“No Christmas Trees Allowed?”
Most Condo Boards have begun posting notices around their lobby and in mail rooms “Real Christmas Trees are Not Permitted” “Wreaths and Other Decorations or Door Knockers Are Not to Be Hung on Your Unit Door”.
Many of these notices have logical reasons behind them, fire hazards for example, and imagine hundreds of unit owners trying to proudly fit their 7ft Douglas Fir into the elevators. Talk about a cramped elevator ride – and a messy lobby!
However these bulletins during the Holiday Season can sound like they were written by the Grinch himself.
So how can we get our Holiday Spirit Back into our Condominiums?
Check Out Our 3 Favourite Ways to Add Some Festive Decorations To Your Condo!
- For Outdoorsy Types, swap out some shelves with tree branches. You’ll get that authentic Christmas tree feel without the pine-needle mess!

One string of lights should do the trick – Have some fun and dump the regular shaped bulbs for star shaped lights!
2. If it’s pretty ornaments that get you into the holiday spirit, a mesh screen is a great place setter for your favourite ones! This gorgeous DIY vintage window frame can display as many or as little ornaments as you like.
Bonus: Not feeling the spot you set up? Pick up the whole frame (carefully) and move it around to any room you like!
