How to decorate the house and the table for the year of the Rat

White and silver tinsel, snowflakes, garlands will find their place on the walls and windows of your apartment. Use metal parts, beads, rat figurines or candles. In stores, you will definitely find stencils for windows with the image of the hostess of the year.

Cover the table with a white tablecloth, metal candlesticks, white or silver candles, napkins and figurines with the image of a rat or mouse will come in handy. Crockery - white, cutlery - silver. Simple but very festive.

How to celebrate the Year of the Rat

Clothing in the New Year should be free, simple cut, modest, but with a twist. Give preference to white, gray, silver colors and shades. Metal inserts, shimmering fabrics, interesting massive brooches will make a princess out of a "gray mouse". A little black dress with a blazer with metallic details or shoes with a shimmery buckle will also work. An ordinary gray short dress can become a playful outfit if you add a headband with ears and sparkling tights to the look.

Then transfer the fried cutlets into a heat-resistant form, pour oil from the pan and bake for 12-15 minutes in the oven at a temperature of 180 degrees.

Using ketchup, raisins or peppercorns, cucumber or carrot circles, make mice. A sprig of parsley can serve as a tail. Serve with vegetables, cereals, salad, fried apples.

Break the cookies into pieces and beat with a blender into large crumbs. You can crush the cookies in a bowl with the end of a rolling pin. In another bowl, beat the butter until white with a mixer, then, continuing to beat, add the condensed milk. Get a homogeneous cream. Mix the cream with chopped nuts and cookie crumbs with a spoon. With your hands, form "cutlets" - the body and two small circles - ears. They can also be made from almond flakes.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, cover the baking sheet with parchment. From the dough, mold blanks in the shape of an oval or egg, spread on a baking sheet. Make eyes out of chocolate pieces, make a nose out of M&M's, insert half of the roasted peanuts in place of the ears. Poke a hole in the back with a wooden skewer, insert a sweet gelatin tail strip into it after baking.
