When hosting a reception for New Year, it’s important to make sure people are enjoying themselves, that they are enjoying the company of others and enjoying the food…This is only made possible if the overall spirit of the room enables it. Guests should be surprised just the second after they came in! You want them to go back home with the souvenir of a harmonious decoration and (why not) with more... (see tip #3)
 
Follow these 3 tips to ensure a successful dinner! It’s never too late to make it simple AND perfect:

 
#1
Decide on 
a theme (forest; snow; exotic; beach; futurist; love; peace…) and try to minimize the number of colors to only. It helps to give a harmonious and a neat look. More colors will give the impression that you have picked up all you had and placed it on the table without putting efforts. It could look quite messy if you have more than 2 colors.
 
#2
Prepare a 
“centre de table” (center of the table) according to the table shape (round or square); on which you will dispose items such as candles (not scented); wooden pieces or all kind of decorations according to your theme… If you need this space to place a dish later on; prepare the decoration on a tray that you will move away while eating (avoid puting it back in the kitchen, leave it somewhere where it is still within sight, people will keep on admiring it!).
 
#3
There is one last detail that keeps astonishing your guests! When you place the napkins for each guest, you can also add a 
small gift for each of them to bring back home! This will be an unexpected surprise for them and everyone love surprises, isn’t it ?! It could be a simple envelope filled with 2 or 3 chocolates; a tiny decoration to put in their home, on their fridge; anything that will remind them of the beautiful evening they spent at yours! Any other small treat that you can think of? ☃
 
Now, wait and see; your guests might ask you for another party soon!
 
Happy preparation! And don’t forget to share this article with your friends, on our Facebook and Twitter pages!
