It’s that time of the year again - the time when the festivities never seem to stop and the month-long celebrations are in full swing. If you found yourself offering to host the annual New Year’s Eve celebrations this year, it might be time to start thinking about decorating your home accordingly. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can spruce up your communal spaces ready to welcome in both your guests and the new year.

In today’s post, we’re covering the different ways there are to decorate each communal area in your home to make it the most memorable party of the (new) year. From the latest living room additions to stylish and practical dining room considerations, we’re providing you with plenty of inspiration in time for the clock striking 12.


For the New Year’s nibbles

Whether you’ve chosen to host your bubbles and nibbles on your glistening kitchen island or would rather they were dotted out around your home, picking practical furniture that gives your guests easy access to your spread is crucial to minimising miscellaneous crumbs on your carpet.

By picking beautiful bar stools for your visitors to sit on around your kitchen island, the social aspect of your night will flourish as your guests relax in conversation around your food display. Alternatively, if you’d rather your guests were spread out more evenly in your home, choosing side tables for your living room to place platters of food on top of is a great way for your friends and family to enjoy a range of offerings in every room of the house.

For a statement sophisticated look

If you’re looking to kill two birds with one stone and implement an integral piece of furniture into your home that will wow for years to come, then opting for a stunning swirl table for your dining room might be just the excuse you need to get it in time for your evening do.

By introducing a solid and beautiful centrepiece into your home, your guests can gather around it and celebrate in style in the evening before you prepare it ready for your dinner-time meal the following day. Investing in an artistic dining room table and chairs set that forms an important part of your home is just one way to make sure your night is remembered for all the right reasons!


For the midnight crash

Once the nibbles have gone and everyone’s just the right amount of merry, it’ll be time for your guests to settle down around the TV waiting for Jools Holland to make an annual celebratory appearance on your countdown screen.

Of course, you’ll want to make sure your guests are as comfortable as possible and welcome the celebrations in with style on a luxury sofa surrounded by close friends and family members. Not only is introducing a sofa into your living room a solid long-term, aesthetic investment, but including a similarly beautiful side table for your guests to put down their empty champagne flutes will make your living room all the more practical.

Whether you’re the traditional New Year’s Eve party host amongst your group of friends and are looking to mix up your decor this year, or this is your first go at entertaining a group of guests, there are plenty of ways you can introduce a picture-perfect party atmosphere into your home.
