Decorating for the Lunar New Year

Get ready to celebrate and start decorating for the Lunar New Year. Decorate for the Lunar New Year with items such as lanterns, take-out boxes, festive table settings, oranges, and tangerines. Tie in traditional symbols and incorporate the colors red and gold in the decorations.
 Take advantage of these traditional Lunar New Year decoration ideas:

  • Lanterns: Select beautiful Lunar New Year lantern decorations to hang throughout your home or venue. Hang the lanterns both inside and outside of your home. Use the outdoor lanterns to help guests identify your home for a Lunar New Year party.
  • Take-out Boxes: Set up a table specifically for Lunar New Year party favors. Display the favors so they have a two-fold effect (serving as both favors and decorations). Put Lunar fortune cookies inside red take-out boxes. Decorate the outside of the boxes with gold designs, writing, or symbols.
  • Table Setting: Host a Lunar New Year party and be selective when it comes to the table settings. Lay down the foundation of the table with a red tablecloth. Use gold dinner plates and napkins. Place a centerpiece in the middle of the table such as a dragon figurine to symbolize power and good luck.
  • Oranges and Tangerines: Decorate which oranges and tangerines, which symbolize luck and wealth, as another Lunar New Year decoration idea. Put the oranges and tangerines in a bowl and place them in the middle of the tables for centerpieces. For another idea, hand out the fruit as the Lunar New Year party favors.
Plan out your Lunar New Year decorations ahead of time, and don’t forget to clean your home in advance of setting up the décor. Clean away any ill-fortune, and welcome luck for the upcoming new year!
