Tips for choosing tablecloths and napkins. Photo Samples
When choosing a tablecloth and other textiles, rely, first of all, on the style that is selected. So, if you bet on the popular Russian version, then look for panels of the corresponding design: bright, decorated with various patterns, with delicate ornaments. Most often they are immediately sold complete with napkins. Western style is characterized by minimalism. Choose a discreet tablecloth, possibly with inscriptions in English, or stylized in such a fashionable direction as Provence. This is a cute flower drawing on a white background, and lace, and natural fabrics.
You will never miss if you select a white tablecloth. It is appropriate for any holiday. If the impracticality of white stops you from such a purchase, then the way out can be found in the so-called “tracks”. These are narrow runners that cover over the main tablecloth, located in the center, on the sides, across, etc. Against this background, almost any dishes look advantageous.
Napkins are appropriate, both textile and paper, both the same with a tablecloth, and others, but always in the same style. If you choose bright dishes and no less noticeable decorative elements, then napkins are best chosen in a restrained color scheme, so that it is not too variegated and too pompous. Paper products are folded into napkin holders, while tissue products are fastened with clamps and placed either on a plate or near.

Cutlery. How to arrange, where to place

For a home celebration, put the knife and spoon to the right of the plate, and the forks for salads and the main dish on the left. If dessert is provided, then put a spoon for it on top.

Cut greens, for example, dill, it has twigs with thin "needles", which is just what is needed. A star on top of the head will not be difficult to cut out of carrots or red bell peppers. Create balls from pomegranate seeds, lay the garland out of thin and long strips of Korean carrots.

- pomegranate seeds;
- small mushrooms.

- candles in transparent cups with small beads for fixing in a vessel;
- Christmas toys, cones, nuts;
- gingerbread houses.
2020 trends. Fashionable directions in serving
For many years in our country it has been fashionable to set the table in accordance with some style. Popular styles such as rustic, Scandinavian, Japanese and some others. If the direction is decided, then do not forget that its characteristic features should be repeated when decorating the room in which the celebration will be held. Consider the most interesting styles.
The main attribute of the new year remains in its place, in the center of the largest room, and all because in the old days in Russia spruce scared away evil spirits. Position the tree near the table, but so that its branches do not bother celebrating people with their needles.
The approximate distance from the spruce to the chairs should be at least 1 meter.
The tablecloth is preferred from natural fabrics, soft. If you want more similarities with the Russian village, then refuse textiles altogether, but in this case the table should be made of wood, not MDF. Choose dishes, ideally if it is clay, but it does not matter if there is only a good imitation. The symbol of the year cannot be what the eastern calendar tells us to do, so bake the cookie figures of ordinary animals that have been living with us since ancient times and decorate the table with them.
There are many variations of this style, but the most likely bright and close to our concept of the holiday is a positive country. Use for its recreation juicy colors of red and green, combine with white. For example, choose a tablecloth with a picture of green branches of spruce and red balls, or birds, but the background may be white. For such textiles, select dishes monochrome, preferably white. If, on the contrary, it is decided to cover the tablecloth with white, then serve the table with plates with a pattern. As decorative elements, place candy canes or winter berries near each guest. In the center you can place candles. Choose the simplest and even rude ones to match the style of the American village.
Feng Shui table setting
In the center of the table should be placed the most favorite dish, but not the owners of the house or guests, but the symbol of the year, and the dishes for him should choose elegant, for example, a wide vase with a thin leg. Place the table itself in the center of the room, cover it with a tablecloth, and lay an oval or round runner on top, so you will fulfill the indispensable conditions of oriental teaching - no sharp corners. So that friendship and understanding reign in the family, pick up wooden dishes for serving. This material symbolizes such a necessary unity. If possible, then put spoons for salads also wooden, and put the plates on the same stands. Citrus fruits beloved by all work like a magnet for gold, so find a place for them, and it’s not at all necessary to put them in a vase, put it wherever there is free space.
Year of the Rat. Decor Features
The rat is a lover of gnawing different goodies. It is worth paying a little attention to this addiction of the mistress of the year, for example, put on a table a vase with dried fruits, nuts, cinnamon sticks, spikelets of wheat.
The little house rat takes care of his home, gently nests a hole in the hole and will respect everyone who treats the table with the same scrupulousness. Try not to overload it with excess decor and extra plates and think over every little thing. If possible, make several decor elements yourself, for example, bake and decorate with the glaze of gingerbread men, paint the cones with shiny paint or make candlesticks made of fruits.
