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.
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!
