all that much during this time of year, you can decorate your bike with lights as well for a spectacular sight from afar. It will really add a unique touch to your Christmas decorations.


One of the beautiful parts of Christmas lights is seeing them in the dark. It’s fun to get up in the morning while it’s still dark out and see your apartment lit up. Many people love to hang Christmas lights from their apartment ceilings. If you choose white lights, Summit Riverside Apartments in Littleton notes that they serve as stars to light the night. If you don’t like to sleep in the dark, then a strand of Christmas lights on your bedroom ceiling makes the perfect nightlight.

Photo Card Displays

Do you ever wonder what to do with all those Christmas cards you get? Now you can incorporate Christmas lights into your cards by creating a Christmas card wall display. This literally takes minutes to create and also serves as a creative, fun, and memorable wall decoration. Simply hang a strand of Christmas lights on the wall, and use clips or clothespins to hang your Christmas cards from the light strand. You can add to this throughout the holiday season, making it a living wall decoration. Plus, it’s a great conversational piece for your Christmas party.


Many of us love wreaths around the Christmas season. One creative way to make your wreath absolutely gorgeous is to decorate it with Christmas lights. Summit Riverside Apartments in Littleton notes that it’s like having a mini-Christmas tree hanging on your wall or door. If you add in pine cones or other aromatic features to your wreath, a lighted wreath can become one of your favorite holiday traditions year after year.


You go in and out of your door probably multiple times a day. A great way to put a smile on your face, even during the sour moments of your day, is with Christmas lights around your door. They will remind you of the season and of your upcoming events and Christmas day. Plus, it helps late at night when you’re struggling to find your key to get into your apartment.


One of Summit Riverside Apartments’ favorite places to decorate is in the windows. You can hang strands of Christmas lights and then put ornaments on them, such as bulbs. You can create patterns in your windows with your lights, such as stars. You can make cut-out snowflakes, hang them in your windows, and then put Christmas lights around them. The possibilities are endless for decorating your windows during the holiday season.
