How to Host An Unforgettable Christmas Dinner

How To Host An Unforgettable Christmas Dinner: Christmas is a special time of year that brings people together to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Families gather to spend time together and reflect on what is truly important in life. Christmas dinners are one of the most significant occasions over the holiday season, and they usually involve a lot of different aspects. Here are a few tips to help you make your Christmas dinner a memorable one!

1. Music

What better way is there to create the perfect Christmas atmosphere, than with the sound of Christmas Carols. Silent night, We wish you a Merry Christmas and Santa Clause is coming to town, are just a few classic carols that will help you to set a fun and festive mood. You can’t help but get caught up in the Christmas excitement when there are carols playing!

2. The Table

Bring out the fancy glasses, special cutlery and festive table runners... Christmas is a time for celebration! Having the table set when your guests arrive will help to build great anticipation. It’s hard to go wrong with a little red, green and gold worked into the decorations for the table. Trying using a centrepiece, but just make sure there is plenty of room when the food is served!

3. Food

One of the most important elements - sharing food at Christmas has a special way of bringing people together.  A traditional Aussie Christmas includes a selection of cold meats; take your pick from ham, chicken, turkey and don’t forget some prawns, as well as fresh breads and a good range of summery salads. For desert a Trifle or Pavlova will be a certain winner and of course ice-cream and jelly for the kids.

4. Flowers

Nothing beats a little natural flair! Incorporate some greenery and fresh flowers to help brighten your dining room. Try including a few red and gold decorative pieces to create a magical and festive atmosphere.

5. Gifts

Make your friends and family feel loved and valued this Christmas by gifting your guests with a little bon bon. It doesn’t need to be very costly at all - a simple jar filled with red and green lollies will certainly be a treat!
