Being clustered so close to Christmas, New Year’s often becomes an after thought in terms of decor. I, for one, don’t give the holiday much attention simply because I’m too depressed that Christmas is over. However, the trick to a stellar NYE party is to keep it simple with maximum impact. Here are 4 color schemes to consider and some tips on how to achieve it without taking up too much of your holiday time.

Black tends to connote sophistication and no kids. If that’s the feeling you’re going for, perfect! Combine it with another color to soften the look—consider using white or gold. For maximum impact on an empty wall, try hanging a series of paper fans in an organic shape and dripping balloons all over the floor or from the ceiling. It’s an easy solution for a great party look!

One of my favorite color schemes to work with lately is gold. There are a lot of gold products out right now , which makes it the perfect theme to work with. Combining gold flatware, cups, plates, and chargers creates a fancy, metallic theme.

White celebrates the color of snow. Consider finding a location with white walls and floors and combining all the table elements. String a “Happy New Year” banner above the table for a sweet message.

To me, silver seems to be the traditional color of New Year’s Eve. It’s the color of bells and chimes after all. Create a backdrop of honeycomb balls and fans in shades of greys and silvers or add a tablescape of silver candles and dinner details.

How will you be celebrating New Year’s Eve this year? What have you done in the past?
