Christmas is an important date celebrating harmony and unity, be it between family or friends. It's a time to be surrounded by the people you love, celebrate, fraternize and exchange memories and gifts. The Christmas supper, in this sense, is linked not only to this union but to sharing with the loved ones the flavors of the meals, together with the gifts and wishes of prosperity.
Celebrated even by non-Christians, this time has become a synonym for joy and collectivity. And for a special moment like this, the decor of the environment and the choice of the dishes made deserve more attention to create a perfect environment.
In today's post, let's talk a little about Christmas dinner, how to decorate the table and how to choose a perfect menu for your family, with a gallery of images to inspire you!
What can not miss in the decoration of your Christmas dinner
Fabrics: tablecloths and napkins
The tablecloths in red and green, full of Christmas ornaments in the print are true classics of family Christmas suppers. In addition to this tradition, it is possible to find towels in gold and silver as well, but if you have a more minimalist style, the light towels in light shades work very well.
Fabric napkins are usually used in more formal situations or special occasions. They bring a more elegant mood with their soft fabrics that can come in light or vibrant colors, smooth or patterned. Although Christmas dinner is the right time to take the napkins out of the closet or get yours, there are disposable paper napkins with Christmas themes that are very affordable. An option to not let go!
Crockery and cutlery
Another important point for decorating any table. At this time it is common to use those most exquisite dishes or that we keep only for special occasions. Decorations are the most successful, but plain-colored dishes are the ones that offer the greatest possibilities for composing with other elements of your table. In cutlery, the idea is the same!
Creative decoration to transform your Christmas table
To complete the table, use the creativity and create arrangements with typical Christmas with tree decorations, pine cones, colored balls and even dried fruits, nuts and fruits like grape or pomegranate. To complete the decoration, the natural plants, flowers and leaves are being used to give a final touch, bringing more freshness to the table.
This decoration for the round tables can be thought of as a central arrangement, but on rectangular tables, it is very interesting as a central band of the table that extends along its length, as in a mat.
In addition, other elements that make the table even more elegant for this celebration are sousplats and napkin rings or holders, which can be found in several models or even made at home.
Christmas supper meals
There are many typical Christmas foods that depend on the region where you live, the conditions of the year, and the culture and tradition of your family.
In the traditional Brazilian supper, each dish has a different origin, like turkey, roasted with vegetables and consumed by the Indians of all America, while the French toast came from Europe with the Portuguese. Panettone as candied fruit was elaborated in the 18th century from a traditional recipe from Milan's bakeries.
With this diversity of flavors and origins, Christmas dinner shows the variety of cultures and traditions in dishes that are prepared and served. So, create your complete Christmas dinner menu thinking not only of the typical treats of this party, but of your beloved recipes of family and friends as well as fresh foods at this time of year!
