The holidays are without a doubt, busy and hectic. If you’re one of those people who are always hosting gatherings, parties and the like, listen up! This post is for you. Today is all about getting the most out of your Christmas decor and extending them straight through to creating a festive New Years setting. I’m showing you how decorating for Christmas and New Years doesn’t have to be a big expense or headache.
How To Extend Your Christmas Decor Through New Years Eve
I figured the best way to create a Christmas setting AND a New Year one was to stick to a theme that could work for both. After brainstorming, it was clear a metallic and white one was ideal. This way it all felt more like a winter wonderland and not a kitschy Christmas with green and red.
I used to always do silver and red for my tree and have officially tossed everything after this shopping haul at Lowe’s. These white and silver pieces and copper beauties have replaced everything. I figured it was time for an upgrade anyway considering all the things I had were over 10 years old and screamed college days. I’m ashamed to even admit it, but so many of my old ornaments were plastic and plain old childish. Grabbing all the pretty ornaments got me so excited to start decorating for Christmas. I threw on some Christmas music and went to town!
Now onto New Years Eve. I’m not one that’s into NYE at all. I regrettably always go out with friends to find myself miserable and tired the next day. If you ask me, it’s not the best way to start off the year. This year, I’m thinking of having a few friends over for dinner and keeping it super low key.
How To Turn Your Christmas Decor Into NYE Decor
To easily take these pieces from Christmas entertaining to an intimate dinner for NYE, I simply did a few things. The goal is to stick tot he winter wonderland theme and not go into the NYE trend too hard. A winter wonderland with a little glam will feel very New Years Eve appropriate.
Pull Some Ornaments Off The Tree
Yes, pull a few ornaments off of your tree and add them to your dinner table. I promise, your tree won’t miss them. And your table will feel festive and coordinate with everything.
Use White Or Metallic Trees
I pulled a few ornaments off and added them to my table with these fun metallic trees. This made the table feel like a winter wonderland instantly. Plus, the metallic trees feel special for NYE, but also work for your Christmas decor throughout the season and around the home.
Set The Table To Match
For the table setting, I stuck with the metallic and white theme and added in these blush and gold plates to tie in the pink in my home. Lastly, I used these snowflake gift tags for place cards. They feel wintery without feeling like Christmas. I just love how it all came out and can’t wait to plan up a menu for NYE.
With a few simple swaps, you can very easily transform your space from one winter holiday to the next. There’s no need to completely transform or redecorate. Keep scrolling to see the whole look!
