Trends for Lunar New Year decoration in Vietnam
Besides the preparation of food, drinks, etc., the decoration for the house is also important. Most Vietnamese families have put up a lot of effort to decorate for Tet to welcome a new year in a warm and cozy atmosphere.
Decorating the living room
Flower is one of the indispensable things for Lunar New Year decoration in Vietnam. Flowers not only make the house vital, full of spring feeling but also bring the hope for a lucky, happy and successful year. Peach blossoms are typical in the North and yellow apricot blossoms are typical in the South of Vietnam. These two kinds of flower only bloom in the spring with the meaning of wishing for a cozy, joyful and hopeful new year.
Besides, eglantine is also used for Lunar New Year decoration in Vietnam as people often cut its branches to decorate with other flowers.
The eglantine branches with a series of small buds and a smooth feeling when touching can’t be confused with any other flowers in Tet holiday. This flower is always attractive with many colors like green, red, pink, yellow, violet, representing the youth and liveliness. Eglantine also symbolizes luck and prosperity; therefore, many families often use this flower for Lunar New Year decoration in Vietnam.
We can put this flower into large mouth vases (suitable for large living rooms). We can also choose eglantine branches that are shaped into various styles to decorate your space.
Paintings for Lunar New Year
To maintain the tradition of the New Year, we can’t miss the custom of hanging paintings for Tet decorations. Paintings not only make your house more beautiful but also bring the meaning of good luck and harmony.
People often choose scenery paintings (villages, mountains, rivers, flowers, etc.) based on the wishes of the owner, hanging the paintings mainly in the living room.
The red couplet (red parallel sentences) is an indispensable accessory for Lunar New Year decoration in Vietnam. It is usually strips of red or pink paper, the two ends of paper strips are wood or bamboo lines so that when hung up, the couplets would be flat. The red couplet is not only the wish for a happy year and luck for the owner but also encouraging spirit for everyone when the spring is coming.
Lucky ornament is designed from red thread attached with a big gold bag and red firecrackers, symbolizing the wealth, prosperity, luck and fortune. This is also a favorite decorative item of a lot of families.
These lucky ornaments are usually hung inside the house or on the peach, apricot or kumquat branches, on the windows, hanging next to the parallel sentences (red couplets), placed on the fruits tray, etc. depending on the position that homeowners desire. This combination makes a colorful scene and a warm atmosphere of Tet.
Decorating the ceiling
While decorating for New Year's Day, besides decorating the living room, the owner should not forget to decorate the ceiling. You can decorate the room with fresh flowers to soften the space and bring the colors of spring here. Flowers used in Tet holiday should have red blooming gladiolus, gerbera, etc.
Creating a different Lunar New Year decoration in Vietnam
The traditional Tet decoration is a closed, cozy Vietnamese style that is displayed in every place, from the gate to the living room and kitchen.
In the Oriental perspective, red represents good luck. The red color of the interior and flowers as well as the accessories of living room decoration such as red envelope, red parallel sentences will bring a lot of luck.
Your house will give a unique impression with lanterns embroidered with flowers, feng-shui scenery or just colorful colors, which is enough to make up a fully Tet atmosphere.
