There are no strict restrictions on the issue of alcohol. The only point that should be followed is to remain vigilant and have a sense of proportion. If in another way - then drink in moderation.

- Treats for the patroness of the year. The main decoration of the New Year's table is, of course, the favorite treat of the dog. And what do these animals most love to feast on? That's right, under the bones, meat and giblets.
Therefore, it is necessary to take some kind of beautiful bowl, surely of a yellow color, fill it with all the above tasty items and place it in the central part of the table - at the place of honor. So you can tame the mistress of the coming year and will be with her "in good standing." Then the next 12 months will be more successful.
- Original decorations. A very stylish option - the decor of the table with the help of figures of dogs and puppies, which are made with their own hands. They can be different - fabric, wooden, foam, cardboard, cut out of colored paper or sculpted from plasticine.
Turn on your imagination at full capacity - Doggie will appreciate your ingenuity and ingenuity. Made figures should place an empty space between the plates.
- Cutlery and kitchen utensils. As mentioned in the beginning of the article, the Dog gives his preference to simplicity, chic is not his choice. Therefore, purchase wooden or earthenware. Of course, in the absence of an opportunity, it is permissible to take advantage of traditional customary dishes.
Ideally, all products will be yellow or brown, although it is allowed to dwell on classic white.
Make sure that the tablecloth also matches the color scheme of the year. Napkins can be decorated with images of dogs.
And, of course, we can not forget about the candles! Be sure to decorate the New Year's table with them. In the central part of the table, next to dog treats, it is recommended to put three tall candles (white, yellow and golden). Other candles (small in size) should be placed among the dishes. Use stylish candlesticks.
What to wear for the New Year
The first thing is to choose the most suitable color scheme, which must necessarily be maintained. The ideal solution is an outfit in which one or two colors will be the main ones, and one more - auxiliary. Shades are permissible and to combine, but then carefully make sure that it does not become too motley and devoid of taste.
The ideal colors of 2018 are all tones of yellow, sand, olive, gold, brown, coffee, ocher and khaki. From neutral colors for Dogs you can call: white, cream, dairy and a touch of champagne. But it would be better if you choose the traditional colors related to the patroness of the coming year.
An important point in choosing a dress for the New Year 2018: buy clothes that are not too bright, but more soft, muted and pastel colors. In no case should you buy vulgar clothing, therefore, under a strict ban are different deep cuts, neckline, translucent "frank" fabric. Remember that the Dog is a very reserved and chaste animal and it is better not to irritate it.
Of course, this does not mean that the tail patron of the year does not appreciate attractive things. She likes them a lot! But she focuses more on sophistication, grace and sophisticated style. Therefore, it is quite acceptable to buy a "spicy" outfit with a twist, but in any case not frank, vulgar or making any hints of sex.
In matters of decoration, also be modest. Under the ban are diamonds, you remember that the dog does not like the frankness and pretentiousness. It is permissible to buy elegant jewelry in harmony with the basic style of clothing.
Note! If there are any family jewels in your family's piggy bank, you don’t need to turn out to be from them, on the contrary, be sure to put them on New Year's Eve.
It is great if you decorate your outfit with different fur details. For example, it is recommended to attach fur strips to the cuffs, collar and hem of clothing.
