One of my favorite ways to add color to New Year’s decorations is to use ribbon to create accents throughout your entire party space. Using debi lilly design™ ribbon in tan (or your color of choice), you can create a chic table runner or make your own a corseted vase by taking the following steps -

It’s a great idea to repurpose certain elements of your Christmas décor for New Year’s. You can use boxes of round glass ornaments in varied colors and fill vases with sparkly, colorful holiday ornaments in varied sizes and shapes. I like to use silver and gold for a chic New Year’s feel. I also like to assemble debi lilly design™ candles of various sizes on a platter from your pantry, adorned with colorful holiday ornaments scattered around the base.

Creating an intimate atmosphere is all about the lighting. debi lilly design™ white candles are the easiest way to add a bit of romance your New Year’s Eve party. Place them around your party space and for an extra element of intimacy, sprinkle white rose petals around the bases of the candles and along your table.

Trying to do too much! New Year’s Eve is about letting loose and celebrating the year ahead, so have fun with your holiday decor. I like to choose one decorative focal point for my party, like a festive holiday bar complete with signature drinks and a few simple design elements like candles and ribbon.
