Often there is not such a variety of festive dishes, they are not put directly on the table or next to the main dining table is an extra, with food. That is why it is possible to beautifully and brightly decorate the central compositions of the New Year's table and serve the table according to all the rules of good taste. But remember, in all important sense of proportion and style, do not put the table with toys and cones.
