Due to friends’ unavailable during Christmas period and we decided to celebrate Christmas and friend’s birthday (same day with Zaanse! 27th December) few weeks earlier on 6 December. I made some french macarons (details here) for the tea time, this was also my first time to bake french macarons … For the table setting, I used all the available stuffs in my house included the table runner bought very long time ago and those tea sets bought from a Japanese cafe which having closing sales.

For the tea, I choose the Pure Chamomile Flowers tea from Dilmah which is caffeine-free and added lemon and mint leaves.

It’s time for Christmas Dinner ~ I made the simple table setting by using a gold ribbon (25pcs from Daiso which only costed 2 bucks) to tie the cutlery, placed a napkin between the serving plate and soup dish. After trying different table settings, this was the one I prefer and also easier to set.

I made the roasted pumpkin soup (details here), roasted whole chicken (details here) and salmon pasta salad for the dinner menu. Friends commented the food were nice, great to hear these comments ~ I also thought they were nice :p
