December Mood : Christmas table setting & Menu ideas


For this december mood, I wanted to share with you a table setting for special evening : Christmas, new Year’s Eve or just a special date night. For once, no shopping list because I’ve seen too many lists for one month and it’s probably too late anyway.
Instead, I have compiled my favorite Christmas menu inspirations, along with what I’m planning on making for the big day. In our family, the evening of the 24, is the time my dad and I are cooking, it is often lots of small things to nibble on then a traditional meal and fruits for dessert. I hope the recipes will inspire you !
