Bling In The New Year
The holidays are coming to an end, so why not go out with a bang! Here are some quick ideas to refresh your décor for a New Years Bash.
Add some sparkle
Just by adding some rhinestones or glitter ribbon to your existing black picture frames amps up the glam and sets the tone for New Years. Even sprinkling a bit of that tinsel from your Christmas tree on countertops and tables makes a statement and creates a festive feel.
Go for gold
We are big fans of using what is already in your home and just re-styling to create a new look. Simply walk room to room in your home and collect anything gold. Pairing gold picture frames, candles, vases, flowers or small figurines can make a bold impact and costs nothing.
Classic party flair
It sounds simple, but the traditional touches always put people in the mood for a party. Hit your local dollar store or party store and grab metallic balloons. When it comes to balloons more is more – so grab a dozen and strategically place them around your home to give it that festive feel. Big impact and low cost, balloons are a must.
Light the candles
Candles are meant to be lit. And if you don’t want to light the $25 Yankee candle you just got from Aunt Jane for Christmas – hit Hobby Lobby or Michaels and grab a 12 pack of their votives. For about $5 you can set the tone with candle light.
There’s no better way to change the atmosphere in your home than to put on some music. Even at the swankiest parties, people want to let their hair down on New Year’s. We suggest making up a playlist that marries the old with the new. Here are our top 10 songs we suggest you add to your playlist:
- Auld Lang Syne
- Let’s Stay Together – Al Green
- Celebration – Kool and the Gang
- Shake It Off – Taylor Swift
- It’s the End of the World as we Know It – R.E.M.
- Fight for your Right to Party – The Beastie Boys
- 1999 – Prince
- Come on Eileen – Dexys Midnight Runners
- Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough – Michael Jackson
- I’ve got a Feeling – Black Eyed Peas
