Although it may seem like a lot of work to decorate for another holiday immediately after Christmas, New Year’s Eve is right around the corner. Luckily, decorating for New Year’s Eve is actually a lot easier than it sounds. You can save time and money by reusing some of your Christmas decorations and mixing it with New Year’s Eve decorations to create a memorable party for your guests.
Update Your Greenery: If you have a Christmas wreath, swag or garland, you can re-purpose it for your New Year’s Eve celebration! Add some blue, silver or gold tinsel, lights, ornaments, and ribbon to instantly transform them and have them ready for your party! If your Christmas tree is still up, you can do the same for this as well!
Brighten Up The Night With Lights: In addition to adding lights to your wreaths and garland, any clear Christmas lights you have can easily be hung around the house. You can hang lights from the ceiling and combine them with some of these ceiling decorations to create a look of a star filled sky. Battery operated lights are great to decorate with because they can be placed anywhere. You can string some of these lights around your snack bowls or maybe line your windows and tables with them.
Use Your Ornaments: You can use ball ornaments to decorate around your home. Silver, gold and blue ornaments are perfect to use for New Year’s decor. Hang some of these ornaments on a chandelier to add some life to a room, or dangle a few from banisters or windows to fill up some empty space. Another great decorating idea is to take miniature silver & gold ball shaped ornaments, and place them inside empty champagne glasses to mimic the rising bubbles of champagne.
Add The Finishing Touches: Once you’ve gotten the main decorating out of the way, all that you have left is add some of our other decorations to complete the look. Don’t forget about party favors, too!
