No room for a full size Christmas tree? Decorate your fireplace instead. Give your mantle a major do over with oversized garland and lights. While you’re at it, incorporate some candlesticks and baubles. You can even add layers of candles inside your fireplace (as long as you don’t use it) to give a very romantic feel to your home!
