HANG THE HOLLY Whether it’s an elaborate centre-piece, a boldly decorated tree or just busting out the special occasion glassware, it’s time to deck the halls.

A FESTIVE SEASON TO REMEMBER Christmas is the perfect excuse to revamp your decor and add that festive touch. December is the time to throw the minimalism trend out the window, and decorate. Turning your home into a welcoming wonderland doesn’t have to come with an exorbitant price tag. Adding mood lighting with candles or a gorgeous centre-piece to the dining table are the best way to get started. Spread hanging decorations throughout your entire home, and dress the tree from top to bottom in your favourite baubles. Spread the joy throughout the family, with a home fit for Mr & Mrs Claus themselves.

CHRISTMAS RECIPE IDEAS

DRESS IT UP: THE PERFECT PAIRING TO FRESH LEMON AND HERB PRAWNS IS THIS CREAMY BALSAMIC DRESSING.

Prawn Perfection INGREDIENTS 4 tbsp olive oil

SAUCE:

4 tbsp lemon juice

3 tbsp olive oil

3 tbsp chopped parsley from Trims Fresh

3 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp Dijon mustard

Black peppercorns from Green Valley Spices to taste

1 tsp brown sugar

700g ZAG Seafood uncooked king tiger prawns

2 cloves garlic, crushed

salt and pepper to taste

METHOD In a bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic and pepper. Add prawns and coat them in the mixture. Let them marinate for a half hour in the fridge. Place marinated prawns on a hot grill, spread evenly apart. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side. For the sauce, combine all ingredients bar salt and pepper in a blender, or use an immersion blender, and blend until thick and creamy. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

The Ultimate Spread When it comes to Christmas day feasts, every member of the family has their own favourites. Sitting around the table laughing, reminiscing and eating until you’re full is what Christmas is all about. Fill your spread with meats and treats without spending all day slaving away over a hot oven. Red Lea Chickens, Rozzi’s Italian Canteen and Jia Yuan Supermarket will ensure your main course is sorted without a fuss. For irresistible after lunch sweetness, Sergio’s Cake Shop has you covered with freshly baked cakes and tarts. For something a little on the colder side, try the ice-cream cakes from Sweet Treat. After all, it’s the time with family that really counts at Christmas.
