Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. But all of a sudden, out of nowhere, you came running, shouting, ‘Oh no, I have a dinner to prepare!’.
Everyone has been there, running around frantically trying to get the turkey ready, the potatoes roasted and gravy stirred all before Christmas day. It can be quite stressful, organising the dinner, getting everyone together and hoping that everything is cooked.
This Christmas, World Kitchen are here to help with our 4 top tips for the perfect Christmas Dinner:
Setting the table might seem like a lot of work but there are actually a lot of benefits. It will make you feel extra Christmassy, distract your guests from the kitchen and add a bit of glamour to the Christmas dinner.
There are a range of different things you can try. From colourful flowers, to tinsel, candles and even glitter. This will add sparkle, colour and warmth to your table.
This might sound daunting, and more stressful but sometimes trying a new recipe can help alleviate some stress from the day. Try a different way of cooking your turkey, ham or nut roast. Add spices you haven’t used before, try different cooking methods and see how great changing up your traditional dinner can be.
You can even get the kids involved baking biscuits, decorating the cake and making other treats.
And if it all goes wrong, you don’t have to blame yourself, you can blame the recipe instead.
You might be used to cooking your food in certain trays and roasting dishes then seeing your food stick to the bottom, seep through the sides and end up ruining the dinner.
One of the best ways to make sure that you dinner is a success is to cook and serve your food in Corelle dinnerware and their bake serve and store range.
With Corelle dinnerware, you can rest assured that their chip and break resistant pieces mean that even if drunk Uncle Jim manages to drop his plate on the floor, it shouldn’t be too much of a disaster.

It might take you hours to complete them, bring out the competitive flare in everyone and end up with you losing, but board games are fantastic for Christmas day. Whilst the dinner is being cooked, during dessert or after, they keep the kids away from the television and get all the family talking together.
