#SpodeDNA - A Very Merry Spode Christmas!
This is without a doubt my all time favourite time of year!
The tree is up, the fire is almost always on, Classic FM is playing in the background filling the house with carols and the finale of the season is the family Christmas dinner. For me, the best thing about Christmas Day is our family Christmas dinner.
I love the ritual of helping mummy get the dinner ready. Bread sauce is my speciality and somehow I always find myself left in charge of the sprouts. Then it's time to dress the table. Even though it's normally just the 5 of us, mum and I love the tradition of dressing the table, which will almost always involve a crisp white table cloth, plenty of seasonal clippings from the garden and soft candle light.
