But let’s not exaggerate. If desired, everyone will be able to cope with this work, because preparing the house for this wonderful holiday will be a pleasant pastime for the whole family. Most of all, this is what children like to do, the main thing is to channel their restless energy into the right direction. When a fairy tale settles in a house, it will be easy to believe in a miracle even to absolute pessimists.
If by coincidence of years you all with less enthusiasm sit down at the New Year’s table, then you really need to refresh the acuteness of festive sensations. Let’s see in what setting you can meet the new year.
If you live in a city apartment, the New Year’s mood should settle not only in the room where it is planned to cover the festive table. That is, in the extravaganza should be involved all the premises.
We decorate the living room
This room we always prepare for the holiday with special trepidation, because it is planned to receive friends and relatives. Since not every apartment has a dining room, it is the living room that becomes the most suitable place for setting up a Christmas tree and holding a night celebration. So, thinking, we came to the fact that the main components of the design of the living room will be a table and a decorated Christmas tree. On the table can appear original candles, thematic napkins, dishes painted in the New Year’s spirit. In the interior, garlands, wreaths, bouquets and other compositions made of natural materials are not superfluous.to content↑
We decorate the bedroom
The components of the New Year decor of the bedroom can be:
- Beautiful linen with New Year’s symbols.
- Bedspread with the same pattern.
- Pillows in bright colors with gilding.
The unusual decoration of the central element of the sleeping decor – beds, can completely transform the familiar room into the bedchamber of the Snow Queen or Snow Maiden. Replacement of textiles is the easiest way to create a New Year’s atmosphere not only in the home, but also in private life.
One should not resort to such global decisions and simply hang a tinsel in the room or attach a garland sparkling with magnificent mysterious lights to the head of the bed. It will look good snowflakes on the curtains, candles on the chest of drawers, balls in the window opening area.to content↑
We decorate the kitchen
As the kitchen is a room, usually modest in area, it is not possible to place large New Year’s compositions in it, however, for small decorative details, the place will always be found. You can bring a special mood with the help of utensils of a specific painting, garlands, put on the perimeter of hanging lockers and lovely New Year knick-knacks, hung on the rails and windows.to content↑
We decorate the nursery
The interior of the nursery is originally cheerful and elegant, so here you will only need to slightly adjust the picture with specific elements and the New Year decor is ready. A good idea will be textiles with a portrait of Santa Claus, a picture of a sack with gifts or a faded Christmas tree. Window sills should be rationally decorated with New Year’s compositions, and walls – with garlands. You can hang a mobile with a snowflake over the crib or attach these beautiful creatures to the ceiling.
“No matter how high-quality was the glowing element of the New Year decor in the form of a garland or other accessory, you did not leave the decoration included in your absence”
For many, staying in a magical New Year’s Eve in an apartment is a complete nonsense and they are sent to meet her outside the city. There, in the open air, you can decorate a Christmas tree, and fire a shish kebab, and organize fireworks, and if you try, you can turn the entire yard into a fairy-tale corner. Today in the assortment of shops there is enough variety of street garlands that will make you paint your fence, the facade of the house or trees in the garden. And do not spare the money spent, because you buy not just elements of the New Year decor – you get the mood ! And this purchase will serve you for more than one year and each time it will be a real source of joy.
An essential attribute of the New Year’s Eve – candles – can be installed on the curbs of alleys, a street table or the banisters of the porch, but put them so that no misfortune occurs, remember that this is a small but still open fire capable of causing many problems.
Also, it’s also necessary to approach the launch of fireworks. Before you give rockets a start, make sure that all guests are at a safe distance, and move away. Never violate, even in jest, the following rule: do not direct people to the side, no crackers, no bombs, or seemingly quite harmless Bengal lights.
As much as the quality of the glowing element of the New Year decor in the form of a garland or other accessory is not of high quality, do not leave the ornament included in your absence. There may be a short circuit, and everyone knows about its consequences.
When choosing an artificial Christmas tree, do not pursue cheapness. Their branches ignite in the blink of an eye.
Very often elements of the New Year’s environment carry a danger for pets. For example, cats will not fail to play with bright balls or ringing bells, so Christmas toys and other accessories of this kind will be placed more properly.
However, they do not need to drop anything and the tree as a whole, so try to take all possible measures to prevent such excesses. Do not leave low to hang tinsel, in which the animal may become entangled.
Any holiday, and the New Year in particular, should carry only positive emotions to every house.
