Simple seasonal touches for your apartment

The holidays have arrived and it is time to turn your St. Catharines Apartment into a festive getaway. A few simple seasonal touches can go a long way in adding colour and cheer to your home. Get started with a few ideas from the Panoramic Properties blog team.

 

Add a touch of holiday green

 

A bit of greenery can truly spruce up your St. Catharines Apartment this holiday season. Creations By Helen (161 Church Street) sells a variety of greenery including wreaths, centrepieces and garlands. You can also buy a beautiful potted poinsettia or lily tree to set on your dining or coffee table. This local store is open from 9:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and until 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. To get here, drive ten minutes from Linwell Road Apartments (473 Linwell Road).

 

Make your own wreath

 

Crafters can have fun making their own one-of-a-kind wreath to utilize door space and add a touch of colour. A do-it-yourself wreath can be made using any variety of items. One fun winter-themed idea is to use jingle bells. To find any craft supplies you need, shop at Niagara Central Hobbies (401 St Paul Street), a ten-minute drive from Westgate Village Apartments (30 Bradmon Drive).

 

Count down the days and decorate

 

An advent calendar can serve as both a way to count down the days until Christmas and as a decoration in your St. Catharines Apartment. This easy advent calendar only requires envelopes, a way to number the envelopes and a wall-safe adhesive.

 

Do a little shopping

 

There are many festive markets happening this month. These markets are often a great place to find a simple but elegant decoration. Start your shopping at St. Catharines Farmers’ Market (Market Square, 91 King Street). In December, this market is open from 6:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Thursdays and Saturdays. To get here, drive only four minutes from Westchester Apartments (139-143 Westchester Street). Take a short drive to Niagara-on-the-Lake to experience Canada’s oldest year-round Christmas store, Just Christmas (34 Queen Street). To look for seasonal touches here, drive about fifteen minutes from Queenston Apartments (349 Queenston).
