There is always that limbo time between Christmas and New Year’s where time seems to just stop and before you know it New Year’s Eve is a couple days away, you have people coming over for a party, and your house is looking like Christmas threw up instead of fresh and festive for The New Year. That being said you don’t have to put away all of your Christmas decorations or spend a ton of money to put up some New Year’s Eve décor that will make you and your guests feel ready to ring in The New Year!
You can give your home the right New Year’s feel by bringing out some sophisticated colors in your décor whether it be with your Christmas decorations that are already up or with some new but inexpensive decorations! Black, white, silver and gold are perfect celebratory colors for The New Year, but the trick is to pick on main color like gold and use it for at least half of your décor and then accent with another color like silver or black.
If you don’t feel like decorating your whole house your table is the perfect place to add some New Year’s cheer because let’s be honest parties tend to center around the food and drinks. By adding some silver and gold candle holders, plates, chargers, flatware etc. to accent your table it can be a cheap but easy way to bring a sophisticated New Year’s look to your party without breaking the bank and with minimal effort!
You can’t have a New Year’s party without party favors, and bonus they can be used for décor. Set sparklers aside in tall hurricane glasses on your mantle, or arrange a table or bar cart with silver, black and gold hats, crowns, poppers, horns, confetti and other festive favors that will instantly add the New Year’s feel to your party!
No New Year’s party is complete without champagne so why not use it as a decoration as well! Hit up the thrift stores to find some unique champagne flutes to place around your table or bar cart. If you can’t find a matching set that’s ok! Having different styles adds a unique flare to your décor and people won’t have to worry about which glass is theirs.
