OK. It’s Day 26 of our 30 Day Countdown to Christmas and we’re officially on the last push.
Just three simple actions today to help your Christmas dinner go with a swing –
- Match your menu to your dishes – Work out which serving plate/dish you will use for each of the dishes on your menu. There’s still time to buy or borrow extras if you are short.
- Confirm who’s bringing what – You might have agreed this ages ago but the festive silly season has happened since then, so re-confirming with everyone probably makes sense.
- Give people jobs – Especially if you’re hosting a crowd, it’s only fair. Play to people’s strengths … making and serving a welcome cocktail, taking care of the music, topping up drinks, clearing the table, managing the pyrotechnics while serving the Christmas pud. There’s something for everyone. And everyone will feel properly part of the occasion too.
Done and done.
