Terrace decorating ideas for the New Year

Welcome the new year with a sky full of stars at your very own rooftop party. Read on for quick tips


The biggest night of the year is almost here and so is the season for rooftop parties. A keen eye for design can transform your rooftop into the perfect party pad. As you raise a toast to good friends and a great year ahead, you may just end up thanking us for these handy tips for decorating your terrace.


1.    A terrace generally offers more flexibility with decorating than an indoor space as it has fewer walls and almost no fixed furniture.


2.    Decorate the area with potted greens like frangipani or palms (you can rent these from a nursery), and fresh flowers for a dash of colour.


3.    The lights should be dim –  the idea is to enjoy the moonlight, open skies and cool fresh air.


4.    String lights conjure magic in any place, but if you want to impress, choose lights that go beyond bulbs. Get crafty and make your own bulb covers for the wow-factor (and Instagram-worthiness).


5.    Lanterns can do wonders, or you could round up your hurricanes (Read about our top picks here) and mason jars and arrange them in clusters.


6.    If you don’t have enough chairs to seat people, demarcate a special area with few tall cocktail tables for people to gather round and chat.


7.    Avoid foods that must be served hot, so you can put out larger batches at a time and let them rest at room temperature. Mark food counters with dish names so people can help themselves when they want to grab a bite.


8.    Load a beverage tub with ice and drinks for guests. In case you would like to include a cocktail, Sangria can be prepared in advance.


9.    Bring in your personal style to mix and match your favourite plates and patterns, just make sure everything feels cohesive in the end. If not, disposables are also a great way to go.

Start your party with your best foot forward. A cheeky floor mat is great a way to set the tone of your party.
Line up lots of lanterns along the walkway to your terrace party for a soft, warm light.
Use a mix of candlestands and votives to create a soft mood.
Platters of cold cuts and cheese ensure no one's stuck in the kitchen for long hours whipping up food for the guests.
Just like a buffet for food, create a buffet for mixers, condiments and garnishes for cocktails so your guests can pick and experiment with their drinks.
Pair interesting lighting elements with hints of green along the passageway leading to the terrace. This will not only set the mood but also give a hint of things to come.
