Tradition & Celebration – Christmas Brings Joy to All

Beautiful sense of tradition and joy of celebration make Christmas special to all of us. Each Christmas brings us the memories of all the Christmas seasons we have had since childhood and we pass on the tradition and values to our children as well. Christmas tree, lights, illuminations, decorations, Christmas feast and gifts – all are too important to be missed.

Though Christmas is all about tradition and family customs, we can change the way we decorate the trees, wrap the gifts, and serve the feast and light up the house. You can choose a theme as the focus of the celebration and do all the activities to match the theme and treat this as an opportunity to work as a team with our children to create a new Christmas look.

If you are thinking of gold and glowing cream as the theme for the Christmas, you can make all ornaments, decorations, lightings, gift wrappings, dining room and living room wall décor, furniture upholstery and cushions and rugs in a matching color combination and make this entire Christmas celebration a gold and cream expression of your own style statement.

Check out what ornaments you have that will match the colour scheme you are going to adopt this year. And start creating your own decorations or hunt for decorations in the same colour combinations so that your ornaments and glitter tinsel, garlands and other decorations are all in the same golden and cream combinations.

Check out how to make all the illuminations and lights to be in the same colour. Now that you have coloured mini lamps and serial lamp strings, you can use them. You can mix and match the golden and amber coloured bulbs with red, green and blue to give a layered look that will add depth to the decoration and colour scheme.

Choose gift wrapping papers in the same colour combinations. And use golden coloured ribbons to tie a bow for the gifts. Use the same colour for your table arrangements and napkins etc. With upholstery in the same colour combinations and wall décor also matching, you can have a beautiful colour schemed Christmas celebration that will look stunning.

Here are some ideas of decorations for your Christmas tree and home from Season Christmas. You can pick up your own favourite from the different and lovely looking ideas for a stunning Christmas décor. I think all of them look great. Don’t you?

Welcome the New Year with Parties and Fireworks

The old year is over and out, the New Year is just rolling in; all of us are ready to welcome the New Year with beautiful decorations, glittery lights, fireworks, scrumptious food and sparkling wine. The New Year’s Eve is for having a fun time, enjoying yourselves and eagerly awaiting the start of the New Year with loved ones – all our friends and family – around us.

Plan and decorate your home for the New Year party. You do not have to spend a fortune on buying expensive decorations or high-end party food. You can decorate the home well within the budget you have decided by planning wisely and buying prudently. Make an exhaustive list of all the dollar shops and other departmental stores which sell all the New Year party items.

Check how many guests are coming to attend your party and make a full list of how many adults and children, if it is a family-type get together. Visit all the neighbourhood dollar stores to find what items are popular and in demand this year. Look for the New Year hats, headgears, goggles and other sundry items that are generally loved by the kids as party wear.

Check out for streamers, balloons, candles, confetti, stars, and other glitter and tinsel items that will make the party venue look gorgeous and decked grandly in candle and electric light. Buy some great looking flowers. They will add to the classy look and spread their sweet fragrance. Arrange for a lot of illuminations, ceiling and table lights so the party area looks brightly lit.

Have a lot of chairs along the walls and keep the central area free for people who love to dance. Arrange for foot-tapping kind of music that is light and popular and play it gently as a background. Place a beautiful wreath at the entrance and focus some light over the entrance specially. Have glittery stars and spangles hanging from ceiling to look festive.

Here are some beautiful ways to arrange your party venue from Colour Box. Look at the beautifully lit 2012 – year sign that really looks cool and elegant. You can have great looking fireworks lighting up the sky when the countdown ends and the New Year has been ushered in. How are you preparing for your New Year party? Hope you like some of these ideas? Have a wonderful and happy new year!

Enjoy Your New Year Party – With Mood Lighting Matching Tableware

How ready are you to celebrate the New Year? Have you got all your party planning done and menu ready? All illuminations finished and decorations completed New Year is the time everybody just loves to celebrate and have a great party with sparkling wine and lip smacking food; and keep dancing until the New Year is ushered in.

Have you decided on the theme of the party? Then you should also plan about mood lighting that will enhance the theme and decoration of the party. With planning, you can have perfectly matched tableware, stemware, napkins, table runners and table clothes as well as party games also. Mood lighting can make a real difference to the ambiance.

Another very important item is to select the right music for the party. Selecting a genre to match the theme of the party is very important. Also it is very important to plan the songs the right way. Starting out slow and mellow is a good idea and as it gets nearer to midnight, faster and livelier sounding songs will make the mood more jubilant and rapturous.

One sure way of making the party a smashing success is to have a lot of spicy, tasty and cheese filled foods ready as snacks to go with sparkling wine. Everybody loves to keep snacking while they enjoy the games, dance right up to the midnight countdown. New Year parties are so much fun filled that people just do not want to stop.

You need to plan the entertainments according to the kind of guests you are planning to have. If you are thinking of an adults-only party – plan for an adult theme party. It is best conducted indoors where you will not be surprised by inadvertently wandering children. You can plan for sophisticated décor and games with champagne flowing literally.

On the other hand a free for all – family kind of party including all children, the children can have noise makers and get to enjoy other noisy fun-filled games and activities that they will enjoy. Have a lot of cookies, cakes and other sugary treats the children love which they can have to their heart’s content on the occasion of New Year.

Getting Ready For Christmas – Candle Decorations

house-all-set-to-welcome-Santa

Spreading cheer and peace is the message of Christmas season. Year after year, we celebrate the coming of Christ with celebration all over the home. Lighting up the house, decorating with holly, wreath, having feasts with the whole family and friends, exchanging gifts with all and praying for peace and cheer to all – all are part of Christmas celebrations. No matter how big or small the house you are living in whether you are living in a high-rise or a small studio loft, whether you have extensive outdoor area or just a tiny balcony, Christmas celebrations are not complete unless you get to decorate your exteriors, your balcony with wreaths, green garlands, figurines and candles & illuminations to show that you are celebrating.

Be it small or large wherever you are doing the decorations, you can make it look as warm and beautiful as the interior of your home where you are busy decorating the home, trees and setting up the socks at the mantle place. And pay the same kind of attention to outsides so your home can look pretty inside and outside ready for the celebrations. What are the things that you can use to deck up the outside area? You can put up a near-life size Santa or a Snowman in glowing red dress and illuminate him nicely. Get one or two rein deer and keep them near the Santa. Today there are beautiful reindeer’s available which get illuminated when connected to the power point. You can get one of these!

Of course wreaths, garlands and bunting, greenery with illumination – what all the things you are putting up inside can be attempted outside. Place wreaths and greenery with illumination hanging on the outer frame of the front windows and front doors. Drape strings of lights along the threshold and rim and light up prettily. You can have console table or two – in the foyer and can have another just outside the door where you can light candles. If there is a stiff breeze, protect it with beautiful looking holders. There are colorful streamers with string lights connected. These look very festive and make the house look gay, warm, cheerful and really welcoming.

Here are some beautiful exterior decorations from American Sale. How gay the lit-Santa Clause looks! The lights are shatterproof globes in diverse colors. The illuminated reindeer looks just so real! And the red bells are a nice touch, how have you decorated your home?
