Create a Christmas Feast
Set the mood with a beautifully decorated dining table this Christmas.
Make one big starter and dessert and let people help themselves!
No Christmas setting is complete without a touch of glimmering gold – add this colour for instantly luxurious look!
It sounds silly but have a rummage to see what you actually have in the house and then write a shopping list – that way you won’t miss a thing!
Fail to prepare...
Do as much as you can in advance, make your starter and dessert the day before. You can even pre-peel vegetables in advance.
Red is basically the colour of Christmas, and of course, love! So inject a little love into your Christmas dinner by staying traditional.
Write a list
If you note down everything you need to do and how long each item takes to cook you can plan out what to cook when.
Put your freezer to good use this festive season, you can freeze sticky toffee pudding (thanks Delia!) mince pies, soup, etc a few weeks in advance.
