This year, add a unique twist to your New Year’s Eve decorating ideas. Bring your heritage into the decor.

Let’s say your family’s background is Colombian. In addition to the typical New Year’s decorations that everyone displays, add the following:

Champaign Newyears Dimare Design
  1. Create a centerpiece of fresh grapes to honor the Colombian tradition of eating 12 grapes at midnight on New Year’s Eve.
  2. Set bottles of champagne with washcloths wrapped around them. Colombians pour champagne over their body at midnight for prosperity.
  3. Decorate the house with old and new empty suitcases. Colombians run around the block with empty suitcases on New Year’s Eve so they’ll have a year filled with travel.
  4. Colombian custom also says to wear yellow underwear on the New Year. Wrap paper napkins in a pair of yellow underwear and use them as a funny gift to take home.
  5. Bring out old and new family photos. Display them everywhere, even on the dinner table.

Find out about your own ancestors’ New Year’s Eve customs and add that extra layer of family heritage to the decorations. It will add fun and create memorable storytelling. Plus, if you’re Colombian, your guests will never forget the yellow underwear napkins.
