Mostly somewhat lavish decorations but happy all around.  All except the last two are from Guangzhou, China.

Very similar to what we would do in Japan to put on your door (or entrance to the house) or come to think of it it's similar to a Christmas wreath.

Similar in style (but not appearance or what is used) to what we would do in Japan to put on your door (or entrance to the house) or come to think of it it’s kind of similar to a Christmas wreath.

And we do have a new year decoration that’s mochi (rice cake) + orange which I never thought had anything similar to Chinese new year decorations but that’s just ignorant me.
