Celebrate the New Year at Home

Written by: Emily Rayner

After a couple of uncertain and challenging years, there’s nothing like the New Year to bring a renewed sense of hope and positivity. Even if you are celebrating with just the family at home, you can still add a few special touches for when the clock strikes midnight! Below are our favourite ways to decorate your space to celebrate the New Year in style.

Seasonal Stars

Star lights are a classic decoration that add some glitz and glam to any occasion - especially New Year’s Eve. They’re super versatile in their styling and can be hung in windows, walls, or placed on tables and your mantelpiece. Their traditional shape adds a perfect seasonal shine to your home and will fill your space with an uplifting glow when the countdown to 2022 begins.

Sparkling Statements

If there’s ever a time to add some sparkle to your décor then it has to be New Year’s Eve. Starburst lights are great for hanging outside your home as their stunning shine will instantly have you in the celebratory mood. You can also add sparkle to the inside of your home by dressing your side tables and creating a drinks station to bring the bar to you. Add LED candles to create a safe but cosy glow and decorate with some stars to welcome the New Year with a shimmering burst of light.

Setting the Scene

Decorations shouldn't just be kept to the inside of your home; set the scene outside for your fireworks display by adding lights to your trees and fences. Festoon lights are great for adding a classic glow to your garden and will keep you feeling cosy all year round. To really go all out this holiday, why not wrap your trees with Twinkly lights and connect them to the Twinkly music device to watch them sparkle in sync to your songs as you watch the fireworks and play Auld Lang Syne.

Magical Memories

The last 2 years have seen lots of plans cancelled and has been really difficult for many, but from this it has taught us to treasure the moments with our loved ones even more. As 2021 draws to a close, it's a good time to look back and reflect on the happy moments and memories we have made the past year and celebrate all the sucesses. A sentimental decoration for New Year's Eve is to create a memory wall with clippings of your favourite moments of the year. By attaching your photos to fairy lights, it's a bright and special way to remember and appreciate the best moments of the past 12 months and look forward to the magical memories yet to come.

However you choose to celebrate, we hope you have a wonderful New Year's Eve and wish you all the best for 2022!
