How to celebrate the New 2016
2016 - the year of what animal
The coming 2016 has been declared the year of the Red Fire Monkey. The Mistress of the Year is agile and eccentric, curious and lightning-fast in making decisions, easily offended, but also quickly forgiving wrongs inflicted not from malice. Considering that the future Monkey is not simple, but Fiery, all its characteristics should be multiplied by at least two, and wait for a very dynamic year.
Legends are formed about the Monkey's ability to find unusual sources of income and transfer them to the category of permanent ones, about her unprecedented intuition and extreme caution. According to all forecasts, the year will be filled with a wide variety of events, unstable, but certainly not boring!
Therefore, one should not be surprised that the rhythm of our life will accelerate, many plans will not be fulfilled, but things, nevertheless, will go uphill, sometimes in very unexpected ways. The main thing in the year of the Monkey is to understand in time that fate gives a chance and not to miss it. After all, the Red Monkey does not like fatalists floating with the flow, she will be supportive of creative and thinking people who gush with creative ideas and are not afraid to work hard to achieve the goal.
Where to celebrate the New 2016
The Year of the Red Fire Monkey can be met absolutely anywhere - at home, outdoors, on a hike, in a restaurant, in a country house or on exotic islands. In this case, the place of the holiday is not so important as its atmosphere. Unrestrained fun, noisy crowded feast, interesting games, incendiary dances to rhythmic music, song competitions - but you never know what else your fantasy will tell you? For the Monkey, noise and fuss are familiar, it will remain enough if everything at the holiday is too much, but this in no way means that you need to cross the boundaries of decency, the Monkey, although a slightly eccentric person, is very respectable.
How to decorate your home for the New Year 2016
In the matter of decorating an apartment, and especially a country house, you need to take into account the main character traits of the Monkey - mobility and love of bright colors. The more long garlands the better! They can be homemade from paper or tinsel, as well as ready-made - in the form of fir branches. Transform your home into a jungle, where the Monkey can climb the vines, jumping from one to another.
The Christmas tree can be one large, or several small ones, even bouquets of spruce branches will truly delight the restless Monkey. Decorate the tree brightly and brilliantly, with more garlands and tinsel. You can make window sills, shelves or even the floor (if there are no small children and animals) with garlands with multi-colored lamps, candles and lamps. A live fire in the fireplace will be an excellent decoration and a symbol of the coming year.
The color palette of decorations for the New Year 2016 should be in the colors of Fire - this very element will rule the coming year. That is, all shades of red, orange, gold, saturated purple and bright yellow are permissible. The taboo is imposed only on black, gray and dark brown colors, with which the Monkey can get bored and despondent, which is categorically contraindicated not only at the holiday, but also in later life.
What to wear for the New 2016
What is the noisiest holiday that comes to mind when you mention the New Year? That's right, carnival !! This is exactly what the Fire Monkey needs. Therefore, when choosing a dress for the celebration, pay attention to bright and spectacular dresses. For the happy owners of slender legs, the most daring mini is recommended; if possible, ladies can bare their shoulders and backs when they choose floor-length dresses. Intense wine and reds, mystical purple, bright coral - all shades of flame are welcome. A laconic dress must be complemented with an original accessory or bright trim, you can use fur with long pile, lurex and sequins. All kinds of scarves and stoles made of weightless organza or chiffon will come in handy, as well as a little pretentious headdresses - with feathers or a veil.
Special attention should be paid to decorations on New Year's Eve, because the very case has come when you can and should "walk" the inherited wealth. Necklaces and earrings with natural stones, graceful tiaras - feel free to put on all this, as well as rings and bracelets made of natural materials, with precious or semi-precious stones. Of course, the exquisite brilliance of diamonds is always magnificent, but you can choose more democratic options in order to be "in all its glitter".
For men, the most suitable option is a suit of a classic dark color with a suitable shirt, but a tie, bow tie or scarf can be of a bright color or with an unusual ornament. A tuxedo is perfect for going out.
What to give for the New 2016
Choosing gifts for the New Year is a pleasant annual ritual, everyone approaches it in their own way. Someone has been looking for souvenirs all the previous year or bringing them from trips, while others have managed to find something pleasant for loved ones in recent days. Gifts in the form of the patron saint of the New Year have become traditional. In this case, it is preferable to purchase Monkey figurines made of natural materials - wood, leather, semi-precious stones, etc.
It is better to refuse from "useful" and "practical" gifts in favor of original in form and unusual gifts. Even if it is a photo album, then let it be in the form of a family tree or a puzzle, which will fit all the photos of your summer vacation.
New Year's table for 2016
Serving the table for the New Year's holiday is a separate pleasure, and by calling the children for help, you can turn it into an unforgettable time and make it a family tradition. To celebrate the year of the Red Fire Monkey, we take out of the chests not only decorations, but also dishes with cutlery. Choosing massive plates or a sophisticated porcelain service is a matter of taste, you need to set the table with soul and imagination! Beat the napkin rings, build coasters for glasses and glasses, decorate the table with a composition of cones, flowers and candles - fantasize!
Be sure to put a large vase or basket of fruit on the table; there should be nuts and dried fruits on the table, lots of greens and fresh vegetables. The monkey will be delighted with richly decorated dishes, unusual tastes and unconventional presentation of well-known dishes. Be sure to prepare an exquisite dessert, better - with an abundance of fruits and berries.
Of course, there should be champagne on the table - in tall thin glasses or bowls. Strong elite alcoholic drinks - whiskey or cognac “with history” will help to complement the aesthetics of the New Year's table, serve your favorite liqueurs for dessert.
