Christmas can be a very stressful time of year, which is why it’s a wise idea to plan ahead.

One of the biggest and most important elements of a truly great Christmas celebration is of course the Christmas dinner, and in today’s blog we’re going to talk about dressing your table for what is perhaps the most important family meal of the year.

First things first, you’re going to need to know how much room is available, so make a list of all the dishes you will be cooking.

After this, place all the plates, cutlery, glasses and serving plates you will be using on the table, plus the tablemats, candles, gravy boats and any other items that will be kept on the table during dinner.

Once this is done you can start thinking about who’s going to sit where, what colours you’re going to use and the decorative items you want to include.

For a super simple yet wholly festive table dressing, we recommend the below, our Christmas Magazine 2017 which launches this weekend.:
