Come Party With Me: Chinese New Year — The Look

There's just one thing to remember when designing the look for a Chinese New Year party: don't use any white. In the Chinese culture, white symbolizes death, while red represents good luck. I'll use lots of red to transform my dining area from everyday to celebration day. You should do the same!

Here's how: start by covering the table with a red cloth. Serve the food on glossy black or silver platters and pour the ginger cocktails into classic old-fashioned glasses. Bring the rice to the table and scoop out portions from a bamboo steamer. In front of each chair, place a small tiger figurine and chopsticks. A bowl of tangerines or oranges is the perfect centerpiece. They signify luck and wealth.
