When it comes to New Year’s celebrations, house parties are always my favorite. Actually, house parties are just my favorite in general. But on New Year’s Eve, you have even more opportunity to bring fun décor elements of shimmer and shine into the mix. This year, I love the idea of spicing up pieces of nature with a little bit of paint. Read on to see how I’ll do this!
I’m endlessly inspired by natural elements like flowers, twigs, and stones. They have such a way of bringing about feelings of groundedness and ease, and when it comes to decorating with these things, the possibilities seem to go on forever.
Once I got my natural elements nailed down, I chose a color palette. White and metallics are always a great starting point for a New Year’s palette. I went with white and gold, and then added some greens to represent hope and growth for the new year!
I spray painted some rocks gold, as well as the tips of a few leaves. I also added hand-touched designs to a few leaves using white paint.
I then painted my twigs white — and one gold, as well!
I searched around my home for any other decor pieces that I thought fit with the feeling. I found some lacey fabric and a couple of white metal decorations.
My original plan was to use everything to decorate the top of the table, but I realized I wanted to do something different… so I chose the floor instead! I laid down the lace and topped it with little arrangements. I made piles of rocks into which I stuck twigs and leaves…
I snipped the tips of flowers and hung them from branches using white string…
And just moved everything around until it felt just right.
How fun would it be to put floor pillows around this setup and have everyone sit and hangout while they enjoyed their appetizers?
