This is a challenge for many people. The first question is how you decorate your small apartment or condo for the Holiday season. The key is less is more. Stick to one color palette that you will reuse everywhere. Add a few touches across your home starting with the entry hallway. Reinvent the decor of a console table. Look at where you can hang or display tree ornaments using elements from your existing decor.
When it comes to planning your holiday party, opt for a cocktail party where you serve tapas and canapes. Keep the number of appetizers within the limits that your space can accommodate. Spread the food between the kitchen breakfast bar and living room tables. Test before your party how many serving plates you can put on your flat surfaces. You can still serve a mix of cold and hot hors d’oeuvre. One way to minimize the space is to put certain food in a tall bowl and place stacked takeout boxes for a self-serve delivery.
