CHRISTMAS WITH FRIENDS | MY FIRST CHRISTMAS DINNER

December 26, 2017

MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL! 

I’m typing this with my feet up having spent half of the day in the kitchen and the other stuffing my face uncontrollably. I’m content knowing that there is food for the next two days and therefore can fully reside to doing nothing and focus instead on sharing want I’ve learnt from the past week from hosting my first dinner party to surviving Christmas day. I’d say this year was perhaps one of the most relaxing Christmas’s despite not being with the whole fam. The day was spent lounging around, face-timing my parents, cooking, eating, debating and playing board games with my siblings.

I recently hosted my very first Christmas dinner with my BFF’s! It was a night of good food and lot’s of laughs, with bubbly flowing, Michael Buble playing in the background and lot’s of chatter. As i’ve always wanted to host a dinner and it being Christmas I thought it would be the perfect reason to do so.

How did I do it?

Planning…

Firstly the theme, which was white and gold. I used Pintrest and Instagram for Christmas inspiration ideas.

The Menu – Traditional roast with a West African twist. So that was suya spiced turkey  with roast potatoes, jollof rice, Mac n Cheese and fried sweet plantains.

All Christmas table items were from H&M Home (a must visit if you haven’t).

I had so much fun planning and putting this together and look forward to more dinner parties. In my next post I’ll be sharing what I made for our Christmas Meal.

xoxo
