If flowering plants isn’t your thing, consider a small citrus tree. A tangerine or kumquat tree, filled with fruit and decorated with red ribbons, welcomes a year of growing wealth and prosperity.
A final option, a bowl of fresh fruit displayed in your kitchen or living room, is the easiest decoration of all. Oranges (with their green leaves still attached) symbolize prosperity, while peaches stand for longevity.
Taken together, Chinese New Year decorations complement the cooking and cleaning activities that occur prior to the holiday. Freshly scrubbed and with a full cupboard, your decorated home will be ready to welcome the new year.
