Hosting the Perfect Christmas Dinner Party
Host The Perfect Party This Christmas With Our Top Tips
It’s December and that can mean only one thing…..Christmas is coming and the turkey is getting fat! It’s also the perfect time of year to invite family and friends over for a Christmas dinner party to enjoy good company and some tasty Christmas recipes.
Whilst the food may be the star of any dinner party at Christmas, why not start by impressing your guests with a beautifully laid table. We love the bright crimson red Peggy Wilkins Sparkly Snowflakes tablecloth (starting at £15.00) and available in three sizes to suit your table. There’s also a matching set of 4 napkins by Peggy Wilkins (£11.99) to complete the Christmas ensemble. If red is not your colour these gorgeous tablecloths are also available in silver, gold and champagne for a chic or sophisticated look.
Christmas isn’t Christmas without candles and scented candles will really set the scene when guests come into your home. Try these Wax Lyrical Christmas Candle Tins available in three seasonal fragrances; Golden Sandalwood, Vanilla & Cranberry and Winter Walks. At only £4.99 with 35 hours burn time, they may be small but they pack a big Christmas punch.
The icing on your dining table is the dinnerware, so why not treat yourself as well as your guests this Christmas with a timeless and elegant dinner set. This 16 Piece Denby Monsoon Lucille Gold Dinnerware (£98.40) is simply stunning with a 1950’s lace design, a worthwhile investment for years to come.
Make like the Christmas classic and get some chestnuts roasting over an open fire with this Eddingtons Chestnut Roaster (only £5.99). Entice your friends with the aroma of hot roasting chestnuts and serve them with a Christmas cocktail before dinner. It’s also suitable for use on gas and electric hobs if you don’t have an open fire.
Whilst we're on the subject of cocktails, add a splash of fun to that Christmas punch with the Bar Craft Christmas Silicone Ice Cube Tray! At only £7.99, you can make festive Christmas ice cubes including Christmas trees, snowmen and Christmas stockings. It will be loved by adults and children for many Christmases to come!
If a cake is on your Christmas menu, how about trying this fabulous non-stick Christmas Tree Cake Tin (£3.99)? It’s sure to delight your family. Let your Christmas imagination run free when it comes to decorating it!
After all the festive food, it’s good to sit down, relax and finish your Christmas dinner party in style with coffee and mince pies. Want to make your home made mince pies even more special? These Eddingtons Mince Pie Toppers Mini Cutters (£1.99) will have the party all wrapped up nicely. You can also use them for Christmas cookies and the kids will love them too, with three designs; Christmas tree, star and holly leaf.
We hope that we’ve given you some ideas to make your Christmas dinner party go with a bang this year.
May we wish all our customers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!comments powered by Disqus
