Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year (a.k.a. the Spring Festival) is one of the world’s largest traditional celebrations based on lunar calendar and symbolizes starting off fresh with new goals and aspirations.
Before the festival begins, Chinese housewives carry out an in-depth cleaning to rid their home of any negative energy that might bring bad luck into the new year and then decorate with auspicious symbols to usher in good fortune and prosperity.
Chinese New Year decorations typically incorporate red hues and lucky images. Since 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit, expect to see rabbit decorations everywhere! You could also use an ornament representing longevity such as Chinese knots or even use a pineapple plant centerpiece as an abundance-bringing centerpiece in your home.
Eid al-Fitr is celebrated worldwide to mark the end of Ramadan. Families and friends come together, share treats and gifts, don new clothes, give charity donations and worship.
Eid is an occasion when people gather with friends and family for lunch or dinner, and making your home festive is essential to celebrating it in style. Here are a few decorations ideas to help mark this special occasion.
Eid al-Adha or Feast of Sacrifice is one of the two major Muslim holidays and commemorates Abraham (Ibrahim) obeying God by offering up his son Isaac even though it meant his death.
Christians and Jews also celebrate this story found in the Quran. Muslims around the world observe Eid-al-Fitr with visits to family, exchanging gifts and feasting. Some even slaughter an animal such as a cow, sheep or goat and share its meat amongst friends, family and those less fortunate.
Decorating for this festive celebration with Eid Mubarak banners and balloons to welcome your guests can make for an impressive welcoming statement. A wreath adorned with flowers or fairy lights hanging on the door could also work nicely as an elegant touch.
Ramadan marks a vital period for Muslims worldwide: an opportunity for reflection and renewal. Believers fast from dawn until dusk during this holy month while spending quality time with family and friends.
Decorate your home to commemorate Eid al-Fitr this month. Make a countdown piece or display chalkboard quotes each day leading up to Eid al-Fitr; dress up your dining table with summer blooms or festive wreath centerpieces; set out a tray filled with dates, nuts and dried fruit as an early morning snack – any way you choose, it all counts toward Eid al-Fitr!
Balloon Ramadan decorations can add flair to your space. Traditional or modern decorations from nearby stores or online marketplaces can help create an inviting and relaxing living area during this special month.

Though some superstitions may remain associated with it today’s Halloween is mostly observed as secular celebration of children.
