Take a look at our top tips and tricks below and make your Christmas magnifique with St Pierre.
1.Setting the table
Don’t have matching crockery? No problem, add some creative flair to your table settings by mix and matching different plates, even different napkins. It gives an individual touch to your table and gives it a rustic, homey feel.
2. Bread and wine
The French take their wine and bread more seriously than anything else. To give your table a Parisian touch, make sure everyone’s wine glass stays full and make sure there’s always bread on the table.
Why not try placing some St Pierre Soft Brioche Baguettes on each end of the table for everyone to share.
To really set the mood, a few candles go a long way. Maybe reuse some old wine bottles as chandeliers, light some tealights in clean marmalade jars or mix and match whatever candle holders you have for an eclectic but chic feel.
Think about adding extra decorative elements like a napkin and cutlery holder, and make it extra personal and elegant with some handwritten place cards and menus. We’ve created some you can download and print at home.
Make sure you celebrate your dinner by starting the evening off with some bubbly. Just clink each other’s glasses and say “Santé” to a lovely Parisian evening at home.
