Holiday Decorating at The Sagamore

There are many ways to make your Sagamore apartment a winter wonderland this holiday season, even if the temperatures in Manhattan are more May than December. We found some great tips online on apartment decorating for our residents!

Receiving tons of beautiful Christmas cards but not sure what to do with them? Display your holiday cards on the wall along with pops of greenery, such as sprigs of pine. Line them up on window sills or shelving you may have around the apartment. You can also have fun making your own mini “gingerbread house” with graham crackers or adorable edible snow globes! Baking a normal gingerbread house can be hours of tedious work, but this fun easy tutorial will only take about an hour and leave you with the same adorable look.

Does your regular apartment furniture kill the festive vibe a little? Try changing up your dining room chairs with a holiday makeover as well. Looking for a place to hang the stockings with care but missing the mantel? No worries! We found this great website with some fun suggestions for apartment stocking hanging.

No holiday decor is complete without a Christmas tree! Head over to Broadway at 102nd and pick up a tree from Upper West Side Christmas tree salesman Francois. He has some great options ranging from $25-$300! Or you can leave the city and cut your own to bring home. Make a fun day of it as some farms offer activities such as carriage rides, Santa photos, and holiday shopping.
