Quiet New Years Eve Decor- Indoor picnic?

New Years Eve decor is not a holiday that I usually give a second thought of decorating for. After a solid three months of styling and decorating I’m ready for a break and ready to get back to faux finish and painting. Could I style a big New Years Eve bash? I absolutely can.

As far as decorating my home for New Years it just isn’t on my radar. This year was a bit different, though.

Creating this style for yourself doesn’t require much decorating at all.  It’s more like setting a table only it’s a cozy little indoor space. Think indoor New Years Eve picnic. So simple and easy to do.

New Years Decor Picnic… that’s the plan!

As I sat reflecting on this past year, making plans for 2016, setting blogging goals and trying to formulate how to merge who I am into what I do, I was suddenly interrupted by “creative brain.” That happens a lot and that is how this New Years Eve idea even came to be. Plus, I like picnics and I plan to incorporate some of that into 2016 blogging calendar.  I will share more about 2016 in another post.Cozy and quiet New Years Eve for two.

My Christmas decor is still up so that helped out my vision quite a bit.

Pretty cool, huh!

FYI: I’m not exactly proficient at these night time photo shots.  I figured when inspiration hits it’s an excellent opportunity to practice, and also a step towards becoming better skilled with low-light shots. This past year I have seen tremendous changes with my photography style and have increased my skill in capturing what I see with my eyes into the photo.

Check out my Instagram to see for yourself.

It’s exciting to see positive growth with something I love so much.

It’s also a bit necessary since I do need photos to showcase my work.

All I used for this space was Christmas garland that was already up, a fuzzy faux fur blanket, and a few throw pillows. The “tray” is  a large gilded mirror. A few clocks, candles, and some loose metallic colored Christmas balls are the only decorative items I used to create this cozy New Years space.

You can easily create something very similar with a few blankets, large European pillows and smaller throw pillows for the seating area.  Gather a few Christmas balls, a small timepiece, even a neat watch would work, candles, champagne, and pretty flutes.

You could go all out and serve a meat and cheese tray along with a variety of fruits.

When it comes to big celebrations for New Years Eve I tend to shy away. I enjoy catching the last of Hallmarks Christmas movies or doing a marathon with Netflix. I haven’t decided which of those options will be on the agenda for New Years Eve, but one of them will be going down. Nice, quiet, and simple is how I spend my New Years Eve.

And here’s another little vignette that I adore! Mercury glass mixed with a toile patterned vintage plate that holds my favorite candle and strand of garland with pearls and gold might look Christmasy but throw in a clock face and bam… instant NYE vignette.  I have another version of this photo on my Christmas Home Tour.

I wish each of you happy and blessed New Year. I hope all of your dreams and goals come to fruition or at least that you make substantial progress to accomplishing what your heart desires. Most of all I wish everyone a year full of love, happy moments, and memories with the people you do life with. Last but  not least- health! A year of good health is something I hope for all.
