Make your Christmas decoration for a balcony
In addition to the bright decorations, the balcony can accommodate a multitude of decorative objects with bright colors (to be visible).
- Hang your Christmas balls on your balcony;
- Post your Christmas topics on a small garden table;
- Decorate your outdoor chairs with fir garlands or colored knots...
