If you’re having a party but you don’t have the time or money to splurge on expensive and time-consuming decorations, never fear! Interior Designer Nicole Gibbons is stopping by with five insanely easy and cheap ways to make your home look like a million bucks!

No. 1: Make a Show-Stopping Floral Arrangement

Our jaws are hanging open at how effortless this is. Nicole demonstrates a trick of using a vase within a vase, and some simple lemons slices, to create an amazingly elegant effect. She also uses flowers that are all the same color, which takes the pressure off having to artfully arrange your stems.

No. 2: Gild Your Champagne Bottle

Don’t throw your champagne bottle away when you’re done with it – clean it, then coat with a spray adhesive and gold glitter – instant sparkly golden bottle that you can use for decorating!

No. 3: Use Pine Cones as Display Stands

If you want to put out little signs to let your guests know what they’re dining on, just stand up an ordinary pine cone, and prob a little notecard on top! Easy peasy!

No. 4: Make Confetti Balloons

If you love the festive effect of confetti, but don’t want to clean it up, why not put it inside some balloons? Before you blow them up, just use a funnel to add confetti. That’s it!

Tip: Hang your balloons on the wall behind your buffet table for extra impact!

No. 5: Created Perfectly Fanned Out Napkins

Ever wonder how caterers get napkins to fan out in a perfect display? Nicole shows you how to do it -- and it’s way easier than you think.
