To make the main holiday of the year truly memorable, you don't have to go on a trip or book a table at an expensive restaurant. New Year's Eve can become special at home if you show your imagination and think in advance how to create a festive mood. Especially for you, we have prepared 8 inspiring ideas for New Year's decor.
1. Setting the tone for the holiday
First of all, choose a base color for your holiday decoration. The house for the New Year can be decorated in colors characteristic of the winter season - pastel, blue, red, brown or green. When choosing the right color, keep in mind that it should be in harmony with the interior of the house. Having decided on the base color of the decoration, add additional accents: for example, decorate the tablecloth and Christmas tree decorations with silver or gold paint.
2. We decorate the tree correctly
The main element in the New Year's decor is, of course, the Christmas tree. But this does not mean at all that you need to hang all the toys in the house on it. Choose only those that match the base color of the design and are in harmony with the interior. The tree should not be overloaded with decor. If you don't have the opportunity to purchase new, more suitable toys, buy tinsel - it costs less, but it looks stylish.
3. Turning out the lights and lighting candles
You will be surprised how much the atmosphere in your home will change if you replace the lamps and fixtures with ordinary candles. With glue and sewing materials (beads, ribbons, stripes of brightly colored fabrics, and unnecessary buttons), you can easily give them a festive look. Create whole candle compositions all over your home by grouping them together in Christmas wreaths. To keep the candles burning longer and not going out until morning, put them in a bag and put them in the freezer the day before the holiday.
4. We hang garlands
Garlands hung around the house will also create a New Year's mood. Hang them literally everywhere - on the railing of the stairs, along the dining table, on the walls, windows and, of course, on the tree. Thanks to this, the house will immediately be transformed and shine with new colors.
5. We decorate the house with natural materials
Let the winter nature into your house - cones and spruce branches can become an original decoration. Decorate them with silver paint or tie them with ribbons, and you can safely decorate with them a Christmas tree, a festive table, as well as doors and windows of the house.
6. Serving the table
Like the Christmas tree, the New Year's table should also not be overloaded with various accessories. Lay a tablecloth (it is desirable that it coincides with the base color of the decoration), arrange beautiful dishes. The picture will be complemented by candles, New Year's wreaths, ornaments from cones and spruce branches.
7. We decorate the windows
Draw frosty patterns on the windows. To do this, mix the toothpaste with water, dip a sponge in the resulting mixture and blot the windows with it. Now let your imagination run wild and draw snowflakes and frosty curls on the glass.
8. We select textiles
Soft decorative pillows with themed prints and inscriptions are perhaps the easiest and most effective way to create a festive mood at home. Decorate sofas and armchairs with them - and your home space, as if by magic, will begin to fill with the long-awaited atmosphere of celebration and magic.
