It’s hard to believe it, but the holiday season is almost upon us! This year may look a little different, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t still celebrate in style and make lasting memories virtually from the comfort and safety of your apartment!

Decorate Your Apartment

No matter what holiday you’re celebrating – start with decorating your apartment. Put on some music and make a day of decorating your Norwalk home. Pull out your festive holiday décor, cocktail napkins, dishtowels, candles, etc. Get creative with flowers and plants and make holiday centerpieces and floral arrangements you can display in your apartment!

Learn How to Cook “The” Dish

What is the one dish you look forward to around the holidays? Your Uncle’s famous stuffing? Your Grandma’s homemade cookies? Whatever it is, get the recipe and get in your kitchen and make it! Even better, you can set up a virtual cooking lesson with your relative where they can teach your entire family how to make the dish step-by-step so you’ll know how to cook it for years to come!

Get Dressed to The Nines

It may seem like eons ago that you got dressed up but take the holidays as a time to dust off those high-heels and suits you have stashed away in your apartment and get festive! We know it may feel like a reach to change out of the leisurewear you have been donning since March, but the holidays will feel more special if you go all out and get dressed up!

Keep Your Traditions Alive

Do you always eat with your entire family? Do you go around the table and say what you are thankful for or make toasts to one another? Get creative and keep your traditions alive from your apartment virtually! Plan your meal agenda, so you don’t feel like you’re just eating in front of your laptop camera. Make it interactive and make it fun!

Play Games and Have Fun!

Use video conferencing tools and create virtual holiday trivia, charades, or gift exchanges. Whatever you and your friends and family used to do, take it virtually! Share your screen or press play simultaneously and watch your favorite movies together or listen to your favorite songs.

There’s no way around it, the holiday season will be different this year – but it’s in your hands to make the best of it!
