The sweet table is special for this; you can form messages with the food or use color tones that match the decoration. For example, you can make a cake or cookies with the number of the new year and muffins with wishes for the new year. Use food pins that say a happy new year and so on.
In addition to the main table where the food will be, you can decorate the walls, the entrance door, the sweet table and even the bathroom. Don’t limit yourself. Look for ways to make every corner special. Here are some ideas:
Balloons fill spaces in a great way. In addition to being very economical, they adapt to any celebration.
