There are places which are warmer during this time of the year. For that the rules or rather the ideas for the types of decorations do not change, only the flowers do. Any flower that blooms in this season and that is available can be used for New Year's eve. It can be sunflowers put in elegant looking vintage flower vases or it can be the rose petals in water with floating candles. It can also be lilies or carnations or Daphnes in tiny glass bottles. There are no rules and there are no limitations to the use of flowers. Flowers have acted the linkages between the times gone by and the time to come. They have been used by generations for the very same purposes. That is all what matters and what counts. It is the time to let loose. Time to gather up with the ones who matter. New year's eve is all about everything being beautiful.
