Ring in the Lunar New Year with These Festive Ideas

Ready to ring in the Lunar New Year with fun and entertaining ideas? Take your Lunar New Year Celebration and spruce it up just in time for the 2017 Year of the Rooster. The long time celebrated occasion is a time to commemorate prosperity, health, and good fortune with friends and family. With so many traditional ideas, Innovate Marketing Group of Pasadena takes a modern twist to celebrate the traditional holiday. From the lion dance, tea ceremony, taiko drums, Chinese calligraphy, to rooster lantern making, these activities will sure get your guests off their feet and engaged.

The traditional lion dance brings your event to life with a bang.  Lions scale to new heights and dance their way through the crowd. As they make their way, the lions interact and welcome guests with the batting of their eyelashes. This traditional lion dance can be used for many occasions especially grand openings as it brings good luck and fortune.

A taiko drum performance will grab the attention of all your guests in a heartbeat. The exciting act consists of a dynamic style with loud, hard, fast, choreographed, and synchronized movement. This art form will leave guests mesmerized.

For a more relaxing option, guests can learn the art of tea during a traditional tea ceremony. The tea ceremony represents harmony, respect, purity, and tranquility; pair that up with a traditional Asian instrument performance and your event will truly bring the cultural aspect to life.

On to more hands-on activities, turn your guests’ names into a Chinese calligraphy work of art! A calligrapher can translate names into Chinese characters for some great memorabilia to take home. Lantern making is always a fun festive activity. Guests can create their very own rooster lantern that can be used as décor to light up any space and represent the new year!

If you are in need of ambassadors during your Lunar New Year celebration, it’s always great to enlist in the help of the Asian cultural courts with the queen and princesses dressed in traditional attire. Not only will they stand out from a crowd, but will act as great décor for your event.
