Whether you’re crowing about the Year of the Rooster or going whole hog for the Year of the Pig, it’s easy to celebrate Chinese New Year in style with great decorations, tableware and more from Shindigz. We carry everything you need, whether you’re planning a small get-together with friends or a big bash at a large venue. Our Asian party theme decorations can get you off to a great start with decorating. Choose the colorful pastels shades of our Secret Zen Garden props or the rich, traditional gold and red hues of our Shanghai Moon theme. Choose a theme kit that gathers all the major elements in one money-saving package or buy props separately if you’re working with a smaller venue or a smaller budget.
For parties at home, nothing sets the scene for Chinese New Year like colorful hanging decorations. Paper lanterns are an obvious and affordable choice. Vary the shape to increase the visual interest, and supplement their solid hues with a brilliantly colored foot-long paper dragon. For centerpieces, a simple glass container filled with fortune cookies carries out your theme at a casual party. For more elegant events, float lilies in glass bowls or place a simple tea light atop a mirror. Colorful fans have potential as place settings and as favors. So, too, does a simple Chinese restaurant carryout box. Tuck a coordinating napkin and utensils inside. Plan a candy buffet and guests can use the boxes to create a sweet carryout treat of their own.
