Chinese New Year is just a month away and I'm super excited to welcome it because this marks as a new year for me and my family and I have pretty exciting plans for this year. It is also time to get my house ready for this festive season and deck it with traditional Chinese New Year decorations to welcome my family and friends when they visit.

Here are some of my favorite Chinese New Year decorative items which I find essential for this auspicious theme, I've shortlisted them from one of my favorite shopping sites - Taobao to help me with my Chinese New Year decorations.

1. Chun Lian //

Hang these Chinese couplets outside your house on the front entrance is a great way to start. These couplets have four characters written on them, it contains good wishes for a prosperous new year or words that relate to spring and wealth.

2. Lanterns //

Another important element that represents Chinese New Year are lanterns. Purchase it in a pair and hang them above your door, it is believed it could drive away bad luck and bad spirits off your house.

3. Red Packets //

Aren't these beautiful? It is a tradition to give out red packets during Chinese New Year to children or those who are not married in hope of passing on a year of good fortune and blessings.  

4. Red Paper Cutouts //

Red Paper Cutouts are often used for decorations, these intricately cut papers often bear auspicious words. The paper cuttings will be put up on walls or mirror to highlight the color. Apart from auspicious characters, these paper cutouts sometimes feature flowers and the zodiac animal for the year. 

5. Ru Yi Knots //

One of my favorites is the Ru Yi Knots, these knots of happiness are the eternity symbol of figure eight. Hang one in your living room as it represents longevity and protection against bad luck. 

With all these items prepared I am all set to decorate my home for Chinese New Year
