Top tips to utilise your dining table this Christmas

“Tis the season to be jolly” and here are my top tips to make the most out of your dining table this Christmas, bringing friends and family together to enjoy the festive season.

· If you haven’t already, invest in a quality hardwearing table which will not only stand the test of time but also lend itself to a range of lifestyle needs – try an extendable table for flexibility

· Use the table space to prepare for your Christmas by wrapping up presents and spend a relaxing afternoon writing all your Christmas cards

· Now you have a table to accommodate the whole family offer to take on the Christmas feast this year and give mum a rest.

Beautifully decorate the table with personalised name cards and a fresh flower centre piece adding a warm festive feel to the room

· Take time to gather the family round for meal times at least three times a week and enjoy quality time together

· Invite your friend’s rounds for some festive fun and host a quiz around the table. It’s a cheap alternative to going out and will be a fun way to spend together in a hectic season

· Make time for partners, as at Christmas time it’s easy to forget romance. Cook your favourite meal, light some candles and talk about your treasured Christmas memories

· Fill the season with fun by using your dining table as a place for inspiration, creation and enjoyment. Use the space to make Christmas decorations with the kids, play board games or write a letter to Santa

· Go all Bridget Jones and invite everyone round for a post Christmas gathering and host a ‘turkey curry buffet’

· Top the season off by holding a night to remember on New Years Eve. Make a statement with a champagne reception and hire a personal chef to cook an elegant five course meal for you and your friends
