It’s beginning to look a lot like… Christmas Eve dinner parties, red-ribbon wrapped presents and reindeer-themed sweaters in cheesy family pictures.
Yep, it’s Christmas time, once again! But for this special occasion, home catering won’t do it, because it’s now all about home-made roasted turkeys, pumpkin pies and bacon-wrapped pork loin with cherries (this sounds so fancy but it’s actually pretty easy and definitely to-die-for, get it here and stop complaining) ! It’s about putting Frank Sinatra on home surround, and lightning cinnamon candles all around the house – out of children’s reach that is- and doing everything yourself! Including the Christmas Eve dinner you will be definitely hosting, where all your dear ones will join and have a nice warm time.
As for any great host, great design is imperative, and a nice festive table setting will put everyone in Christmas mood and Instagram-ing mood for sure ;)! Here are some be-autiful table designs for you to get some inspiration for next weekend:
