Why not do something different this Christmas and host a Christmas BBQ?  Think festive punch, scented candles, fairy lights and delicious marinated meats to share with your loved ones. Here are some Christmas BBQ ideas to get you started…

1. Set-up

 2. Christmas lights

 You can get solar or battery powered fairy lights from pretty much anywhere. Wrapping them around the table legs, around the deck (if you have one) or hanging them in nearby trees or bushes should create a beautiful Christmas atmosphere.

3. Nibbles

 Get a Christmas platter together with delicious cheeses, cold meats, nuts and jam or if you’re looking for something different – a cheese fondue! Make your fondue Christmassy with some festive dipping forks or cut bread into festive shapes (like stars and hearts) If you want to serve a big Christmas meal try and keep the fondue dipping items to veggies like broccoli, radishes and cherry tomatoes. You can find fondue recipes in a blog we wrote here.
