New year for me is a family holiday, and the tradition to celebrate it in a family circle I broke only a couple of times. Once I was celebrating on a yacht in the Caribbean, which in itself is great, but the feeling of the holiday, alas, no. That's how it was: suddenly, in broad daylight, my friends and I realized that the New Year is about to come. They ran to the bar, the clock was about 18 local time ... Hello, New Year! Honestly, we did not feel the holiday at all. Other people's traditions take root with difficulty. Bath, for example, happens to me in a year. Getting there is difficult, but the tradition itself is to my liking: it's also a great way to see your friends on the eve of the holiday! I really like the tradition of gift-givers: Everyone writes his desires, the others pull out one idea for a gift, which one - remains unknown until the coming of the holiday. In the second round, names are drawn and played out, who gives whom to whom. I advise you to take it into service: the idea is interesting, and the gifts are useful. This tradition is also known as the "Secret Santa" and is ideal for gifting colleagues with gifts, which we successfully use. With colleagues, we arrange corporate parties that promote the appearance of a festive mood, for example, went to Karelia and other unusual places.

This tradition was taught to me by my mother at school. We put the gifts strictly under the tree - this is an obligatory rule: they look much more festive and desirable. And where without a playlist of old favorite songs in anticipation of the coming holiday? Menu for the New Year's table we make long andcarefully. Once they even decided on a total experiment: they abandoned the usual dishes and replaced them with new ones. But the idea did not take root: all the same, the New Year is proven dishes. To create a festive mood, decorate the table with oranges and tangerines with a carnation stuck in them - the smell turns out to be unique! You can not do without mulled wine - we cook it on weekends since the beginning of December and create a New Year mood. The next day after the fun we make a big walk to "disperse" the nourishing dishes from the festive table. Sometimes we get together and we cook pelmeni in a home-like way - a very spiritual tradition. As a designer I can not help but share a couple of tipsabout the festive interior. In it, it is important to all set a single style: the color of decor, Christmas ornaments and even clothes. Especially if you decide to opt for a thematic decor, remember the important rule: moderation and one common theme for all elements. Choosing the theme of festive decoration, decide on the center of the composition. Traditionally, it's a Christmas tree, but an honorable role can be taken by a fireplace decorated with a charming spruce wreath, or an elegant dining table in the living room. Make sure that the Christmas decorations are conceptual and emphasize the style of your interior. Related articles Make a choice in favor of natural! Instead of artificial wreaths and decor elements, decorate your favorite house with wreaths of elegantly intertwined living twigs. Such a wreath can be ordered from a florist, and if you create it yourself, this will be a real occasion for pride. Save the life of the Christmas tree: it can be purchased in a tub, and after the holiday you can land on the street so that it continues to please you already there. And if you have given preference to an artificial tree, then you must choose the most qualitative, the most natural. Otherwise, the main decoration of your interior risks to look lean and mediocre. Figures of modern mass production,which often do not decorate the interior, but, on the contrary, depersonalize it, making it "one of many", replace it with stylized candlesticks-lanterns. In addition to beauty, they will bring warmth, coziness and fairytale atmosphere into the house. We see multi-colored garlands in almost every house or cafe before the New Year. Do not be like everyone, give preference to monochrome garlands with uniform light and paper stars-lamps, located on the windowsill or above the window. As an alternative to the past rains and tinsel, use stylish paper garlands and paper flags. I myself am a big fan of proven traditions, but sometimes it's worth trying new ones. Try it and you make an unusual note in your usual design! Well, perhaps, the main advice: Do not tighten with the decoration of the interior. Thoughtful and harmonious decor is hardly possible to create a day before the holiday. Agree, New Year's Eve already want to meet in beauty, not in thoughts, how to create it. Meet the New Year beautifully and with the right mood! Related articles
