It’s time to pull out the fairy lights, untangle the tinsel and start planning your Christmas festivities. If you like putting a creative touch on your family’s celebrations you don’t need to limit yourself to handmade gifts and the neighbourhood’s best-decorated tree – the Christmas lunch table can benefit as well. We love a well-glazed ham, a perfectly roasted turkey and a decadently decorated pav, but here are some ideas that will take your Christmas cooking to the next level of creativity.
Tinsel is a beautiful thing (we’d use it all year if we thought we could get away with it!) but why not add a creative touch to your tree trimming repertoire this year by making your own spiced, fruit-based garlands. You could also drape this across a mantel or down a balustrade to add some rustic flair to your festive decorating.gingerbread wreathmarshmallowsnow globesChristmas treecandle cakefruit cake
