Decorating Tips for Ringing in 2022!


December has finally arrived and the bounty of colorful lights, lawn décor, door wreaths and holiday parties are in full swing. Since most of you have probably completed your decorating for the many holidays that are observed in the month of December (Did you know there are 14 holidays that are celebrated around the world in December?), let’s discuss decorating and planning for New Year’s Eve!

Whether you’re planning on hosting a big New Year’s Eve Party or celebrating with a few friends, your evening deserves a bit of glitz, glam and a lot of laughter! Unlike the stress of preparing a Thanksgiving meal or finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list, Ringing in the New Year should be a fun evening with minimal stress.
