I had taken off all of my Christmas ornaments from our tree and just left our lights on. I went to the dollar store and loaded up on horns, crepe paper, sparkly ribbons, those annoying things that you blow into and it makes a sound like an air horn ( I forgot the name ), and glitter masks. I actually might have cleared the shelves. Not going to lie. I used all the party supplies for "ornaments" and used different colored crepe paper for our "garland". I topped it off with a New Year's Eve hat. It was an inexpensive way to change up our tree and super festive! When I took it all off, I put them in a box and stored them away for next year. Cute, right?
The balloons underneath the tree were left over from the balloon drop the hubby and I made. (you can find that here). I went WAY too crazy with the balloons and actually thought 6 bags of balloons would fit into two tablecloths. Man, was I SO wrong. I had balloons everywhere. Around my tree, stuffed into the bottoms of my end tables, hanging from walls, and anywhere else that had an empty space. I obviously didn't think of the clean up with this process.
But I thought this was a great way to celebrate the new year with christmas decor most of us leave up until January. It's festive, fun, and a really easy way to ring in the new year without breaking the bank!
