Space is less on the floor but your vertical space may still have enough unoccupied leeway for festive décor. Look for spaces that you usually do not use like the emptiness over the door or the windows. Or even your cabinets on the walls can be used meaningfully to showcase the X-mas spirit. To keep the walking space on the floor clutter-free, use these vertical spaces to hang the traditional Christmas wreaths. Hang mini wreaths from the kitchen cabinets, the bookcase handles, around the light fixtures, or any space in the perimeter of the room. Remember to wrap the Christmas lights for the ultimate mood lighting

Festivals are a time for merry-making and fun. Make it all even warmer with petite candles everywhere. In fact, your x-mas decoration is incomplete without the traditional holiday scents like cinnamon, pine, or orange. You can mull red wine on the stove with a hint of spice. Cloves, rosemary, and thymes scented candles bring the holiday essence to your small space amazingly. To deviate from traditions, you can choose scented soy candles with contrasting fragrances. To give it a luxurious touch, shop for glass lanterns and let the illumination fill the hearts of your family and friends with new hopes and positivity.
6. Joyous Centerpiece Ideas

Use an eclectic collection of small and niche décor items on a tray as an attractive centrepiece arrangement. Use seasonal accents with polished finesse. Hand-painted vases, snowhite blocks, white marble trinket trays, rustic table accents, boho photo frames, quartz stones, and more. Use handpicked iconic items, shopped from exclusive home décor stores for added aesthetics. Handmade items from rural artisans can also act as the perfect bedecking accompaniments. Examples include a beautifully crafted gourd-shaped glass pumpkin typical of fall adorned with LED lights or candles. Or, gift-wrapped cones made from poster boards. White cake plates, top hand-painted candle stands, and more.
7. Use Wooden bowls for Tabletop Décor

Convert wooden bowls and plates to place seasonal décor items on the table. It can take off a lot of the clutter that typically gets strewn on the floor. You can also opt for a white marble bowl to reinforce the snowy white theme. Take the ornamented holiday look notches higher with one or two elite dessert stands to tastefully complete the tabletop décor.
8. Blankets, Pillows & Rugs

The final touches of décor in your visually appealing space should be about adding the typical holiday colours – red, white, green, gold, and silver. The best way is to use pops of colours on the cushions, pillows, and blankets. White soft rugs on the floor are ideal for welcoming the holiday cheer. Use a tablecloth in checks of red and white, the traditional X-mas colours.
9. Eaves at the Entry
