How to Setup your Apartment Balcony for the Holidays

There are many holiday decorations that you could hang up on your apartment balcony.

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone decorating enthusiasts all over gather their wreaths and lights to get to decorating their front lawn with decorations for the holidays. But what about those who do not have a front yard to cover up in seasonal cheer? Well, more than likely, you have some type of outdoor space that you’re able to decorate, and no matter how small it is, you could still make it look incredibly festive. Here at Prescott Square Apartments, we encourage all of our residents to have fun with their decorations. If you need some décor inspiration and advice, read below for a few ideas for decorating your apartment balcony for the holidays!

First, Survey Your Entire Balcony

Before you start any decorating, determine precisely how much space it is you have. How much wall space? What is the current height and width of your balcony railing?

Decorate Your Apartment Balcony with Holiday Lights

White or multi-colored lights are a must-have for any festive outdoor displays. However, you might want to consider different, smaller lights for the balcony. Wide-angle conical lights offer a visual punch in a tinier package. Depending on what it is you are hanging and on which surface, there are a few clips available to help hold up your balcony lights. Once you know which lights you have, research the best type of tool to use to hang them with.

Hang Up Plenty of Wreaths

Decorate your apartment balcony with plenty of wreaths, and you’ll instantly have an eye-catching and festive display of Christmas spirit. Wreaths, or a collection of wreaths, are lovely for this time of year and even better for hanging on your balcony railing. You could also pick a garland or velvet red bows to wrap around the railing.

Think with Some Creativity

To take advantage of your smaller space, you might have to get creative. Consider some unique decorations like some animated snowfall tubes or icicle lights, a garland frame in your doorway, or patio string lights. If you’ve got kids, you can spend some time with them making some paper snowflakes and then hang them from the balcony railing or place them onto your door. Some people also wrap the outside of their door with wrapping paper and bows. The sky is the limit when it comes down to decorating your apartment for the holidays, especially your balcony!
