If you’re in the camp that takes down the Christmas tree straight after Boxing Day, you might be more inclined to go all out for New Year’s and deck the halls to see the new year in with style.
Whether you’re throwing a New Year’s Eve party or just cosying up at home with picky food and counting the new year in, we’ve put together a list of some of the best New Year decoration ideas to enter 2024 in the most on-trend way.
New Year Decoration Ideas 2024
1.Bring The New Year In With Pink
Traditional colours for New Year’s Eve centre around gold, blacks and silver, but the unexpected can be an even better way to decorate for the New Year.
Embrace colours such as pinks and reds for a warm, inviting and colourful way to dress your table and walls.
2. Elevate Your Fireplace
Update your Christmas fireplace decor look for the new year by simply adding some garlands and fairy lights.
This look is SO simple and easy to achieve yet looks amazing, it serves as a great backdrop for photos too.
3. Create A Balloon Feature Wall
If you’re throwing a NYE party, a balloon feature wall will probably be the most used and appraised decor of the evening!
You can either have a go at making your own, or get it created by a local decor specialist. They look amazing as backdrops for people to grab photos as the evening goes by.
4. Bring The Party To The Table With Disco Balls
If you add any element to your table decorations, make it disco balls! These string lights add unexpected warmth and light to the table, whilst the hanging disco ball sets the tone for the evening.
5. New Year Balloon Mosaic
Ginger Ray are one of my favourites for decorations, and I adore this New Year balloon mosaic. It’s perfect for creating a photo backdrop, adding to a table or even to the entrance of your home to greet your guests in style.
6. Black & Gold Balloon Decoration
How amazing? Featuring traditional black, gold and silver colours, this balloon decoration wall is the ultimate in styling for a NYE party.
7. Embrace The Silver Tones
Why not ditch the black and gold tones and opt for something pared back, but just as luxurious by leaning into silver tones.
Think disco balls, silver balloons, hanging garlands and 2024 balloons.
8. Style Your Food Table To Perfection
Nothing says Christmas and New Year like a table full of picky bits. Elevate the table for the evening by adding wall decor, hanging garlands and fun decorative touches to the food on the table.
9. Create A DIY Photo Wall
You don’t need to spend a fortune on creating a balloon wall or a backdrop for your New Year’s Eve images. If you have a sparkly tablecloth or piece of material simply affix it to your curtains and add your own balloon arch to it.
It looks amazing and will be loved by your guests!
10. There’s No Such Thing As Too Much Sparkle
If you’re wondering if anything has too much sparkle for NYE, think again. Add all the sparkle for a beautiful and photo worthy occasion.
I love this sparkly Happy New Year garland which could be added to a wall, fireplace or any empty space that needs elevating.
11. Fill A Champagne Tub With Baubles
This simple decor hack will elevate any table on NYE and you can recreate it with what you already have.
With your Champagne in situ, simply fill the tub with colour appropriate baubles for a fun, festive feel.
12. Create A Balloon Ceiling
A balloon ceiling not only looks great but again, it makes for the most perfect photo opportunities.
Combine different colours for a varied look or opt for a single colour like gold or black depending on your colour theme.
13. Use Gold & White For A Fun Colour Scheme
Gold and white is a minimal and fun colour scheme for a NYE party. Use these colours throughout your table setting with straws, decorations, paper plates, napkins, sequins and table runners.
14. Use A Cake Stand For A Fun Centrepiece
Looking for a different centrepiece idea? Grab a cake stand and elevate it with baubles, beads and dress the bottom with tinsel.
Use colours from your colour scheme for a cohesive, fun feel throughout your table.
15. Use Black & White For A Minimalist Feel
A monochromatic colour palette is a typically minimalist, Scandic colour scheme and it looks gorgeous in a table setting as shown below for a refreshing take on seeing in the new year.
Fill vases with gypsophila sprigs for a fresh, modern feel.
16. Empty Wall? Create A Photo Backdrop
If you have an empty wall, it’s the perfect place to create your own DIY backdrop.
Find a table cloth or some loose material you have lying around, add a garland, some balloons and anything else that you might want for fun photo props.
17. Hanging Garlands and Black & Gold
If you have a light fixture above your table, this can be a great way to impress your guests and set the tone for the table.
Hang garlands from the light, interweave fairy lights or even wrap in fake foliage for a fun focal centrepiece.
