Merrytime Madness: An innovative setup for Christmas dinner
DEC 18, 2015 | By Tasneem Merchant
As the year comes to an end, it ushers in a frenzy of decorating, shopping and a laundry list of things to do. Let us be your Santa’s elves and help you set up a dinner that will save you enough time to go carol singing with your near and dear ones.
1. Novel-ty Items: Bring your books to the table for this one. Join identical, colourful publications with glossy covers to make a centre runner. If you can’t find any that have the same colour, wrap them up with shiny red gift paper for uniformity.
2. Being Grate-ful: Create unconventional mood lighting. Upcycle vegetable graters into stylish candle holders and elevate on a cake stand. The best part? The light pouring out of the holes creates adequate drama to get pride of place as a creative centrepiece.
3. Timber Talk: Get innovative in service. Turn wooden serving boards into funky placemats. Let the Christmas make you feel creative – paint the board in green and red with a tidy little bow on top.
