Features table setting for the year of the Pig
Earthen Pig likes yellow color, so it is recommended to use it as a basis for decorating an apartment and a festive table. The most winning - gold shades. However, this does not mean that there should be precious metal instruments on the table.
To show taste or restraint, use a snow-white tablecloth decorated with a gold, unobtrusive pattern. Golden shades are ideally combined with white, but are not friendly with silver and gray tones, which spoil the effect of solemnity. Be sure to consider this.
The symbol of the year is quite pedantic, it likes planning, therefore, in addition to the menu, think over the characteristics of serving.
- Start with a new tablecloth. It is better to choose a tablecloth of yellow color from natural material. You can also stop the choice on pastel shades.
- Prepare small portions, but provide variety.
- Salads and snacks can not be applied to individual dishes, and put everything on one large flat dish.
- Decorate the table with voluminous Christmas paraphernalia: spruce cones, branches. Napkins can give the original form.
- Do not forget about the candles that will add comfort to the evening.
REMEMBER! On the festive table in 2019, any kind of dishes is appropriate, but the products of bright yellow or muted brown shades deserve the most attention. The best option - white plates with a gold border.
Napkins should be in harmony with the tablecloth or set. Golden candlesticks on the table will highlight the beauty of the New Year's table. Together with aromatic candles, they fill the interior with pleasant aromas and provide romantic lighting.
In conclusion, I will share useful tips. To satisfy the patroness of the year, everyone should be pleased with the triumph.
- Make every effort to make the holiday celebration interesting and fun. This effect can be achieved in a small company of loved ones. A good help in achieving the goal will be sincere conversations, funny games and jokes, tasty snacks.
- Give the attention and hospitality of each guest. Since the patroness of the year is not picky, for the display of attention rather modest gifts in bright packaging.
- The secret of a successful New Year's table is in simplicity and satiety. Do not cook a lot of delicacies. The main thing is to not disturb the dishes to keep the spirit of the holiday. Cut meats, vegetables, bakery products and fruits will help.
- Make sure that the house is dominated by comfort, complemented by warmth and beauty. It is not necessary to decorate the room and set the table. The main thing is that you want to stay indoors longer.
I do not advise to make cold cuts of pork. It is inappropriate on the table as well as hot dogs, shawarma, and other representatives of fast food. In the list of undesirable drinks - lemonade, brew, beer.
I hope, thanks to my recommendations, you will cheerfully and tasty meet the New Year 2019 and enlist the support of the Earth Pig. Good luck!
