Of course Christmas is not tiny — it’s as big as you want to make it! But finding room for Christmas decorations can be tricky when you have so little space.
Tomorrow I’ll let you know what we’re doing here at the laneway house, but meanwhile here are some clever ideas on how to finesse setting up that massive tree.
You can go all Charlie Brown and get a simple twig or two to represent the tree.
Put it in a container on your table top, or attach it to the wall
Or why bother with the tree at all? Attach the ornaments directly to a nice blank space of wall.

So squeeze a little Christmas into your small space.
