Christmas!

Post  Babymilly on Sat Sep 15, 2012 5:11 am

So, I thought it'd useful if we could share our Christmas ideas. Anything from Christmas decorations to Christmas dinner ....

That's about the same as my reply would be. I suspect we'll be at Mum's because Kirsty is back so hopefully I won't have to cook

What a disapointment you pair are. I wanted to talk about seared scallops and pea purée!!!

Suppose there's no chance of us talking about table centre pieces ???

We don't have a dining room table anymore as we had to get rid of the dining room to give Jamie a room! We do still get a table present though

Mum started it. We all got a little gift at the table. It was done a bit like a secret santa and you could only spend a fiver. Me and Adam just take it in turns to get one and don't set a budget and we get something for everyone (well I'll probably get a photobook of our wedding photos this year so it won't be for Jamie). Really its a sneaky way to get another present Laughing

Lol pea purée is very nice served with scallops and black pudding. We're not having pea purée this time though. Was hoping for ideas from here but going to sack that idea as I don't think any of you subscribe to woman's weekly were there are some lovely recipes. Lol

Tams I love the table present idea. I thought that you meant you actually presented your table with a gift ... There you go table here's a lovely new table cloth!!

Lol Pen. I bet the table would love a gift. When we do it at Mum's she has made a sleigh and all the presents go in there (we only buy small ones) and sit on the table while we're eating

I think we'll be boring and just do a chicken and a gammon joint again. Was much easier than messing around with Turkey (which either of us are fussed about). Matt does the roast cooking, I make everything else but he takes the glory of doing a perfect roast.

As for centre pieces I might actually make one with the kids. Bit of holly around a candle, nothing too fancy, i'm not that crafty

We always have a small Christmas tree in the dining room so we keep the table presents under there , we have two lots one for crimbo and one for boxing day... I usually end up the table centre piece when i fall into after too many drinks and thats just coke lol

what about eaton mess altho not sure there will be strawberrys around lol, or homemade mince pies, or cheesecake.
You can make christmas pudding and christmas cake months before christmas and add alcohol to it over the few weeks leading upto xmas. My mum use to add brandy to hers when we were young.

Was thinking about doing Xmas cake, but no one likes it, ffs so will stick to my mince pies which my dad loves

Centre pieces I have a set I use on table and last yr the kids made snowmen out of cottonwool and I printed hats and scarfs for them to stick on, they were cool :-) we used them as name plates
