Liven up the walls and work with sparkly touches


To start the year on a bright and happy note, we make it a point to fill the table with fruits and specialties that many believe can help invite prosperity into the home. Some of us prefer to have kakanin, so that luck and good fortune will stick with the family and there are those who serve noodles for long life.

If you're all set on the food front, you also need to work on the ambiance of the home! Work on a couple of easy decorating ideas to create a space that's eager to welcome 2016. Here are ideas worth checking out:

Work on a wall

With just a few colorful paper and excess gift-wrappers, you can create wall accents that are perfect for a New Year's Eve party! Create cute designs and patterns–you can even prepare a 2016 cutout and use it to liven up the walls. You may also create buntings that you can easily hang and display.

Go for a metallic color scheme

Achieve a chic and sophisticated touch by opting for metallic touches. You can work with metallic paper in silver and gold to create mini decor pieces, party hats, and crafty souvenirs like the one seen in the photo.

Repurpose your jars

Received a lot of baked treats and sweets in charming mason jars? Repurpose these items by painting them with your chosen color or decorating it with colorful washi tape. Your finished project can be used to hold straws, spoons, and table napkins. Some of it can be part of your dining table centerpiece, too.
