Christmas is over, but if you are like me, there is no hurry to take your trees down. It’s always a lot more fun putting up Christmas decorations than it is taking them down. Avoid that problem just a little bit longer and prolong the life of your tree by using it to celebrate another holiday – New Year’s!
I’m not saying decorate your tree over from start to finish; I’m saying slightly change one of your existing trees. My Toasted Champagne Treetopia Tree seemed like the obvious choice for New Year’s Eve. All I had to do was switch out a few ornaments, add some party favors and get my color wheel spinning. You read me right, Treetopia has color wheels and they are awesome.
First things first, remove all traces of Christmas on the tree. I chose a tree that was not overly Christmasy to start to make this job easy. In place of the Christmas decorations, I added cheap New Year’s Eve Party Favors. The idea is that on NYE, guests can take their party favors right off the tree. My tree topper is off-limits, especially my Chromatic Icefall Ornament Set. Check the party store for fun decorations like…
- Plastic Champagne flutes
- Party hats
- Colorful tiaras
- Glow Sticks
- Noise Makers
- Party Horns
- Festive Glasses
All that is left to do is turn on the color wheel and count down to midnight!by
