All that work we put in decorating for Christmas and then the New Year pops up right behind it!
If you're the type that just HAS to decorate specifically for each and every holiday (ahem...us), here's a few examples of ways to do just that for the New Year!
The cool thing is, that in most cases, you can just switch out a few key items from the Christmas decor, leave the rest, and VOILA, you have a beautiful display.
Of course, as with everything we do, we suggest keeping these decoration projects as simple and sustainable as possible.
Reduce the need to buy new items by getting creative with old or recycled materials, reuse old decorations, or recycle by buying previously owned decor.
Every home deserves to be beautiful, but let's make sure we are reducing our carbon footprint in the process!
Note the theme of the clocks in all these pictures.
There's nothing that says "future" like a clock!!!
1. The New Year Mantle
What a beautiful way to incorporate some New Year's charm into an existing Christmas mantle.
In this photo you can see that the designer simply added a few vintage clocks and a lovely framed "2014" to represent the upcoming year.
This is a very elegant way to transition into New Year's decor, and most of these materials can be found previously owned or can be upcycled.
2. The New Year Tree
Did you put up a Christmas tree this year?
If so, then you're in luck.
Don't take it down after Christmas...
Just add a few cutout numbers and clocks, and you've got yourself a NEW YEAR'S TREE!
We suggest using paper from your recycle bin to cut out these clocks and numbers.
3. The Clock Collection
Adding large hanging clocks around the house like these vintage paper clock faces, adds instant interest and makes a bold statement!!!
Again, these can be made from scratch using paper from your recycle bin and a black marker!
4. The Time For Dinner Setting
A bottle of champagne and a few adjustments to your table setting make this dining room scene perfect for the holiday.
The silver and gold dinnerware, with the paper cutout bold clock faces are the key elements for this design.
The paper cutouts can be made from recycled materials, while the dinnerware can be purchased previously owned for maximum sustainability.
5. The Time Tray
Is there anything a vintage tray is not good for?!
We love this enchanting arrangement of clocks placed upon a vintage doily and silver plated tray.
All of these products are found in abundance in shops that sell previously owned goods.
6. The Sophisticates Champagne Bar
Chalkboard painted walls are all the rage these days.
And for good reason.
Look at how sophisticated this arrangement becomes placed among this dark background!
We especially love the vintage decanters and champagne flutes ready to entertain.
These items are best purchased second hand as well. No need to buy them new! (except the champagne)
Now Ready, Set, PARTY!
Take this inspiration and have some fun creating a look of your own this holiday.
Thanks for Reading!
I hope you close out this year with the best of times with your friends and family.
I'm looking forward to seeing all of your decorations and hearing about your wonderful New Year!
