Posted by Jean from Spaceship on Jan 22, 2018 5:50:34 PM

As the year of the dog approaches this lunar new year, families are spending every weekend cleaning up their homes before putting up the CNY decorations. The year of the dog is special compared to the rest of Chinese zodiac symbols as it subjectively is one of the cutest animals of the zodiac cycle. In additional, it is known universally that dogs are man's best friend. This lunar new year is a celebration of both man and pet. 

While we were sourcing for CNY decoration for our office online, we decided to compile some of the cutest ones that incorporates a dog. 

5 CNY Decoration for the Year of the Dog

1. Dog Plushie with Fortune Plant for Good Luck 

This 30cm plushie immediately caught our eye! It comes in two different designs. You can choose between the mandarin tree or the cherry blossom plant. Unfortunately, you will not be able to choose the design of the dog that will be delivered to you. We love this because it is semi reusable. To use it next year, you just have to yank out the dog soft toy (make it into a key chain to not waste it) and replace it with a new plushie. Plushies are great for home decorations as it is children friendly

2. "Duilian" For your Door

duilian dog cny decor "Duilian"s (for lack of a better word) are matching posters that usually carries half a sentence on each side. According to Wiki, they are couplets in Chinese poetry. If you are not keen on squeezing for a good deal in Chinatown, you can opt for the delivery option. Registered local mail takes about 2 days after your sender has posted your order. This saves you the hassle and time to spruce up your home for the festive period. This set of duilian are light and durable as it is made of felt, unlike the usual paper ones which can tear easily if the party gets too rowdy. It is usually placed near the entrance of a home, but you can also stick them on your door.
