You will be quite happy when you check out at the register after noticing that you have spent very little compared to what larger department stores charge. The greatest advantage? Nobody will notice the difference!
-Start at the Door
You want your guests to feel welcomed upon entering your home. Choose a nice door mat for the event and place a pretty wreath on your door. Your entrance will make a statement already and your guests will know they are at the right place. Want to exaggerate? Adorn the door and stairwell with Christmas lights.
Gather lots of colorful candles that will create the right ambiance. While scented candles are tempting to buy, these should be left at the store because their smells may mingle creating the ideal ground for headaches and sniffles. Choose unscented candles and if you want to add a special touch, cover them with a touch of gold glitter.
-Best Wishes Balloons
Prepare some fortune messages wishing good things such as love, money, health, fame, wealth etc. Slip them in balloons and then blow them up. These balloons may be then be handpicked by the guests and popped once midnight strikes. To make them more appealing and festive, decorate them with some extra left over gold glitter.
-Let Your Room Twinkle

Adding some gold decor will help jazz up the room making it look festive.
As seen, there are many ways to add some festivity and jazz up your home for the event. Of course, it all needs some careful planning in order to avoid last minute stress.
