How to decorate your home for the New Year 2017
Everyone, without exception, loves the New Year, children, sticking out their tongues from zeal, write letters to Santa Claus and look forward to a miracle, and adults - for a while, become assistants to the New Year's wizard and designers-decorators of their own home. Decorating an apartment or a country house is a separate pleasure to which you should devote some time for detailed preparation, planning and purchasing the necessary materials, and then together with the children make Christmas tree decorations or garlands and decorate the hearth without haste and running around (if only racing to the box with decorations).
Time spent working together is by definition invaluable, it can be the beginning of a family tradition or a continuation of a long-standing ritual.
Home decoration before the year of the Red Rooster
As a rule, each family already has clear ideas or well-established canons for decorating a home for celebrating the New Year - someone decorates all rooms with tinsel and garlands, and some stop at a wreath on the front door and candle compositions on the windowsill. As in any business, there is an explanation for everything - the presence or absence of children and their age, whether there are animals in the house and their sizes, taste preferences and financial capabilities. But - the holiday is where they are expected and prepared for it, it does not matter at all, using designer jewelry or hand-made crafts.
To meet the year of the Red Fire Rooster, you need to give preference to all colors and shades of flame - red, orange, purple, yellow, burgundy, purple, and, of course, gold. In such colors, which are ideally combined with the lush greenery of the trees, it is worth withstanding all the decoration elements. But you need not to overdo it, dwell on several colors, not mix the whole fiery extravaganza. The Rooster will also be pleased with all the attributes of the "rustic" style with a certain amount of brutality - linen tablecloths, large baskets, wooden salad bowls, large cutlery and ceramic dishes. Handicrafts made from natural materials are welcome, especially the Rooster will be pleased with pictures made of cereals or seeds, but a New Year's wreath with small bells, made of wine corks, will come in handy.
When decorating a house, it should be remembered that the Rooster is a creative dandy, but generally conservative, therefore, the sequins and an abundance of tinsel should be left for another case, but we hang the garlands that give a cozy, warm light not only on the tree, but also on the windows and walls.
We decorate the Christmas tree
The Christmas tree does not have to be alive, sometimes it is an unaffordable luxury when babies crawl in the house or cheerful pets are running around. In this case, decorating the tree with small soft toys would be an ideal option - even if the tree is attacked and does not survive, it can be quickly raised and there will be no particular damage to beauty.
If there is an opportunity to purchase a forest beauty, you should not hang it with a million assorted toys and hang it with rain from top to bottom, it is better to have fewer toys, but with meaning and theme. For example, the happy owners of parental New Year's decorations will surely find several birds, and not necessarily roosters and chickens, although this will be ideal. Or toys can be different in shape, but the same in color (two colors are more than enough to decorate a Christmas tree).
Let the branches be visible, the closeness to nature will attract the favor of the symbol of the year.
In order to create a New Year's mood, sometimes a few little things are enough - to make an impromptu calendar so that the kids pick a leaf every morning and count how many days are left before the holiday, hang a traditional New Year's wreath on the door and put citrus fruits in a dish in the kitchen and pour cinnamon sticks and anise stars. We decorate each room and common corridor according to our taste and traditions, because many have carefully preserved ones - garlands from old postcards, bows and stars that look great on the walls, unusual candlesticks (again, wine corks will come to the rescue for an original design). Tablecloth, napkins and cushions with New Year's drawings, unusual Christmas "carousels" that begin to move from the warmth of lighted candles, walnut compositions,hazelnuts and Christmas tree branches - all this creates an unforgettable holiday atmosphere.
Country house decoration
Snow, stars in the night sky, and if you're lucky - a living Christmas tree on the site - this is already a holiday. The main thing is not to frighten and not overdo it, not to destroy the charm of nature. Outdoor glowing wires are an ideal solution for decorating your home and fruit trees, when this splendor shines in the evening, the feeling of celebration will intensify. If there is an open veranda or a barbecue area covered with snow, put a few figurines - birds or angels on the table or chairs, they will not freeze, but will delight you and your guests. Inside the house there is full scope for imagination, to help - wooden Christmas tree decorations, cones and fir branches, balls and garlands, which decorate not only walls, window openings, but also a staircase with railings. If there is a fireplace, we decorate the mantelpiece with bright socks in which you can put gifts. We choose windows for the Rooster,going to the East - after all, the Rooster announces the approach of a new day with his loud voice - and on the windowsill we lay out treats consisting of a mixture of nuts, oatmeal and ginger cookies, kozinak from seeds and nuts.
The main rule when decorating your home is that you and your loved ones feel comfortable and cozy, no one is afraid to break or move something. New Year is a wonderful holiday that must be met in a good mood.
