Spark a flare with lighting solutions
First things first, if you aim to create a warm and inviting festive atmosphere in your home, you need to start by finding the ideal lighting solution. For example, LED string lights can help you enhance any key decorative features like the fir tree, garlands and wreaths on your walls and doors. Furthermore, if you have interesting decor outside, you can hang multi-coloured icicle bulbs for an ideal New Year’s Eve vibe. Make sure to get dimmer switches for your indoor fixtures so you can adjust the brightness in every room for a romantic mood. Keep in mind, Christmas lights are not just for the tree and walls since you can even place some underneath the tables where you serve refreshments to create an enchanting look. Finally, when you truly want the party to pop off, feel free to place laser lights inside your home for a cool light show.

Arrange the perfect colour scheme
Another important step towards planning an exciting New Year’s Eve party is to arrange the perfect colour-scheme. Before you start picking out colours, make sure to sparkle things up as much as possible with gold glitter garlands and embroidered accent wall accessories. As far as the palette is concerned, all you’ll need are green, red and pastel eggshell shades. Green features could include foliage and miniature fir trees for end tables, throw blankets for your furniture or even a chic comfy rug to keep everyone’s feet warm. Red elements that always evoke nostalgic feelings are berry branches, napkins for the dining table and stockings for the walls. Lastly, you can add a contemporary touch to the arrangement with eggshell curtains and table cloths to tie the whole look together.
Dress your tree up for the occasion
Since you’ll be celebrating the start of a new year, your Christmas ornaments simply won’t do the trick for the party. Therefore, it’s time to spice things up with some bald and dramatic alternatives. For example, instead of using your regular baubles you can hang exciting colourful balloons with heartfelt messages written on them wishing everyone a great new year. Another great idea would be to place multi-coloured noise makers and tiaras instead of your Santa Claus and reindeer pieces. In order to further signify the end of another great year you can hang clock ornaments. The cherry on the cake is going to be the tree topper, so feel free to go wild and opt for an eccentric piece like the Harry Potter sorting hat, Shrek’s head, or even King Kong.

Organise a New Year’s Eve theme party
Last but not least, you can utilize your creative skills to the fullest and organise a theme for the party. For instance, you can ask your guests to bring light-coloured clothing that they won’t mind staining with fluorescent body paint, get some glow sticks, hang a disco ball and you’ve got yourself a crazy disco rave party theme. However, if you are a fan of Star Wars, you can place a Death Star replica on the ceiling, a Rebel Alliance flag on the wall and serve drinks out of the franchise-themed cups. Alternatively, for those who are not big fans of snow and the cold weather, a Caribbean-themed party is a great solution. Simply bring in a couple of fake palms, place a bunch of barrels with rum written on them, add some treasure chests and you’re good to go.
As you can see, it doesn’t take much effort to organise a next level New Year’s Eve party. All it takes is experimenting with bald design ideas until you find the one you like the most. Good luck with your decor project!
