Rebecca says, This shoot is about creating a chic dinner party inspired by the celebration, plus some fun DIY ideas you can use for your next celebration. When taking inspiration from any annual holiday, you can incorporate both literal and symbolic details into your decor. For a modern take on the decorating, I used clusters of pomegranates and clementines for their texture and sweet smell. They are also auspicious for their colour and shape. I accented these with fresh red floral in gold vases.

A few tips:

• Red + gold are universal symbols of wealth and good fortune in Chinese culture.
• Clementines are given away and eaten as they represent abundant happiness and wealth.
• Gifts of oranges or apples are appropriate gifts if you’ve been invited to a party
CNY celebrations always involve a big feast with auspicious foods to kick off a lucky year

Take a quick trip to Chinatown the month before the celebration and you will find no shortage of themed decoration. Scour the markets for dragons symbolizing luck, firecrackers to ward off evil spirits, and red chopsticks for your feast.
