Meta-Description: Welcome 2021 by jazzing up your home on New Year’s Eve. These five decoration ideas might help you attract good fortune and a fresh start.
Just a few more days and 2020 will be over. With 2021 just around the corner, sanitation and aesthetics are now part of everyone’s agenda for decorating their homes for the holidays. And despite COVID-19 changing the way people decorate and celebrate, there are up and coming trends that may help welcome good fortune and positive vibes this 2021.
Because 2021 will be an opportunity for you to start new goals and habits, consider welcoming the new year with these New Year’s Eve decoration ideas.
Create a DIY Drop Ball
The New Year countdown drop ball is one of the most awaited events on New Year’s Eve. Many find it thrilling to watch the massive reflective ball slowly drop down as the last day of the year comes to an end. But because COVID-19 restrictions may not allow you and your loved ones to attend such events, create your own New Year drop ball for your New Year’s Eve celebration.
Cover a plastic or styrofoam ball with glitter to mimic the shimmering effect of the famous Drop Ball. Use a permanent marker to mark each hour of your party all the way to midnight. “Drop” your ball each hour until you count the last five seconds to 2021 with friends and family.
According to Feng Shui, 2021 is the Year of the Metal Ox. Besides rearranging your furniture and decorating to attract good luck and fortune, incorporating metallic pieces also suits the overall Feng Shui aspect. For example, you can start with silver or gold-like cutlery and dinnerware, candle holders, metal-framed mirrors, or sculptures made of iron or steel to adorn key places in your home.
Experts also say to use gray and golden tones in your furniture, wall, and fixtures. Suppose your interiors are similar to Tropicana Garden City’s units, where there are golden yellow tones. In that case, it might be more convenient for you to select and collect metallic pieces that will suit your home and plans for prosperity and good vibes.
Place Marbled Paper Napkins
Paper napkins are essential for any party. They help you and your guests wipe food debris and spillage. But that doesn’t mean they should be plain and boring. Nowadays, you can find decorative paper napkins that add attractive accents to your dining set up. Use marbled paper napkins with gold features resembling kintsugi (the Japanese art of mending broken pottery with lacquer mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum) on your dining table. Your beautiful paper napkins will attract your guests’ eyes and maybe prevent them from spilling to avoid ruining the beautiful paper towel.
Use Metal Leaf Garlands
Stick to the metal motif of 2021 by using metal leaf garlands to decorate your walls and window or door frames. Choose from various designs and colors ranging from silver, gold, rose gold, and platinum. Like Christmas garlands, they instantly and effortlessly spruce up your home for your New Year’s celebration.
Decorate with Golden Balloons
Balloons are simple decoration pieces you can couple with your metal garlands and kintsugi-designed paper napkins. Their shimmering surfaces provide a soft, muted light into your home. Likewise, their spherical shape also resembles round fruits such as oranges, grapes, and watermelons. Overall, golden balloons are playful decor that embodies the luck and fortune the Metal Ox may bring you this 2021.
With 2021 approaching, think about which themes will suit your New Year’s Eve plans. These five decoration ideas may help you decide how you will welcome the new year through your home decor, parties, and resolutions.
