Keep Calm it's only Christmas!


So are you enjoying the Christmas spirit? 
Or are you stressing out with the thought of everything that still has to be done?!

I feel quite calm as all the presents are done but my stress will probably begin on Christmas Eve as I set the table for Christmas Day and try to do as much food prep as I can so I am not running around madly on the day.

Everyone is bringing something for lunch but mostly cold things eg either a salad, fruit platter or a dessert. My problem is trying to co-ordinate all the hot things to be ready on time. Think turkey, roast vegies etc. I had an issue one year where my roast potatoes just wouldn't cook! I think I had too many things shoved into the oven!

These are the times I wish I had a huge double oven and a massive fridge!

I think I will get started on this dessert a few days before Christmas. It's always a favourite and something I only make at Christmas :)

Also randomly I am pondering over which paper to use as place cards. It's the little things people! ;)

So are you stressed out yet?! 
I know it is such a lot of work and thought for one day but I wouldn't have it any other way!

  1. No stress at the moment, but cheated a bit today and ordered 2 rolled stuffed turkey breast, 1 pre cooked and that way I only have to cook one...1/2 the stress on the day :)

  2. I find Christmas quite stressful all round actually... but that's not to say I don't enjoy it! Strange, but true.
    Thankfully I don't have the pressure of hosting, so for me it's just organising myself to get my plates prepared AND the giant pile of gift wrapping, eek!
    I often wish I had a huge oven and fridge also... for all the special occasions. You sound pretty organised Simone :o) xo

  3. You can never have enough room to keep food hot or cold when celebrating. It's the trickiest bit of all!

    I'm pretty chilled this year... mostly because I'm not (technically) hosting! x
