Preparing my Christmas

Well I wasn’t expecting it to be this year but the time has come. This year I will be spending Christmas at my new home with family & friends  At the age of 34, I will be cooking Christmas dinner & cakes for the first time! Hence prepping for my Christmas table. Usually I’m the helper but now I’m the hostess! (eek).

I’m not the best chef but I’ll give a good try. The fun part for me is planning my recipe decor and the dining table. And not one for Christmas cliches. I like to keep my decor understated, humble with hints of nature, raw materials and simplicity. This may not feel too Christmassy but it is a start. I’ll be looking to add a few more pieces (maybe a wreath), cake, puddings, candles and a good bottle of red wine. Then I’ll attempt the food……
