Put a delicious Christmas dinner on the table!

Written by Annette O'Shea On

Pull out all the stops for Christmas dinner this winter. We're leaving the whole 'less is more' belief behind us, because we're making it the Christmasiest Christmas we've ever had. Green, red, conviviality, food and drinks in abundance and the most beautiful materials. This way you can enjoy the biggest meal of the season even more!

A grand Christmas dinner!


Christmas dinner is perhaps the most important moment of the Christmas holidays! The whole family comes together for this special moment. Chairs are brought from everywhere in the house to the dining table to create a place for that family member who also spontaneously decides to join us. The more the merrier is a cliché that hides a lot of truth! The house is beautifully decorated with traditional Christmas decorations in warm red and green tones, the fireplace crackles merrily and the most delicious scents waft from the kitchen on a stream of drafts that arise every now and then when the doors are opened.

Preparing Christmas dinner


Putting together a successful Christmas dinner requires a lot of careful preparation and last minute shopping in the supermarket for the last ingredients for the Christmas dinner has become a true top sport. People crowd each other at the shelves to grab that last pack of icing sugar or just miss the empty meringue shelf. At the butcher there is a line that extends to the street and the ordered bare turkeys and hams fly over the counters. What a wonderful peace of mind when you have purchased all the non-perishable products for Christmas dinner weeks in advance and ordered that delicious turkey as the main course for Christmas dinner from the butcher a month ago. And if all the fresh milk for Christmas dinner dessert has already been sold out, no one will taste it if you use long-life milk.

The star of the Christmas dinner


Those few kilos of turkey and ham have to be in the oven or in the pan for half a day. In the middle of the night the oven is turned on, the turkey is nicely greased and wrapped with aluminum foil and goes to sleep in the wonderfully heated oven. Preparing the dishes for Christmas dinner is night work, especially when you have to cook for a large group of people. Abroad, a turkey is a typical main course for Christmas dinner, but in the Netherlands we are increasingly seeing easy variants such as a roast chicken, pork tenderloin or a small ham. Every few hours the alarm goes off to quickly jump out of bed, speak sweetly to the roasting turkey and shower it with hot fat. Of course, it must remain nice and tender.

Beloved vegetables for Christmas dinner


Christmas morning has arrived and the kitchen is a hot spot of comings and goings. While the guest of honor for the Christmas dinner is already in the oven and the potatoes are already being thrown into the pan, a Christmas breakfast is also quickly put on the table. While everyone is kicked out of the kitchen with a full belly, space is cleared to prepare Christmas dinner. Now the real work begins. A very traditional vegetable that should not be missing from your Christmas dinner are Brussels sprouts. In some countries, on Christmas Day, a whole string of sprouts is given as a gift to the person who prepares Christmas dinner that year. In addition to the Brussels sprouts, don't forget the winter carrots, red onion, celery and parsnips. Just cut, cook, stew or grill! That will be a delicious Christmas dinner.

Dress up the Christmas dinner


When the potatoes are baking in the oven and the vegetables are in the pan, it is a great time to decorate the dining table for Christmas dinner. A beautiful decoration stimulates the senses, making the food taste even better and the table guests enjoy each other's company even more. At such an extensive Christmas dinner you want to have everything on the table, so that as a host or hostess you do not have to constantly get up from your own place to grab something from the kitchen. Before you know it, your own Christmas dinner will be ruined while everyone is enjoying it. Therefore, check in advance whether you have a nice, extensive tableware set that puts everything you need within reach.

Ideal tableware for Christmas dinner


The ideal tableware for Christmas dinner consists of extra large dinner plates, so that there is extra space to serve the various Christmas dishes. It's a shame if the delicious roasted potatoes become wet and soggy because they are half in the sauce or meat gravy and you also want to prevent any cooking liquid from the vegetables from seeping into the slowly cooked meat. A spacious dinner plate is therefore an absolute must for Christmas dinner. In addition, it is also useful to have several smaller plates ready for small side dishes and snacks that complete the Christmas dinner, such as small sandwiches in the shape of a Christmas tree or slices of butter. Bowls and bowls in different sizes are also useful, for example to serve sauces and dips or a delicious starter such as parsnip soup. With a large serving bowl you can serve the meat or roasted potatoes beautifully and with the dessert of the Christmas dinner you can serve the most delicious coffee from a beautiful mug with a matching saucer for some small cookies. Or opt for wine glasses with a well-stocked cheese board.

Set the dining table for Christmas dinner!


When the turkey is removed from the oven, it continues to cook for a while under the foil. Then cut it into nice slices and place it on the Delft blue serving dish. Lure guests to the dining table with a delicious prosecco served in matching glasses with a blue ombre effect in the glass. Start the Christmas dinner with a moment of reflection and gratitude and toast each other to a wonderful Christmas. Then it's finally time to put Christmas dinner on the table! Add some nice Christmas decorations here and there to the meal, such as a sprig of thyme, a few red cranberries, cinnamon sticks and nice poinsettias made from cucumber.

Ending the Christmas dinner


Of course, a Christmas dinner is only complete when it ends with a delicious dessert. For lovers of savory dishes, this could be a well-stocked cheese board with red wine, port or a tasty liqueur. If you are more of a sweet lover, it is wonderful to enjoy ice cream, chocolate or pudding after a rich Christmas dinner. There are many ready-made Christmas-themed ice cream cakes available in supermarkets around Christmas, which makes preparing a Christmas dinner a lot easier and less time-consuming. But if you still have the courage to get back into the kitchen, it's fun to prepare something yourself. A beautiful Christmas pudding, for example, is a wonderful end to a successful Christmas dinner. Serve with nice hot coffee or tea and enjoy an exuberant food feast for a few hours.

Fun Christmas dinner games


To make the Christmas dinner complete, games are of course also played at the dining table. The ideal games during the Christmas dinner are small, short games that require few materials. The Christmas crackers are therefore ideal. Place a festive Christmas cracker on each plate and between each course of the Christmas dinner, two people open such a Christmas cracker. It usually contains a small gift, a paper party hat and a fun guessing game. This makes for a nice change and brings a lot of laughter and cheerfulness to the table. Other fun Christmas dinner games are Who Am I?, Twenty Questions, Forbidden Word and Pictionary.

Relax after Christmas dinner


Has everyone finished eating and is the food almost coming out of their ears? Then it's time to wrap the leftovers from Christmas dinner well and put them in the refrigerator, because someone is guaranteed to be looking for a roast chicken leg in an hour. And the slices of turkey still taste delicious on Boxing Day on some white bread with mustard. Now it's time to relax and watch television from your lazy couch with your legs up. There are plenty of nice Christmas films and Christmas shows to relax after the lavish Christmas dinner.
