Christmas table settings: formal or simple?

Christmas table settings: formal or simple?

No matter what your style, these table settings are sure to inspire.

FORMAL GLAMOUR 

Sandra Kaminski is a table setting connoisseur. In the years of hosting dinner parties she has accumulated over 100 table cloths and numerous sets of crystal and china dinnerware. 

This December she hosted a Christmas dinner party for 80 guests and the morning of she had a truck load of flowers arrive to decorate with. 

Sandra Kaminski’s Christmas table last year featured a gingerbread house and white flowers.

It’s flowers, she says, that really make a table setting, and should be the first item that goes on to the table when setting it up.  “Look at a table like a garden,” she says, “well designed gardens have layers and a table needs layers too.”

Start with a colour scheme. Last year Kaminski’s Christmas table was green, white and silver, this year she’s chosen a red and white theme.

“Colour is really important,” she says. “Everything needs to be co-ordinated.” 

Start with the flowers, either a few vases scattered over the length of the table, or one long vase down the middle. The arrangements should be tight bunches, in varying shades of the colour scheme, Kaminski suggests. 

Kaminski prefers to keep food off the dining table.

“The height of the flowers is really important, you need to be able to talk to and see the person sitting opposite you.” 

Next to go on the table are the dinnerware and glassware. Kaminski always puts four crystal glasses at each place setting; a red wineglass, a white wineglass, a champagne glass and a tumbler. 

“Everything should be clean and polished and no plastic cups.”

Thread some fairy lights along the centre of the table for some festive sparkle.

Follow on from the plates and glasses with napkins, crackers and decorations. All of which should be in line with the colour scheme.

“There’s no need to overdo the decorations or overcrowd the table,” says Kaminski, “flowers and the sparkle of glassware is often enough. If you do use decorations, keep them small and place them around plates or on the edge of dishes.” 

Kaminski likes to leave all food dishes off the table. “It may start off looking pretty, but once everyone has started feasting, these dishes just look ugly. Plus it’s good for people to get up and move around a little bit.” 

Instead of a table cloth opt for a simple table runner.

Little touches like candles can make all the difference too, she says. Even in the middle of the day they’re good for ambience; “there’s usually a dark corner somewhere that can do with a bit of added glow.” 

If you’re taking your Christmas table outside, Kaminski suggests being conscious of what ground your setting up on, it’s best to make sure it’s level. 

“People tend to relax a bit more when they’re outside and things get knocked over a bit more, so keep an eye out for this.” 

Pohutukawas give any table a festive Kiwi feel.

SIMPLE AND NATURAL 

Tina Stephen of the online interior design service Roomie likes to keep her Christmas table decorations simple. “Don’t over decorate, choose natural materials and leave the red and green decorations in the shop,” she says. 

When it comes to choosing a tablecloth she says it depends on the table in question and what shape it is. 

“Generally speaking a washed cotton or linen tablecloth in a soft army green or dark grey creates a practical and beautiful canvas for a Christmas setting. Offset this with crisp white linen napkins.”

Like Kaminski, Stephen opts for flowers as the centre piece for a table setting but she advises not to overpower the tabletop. 

Leaning more toward a natural and organic arrangement she suggests displaying foraged pohutukawa flowers and pine scented candles work nicely. “Or better yet, hang a botanical arrangement from the ceiling to avoid tabletop clutter,” she says. 

Whilst decorations are necessary for a festive feel, she prefers to keep it minimal and purchase locally made heirloom pieces or even make her own. “Our Plump Co wreath from last year is still up on the wall, it’s so beautiful.” 

Stephen will always include beautiful candles, polished cutlery and vintage plates, however she says leave name cards off the table; “they’re far too formal for a Kiwi christmas.”

Top holiday hosting hacks and easy candied bacon

2. Diversify: From the guests on the invite list to the type of foods and flavors you plan to share at your gathering, mixing it up a bit is always welcome and brings new life to any party! Try a snack-style appetizer spread versus the standard seated dinner to promote movement and conversation. Adding foods with inspired and ethnic flavors will make the eating experience fun and interesting! Keep the basic five elements in each dish you prepare for balance: savoriness, sweetness, saltiness, acidity and texture.

3. Invest: Invest in quality “summer china,” or acrylic plates and flatware. This makes party clean up a breeze and you can spend more time enjoying the season, instead of doing dishes or inadvertently guilting party guests into helping you do the dishes. Don’t forget to add a garbage can when you introduce disposable dinnerware. Also, snag some extra disinfectant wipes and spray. How many times have you had a successful party, cleaned up and sat down to relax only to have an attendee at the party call you and tell you her kid has the stomach bug that’s going around?

4. Shoe Problem Fix: Do you have guests who never take off their shoes, leaving a mess of tracked in snow and mud, or worse: hardwood floor scratches? Snag some of the plastic booties off the farm (the stretchy ones that are short) and set them in a basket by your front door along with other festive shoes lined up prompting people to remove theirs when they come to your party.

5. Stencil your goodies: Drop a stencil on a freshly frosted cake and cover with glitter sprinkles for a simple, beautiful cake design. Display the handy work of your children by placing handmade snowflakes on top of a pan of brownies and dust with powdered sugar.

6. Use unflavored dental floss: Cut through cookie dough, cinnamon rolls and other pinwheel appetizers without smashing them by using unflavored dental floss as a slicing device. Simply place floss underneath the item, pull ends up and criss cross above, and pull through to slice.

7. Enjoy: Don’t be a merry martyr. Try to sit back and enjoy as much as possible, you deserve it!

And make candied bacon!

Spicy Apple Bourbon Candied Bacon

Ingredients:

1 pound thick cut smoked bacon

⅓ cup packed brown sugar

⅛-¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

¼ cup apple butter

2 tablespoons quality bourbon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place bacon strips onto a wire rack-topped baking sheet. Bake strips in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile combine brown sugar, apple butter, cayenne pepper and bourbon in a small bowl. Stir to combine. When the timer for bacon sounds, remove bacon from the oven. Spread sugar mixture onto each strip evenly. Return to the oven for an additional 10-15 minutes until bacon is cooked, and sugar mixture is caramelized. (Watch closely.) Remove from oven, let cool for 5-10 minutes and serve warm. Makes 1 pound or 10-16 slices.  *Cooking times will vary based upon the thickness of bacon used.

*Make ahead: serve at room temperature or slightly re-warmed.

Other variations are:

Whiskey Peach Candied Bacon: Substitute whiskey for bourbon, peach jam for apple butter and all other ingredients stay the same.

Spicy Pear Brandy Candied Bacon: Substitute pear jam for apple butter, brandy for bourbon. Omit cayenne.

DINING: Two new breakfast spots increase morning options

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We’ve all heard that line.

Unfortunately, the morning dash to work or school often means just a grab-and-go that primarily benefits doughnut shops and Kellogg’s.

But a good breakfast—it doesn’t even have to be a great breakfast—can make your day. Even if that breakfast is loaded with carbs and covered with syrup. Of course, it helps if the price is right.

The recent opening of two local breakfast-focused eateries gives us a pair of new reasons to share the early meal with business associates, family or friends—or to enjoy some quality alone time before diving into your day.

To the north, there’s Rad’s (4733 E. 126th St., Carmel, 317-740-0129). While the name might suggest otherwise, the place is far from radical. It’s cozy, unintimidating, and the kind of place that might succeed where more ambitious places haven’t. The key is getting the locals to make it a habit. And I can see Rad’s becoming a comfortable alternative to chains, thanks to its skill with breakfast staples and touches that indicate someone in the kitchen is thinking.

Biscuits and Gravy ($9.50), for instance, is about as traditional as you can get. But with scratch biscuits and a pork belly sausage generously mixed in with scrambled eggs and hash browns, it won me over. For the price, I could have used an extra slice or two of the not overly thick Challah French Toast ($9), which comes partnered with a choice of meat. But, again, it felt both hearty and honest without being boilerplate.

An order of Buttermilk Pancakes ($8.50) gets you two tannish-brown orbs big enough to fill a plate. They arrived hot, dusted with powdered sugar and topped with a healthy (or, I guess, not-so-healthy) dollop of butter melting on top. Sharing the plate with bacon, pork sausage, turkey sausage or, in our case, thin slices of grilled ham, the thick cakes yield nicely to a fork, proving themselves to be of the firm-and-weighty variety rather than the thin-and-lightweight. Forking up bites with the plump blueberries scattered around the plate allowed for bonus bursts of flavor and the opportunity to rationalize that something healthy might be going on.

Thinly sliced ham served on the side came off as a little dry, but, when layered onto a bite of pancake and syrup, it offered a savory spot in an otherwise sticky-sweet mouthful. 

In addition to breakfast choices (served all day), Rad’s also has a short slate of sandwiches and salads. If you go that route, take my advice and start with a bowl of Ham and Bean Soup ($4.50), one of the most satisfying takes on that basic combo I’ve had in years.

Good coffee, too. Rad’s logo, which reads “Coffee Breakfast Lunch,” sends a clear message that lingering over an extra cup is just fine.

In Irvington, Batters Family Pancake House (5543 E. Washington St., 317-602-2925) has taken over the spot formerly occupied by Bitter Sweet and Your Local Deli and Market. Here’s hoping for a longer life for this loosely themed baseball-meets-breakfast spot.

You don’t expect St. Elmo-quality meat from a breakfast joint’s Country Fried Steak platter ($9). What you do expect—and what you get here—is good texture and dominant gravy. Here, it comes sided with two eggs and hash browns or fruit, toast or pancake.

Big League Skillets aren’t all that big, but for the price, there’s plenty. I tried the Sandlot ($8), with discs of Polish sausage, hash browns, onion, green pepper and eggs. Not a stellar example of the genre, but when you consider that it comes with a side item and that side item can be two delicious, thick, fluffy pancakes, it comes out a win.

Get out of bed too late? You can order breakfast here at all hours, but Batters also serves up charbroiled Burgers ($6 to $8), Paninis ($8) and other sandwiches, including Fried Bologna ($7), Italian Beef ($7) and the uncomfortably vague Fish ($7).

Minor complaint: While I was pleased that Batters didn’t keep TVs on or blast music, someone (OK, I’ll do it) should tell the waitstaff and kitchen crew that every word they say can be heard over the partial wall.•

Yesteryears: History of Dennings begins with arrival of James Denning around 1800

At the intersection of Marston and Dennings roads near Taylorsville lies the small community of Dennings. It began with the arrival of James Denning from County Donegal, Ireland, about 1800. On July 1, 1805, in Baltimore County, he married Elizabeth Steele, widow of John Steele, who died in 1803.

Before his death, John Steele owned property on the old line dividing Baltimore and Frederick counties. The Baltimore County 1798 tax list showed Steele with 30 acres of the tracts Hawkins Fancy and The Spike including a log house and a tavern. In 1814, James Denning bought the property from James and Robert Steele, heirs of John.

By 1819 enough people lived in the area to establish a post office. Notice of it appeared in the March 26, 1819 edition of The Westminster Chronicle and Weekly Advertiser. J. Denning at Denning’s Post Office was listed as an agent for this very early newspaper.

Sometime after 1825 Denning built a two-story stone house to replace the earlier one of logs. In talking with the late Billy Yohn, who was born in the house and owned it up until his death earlier this year, I tried to ascertain if the stone house was built around the original log one. He said he had found no indication of that.

All-Clad Nonstick Pans For Sale At Lowest-Ever Price

Give The Gift Of Extremely Fancy Cooking At An All-Time Low Price

The AskMen
Acquire
team thoroughly researches reviews the best gear, services and staples for life.


If you’re not much of a cook, you might be shocked to learn how absolutely insane the world of high-end kitchen appliances can get. Knives for well over $200? Can’t cook without ’em! $600 for a blender? You didn’t need to pay rent this month, anyway. $300 for a fancy cast iron dutch oven that’s literally the same as one for 1/10 the price? Status symbols aren’t cheap. To recreate one of those kitchens you see on HGTV, you could easily spend upwards of $100,000 on gadgets and appliances alone.

RELATED: 25 Awesome Gifts Any Man Would Love To Get

Perhaps most emblematic of the scene is All-Clad. The U.S.-based company makes what’s pretty well accepted as the best cookware on the planet. Their signature tri-ply pans are made with aluminum sandwiched between two layers of steel, and the result is a pan that heats more evenly and transfers heat more efficiently than anything else on the market. Nothing sears quite like an All-Clad tri-ply. They’re pretty to look at, too.

RELATED: Your 101 Guide To Picking The Perfect Gift For Her

The problem is, they’re priced like they’re the best in the world, too. In their most popular (and far from most expensive) line, a single 10″ frying pan, the most common in any kitchen, is $99. For one single pan. To build just a modest collection, you’re looking at like $1,000. No thanks. Thankfully, All-Clad makes more than just expensive tri-ply cookware. They also make expensive nonstick cookware, but today you can get some at its lowest-ever price.

30% Off All-Clad Hard Anodized Nonstick Cookware Set

All-Clad is going to be the best at just about anything they produce, and these are no exception. Made from hard-anodized aluminum, they’re designed to heat up quickly and evenly for easy everyday cooking. Inside, the nonstick coating is durable and scratch-resistant, letting you cook with less oil and making sure that delicate foods, like eggs and fish, never, ever stick. Aluminum ordinarily doesn’t work on induction burners, but they thought ahead and included a steel induction disk. You get a 10″, which is good for most jobs, and also an 8″, perfect for making classic french omelets, like so:

Normally, I wouldn’t recommend anyone buy an expensive nonstick pan. No matter how well-made they are, the nonstick coating will break down over time, and one day you’ll be making eggs and they’ll stick and your day will be ruined. Nicer ones will definitely last longer, though, if you take care of them. This set of pans is ordinarily $60, far too much to spend for pans with a finite shelf life. But at this price? It’s a great chance to give your partner, family or foodie friends the gift of an extremely expensive brand. They don’t need to know you got it at the cheapest possibleprice.

Walmart strikes a ‘Tasty’ deal with BuzzFeed | Food Dive

Dive Brief:

  • Walmart has partnered with BuzzFeed’s Tasty, the world’s biggest social food network, to allow shoppers to purchase kitchenware and appliances from the network’s recipe video pages, according to a company blog post. The skillets, pans and other available items are available from “buy” screens at the bottom of each page, and are supplied by either Walmart.com or its Jet.com arm.
  • Starting next year, Walmart.com and Jet.com will integrate groceries with Tasty’s 2,000-plus recipe videos. Walmart shoppers will be able to add items for store pickup.
  • Tasty is the largest franchise on Facebook, with more than 90 million followers, according to the release, and has garnered more than 65 billion page views.

Dive Insight:

Walmart’s integration with BuzzFeed’s Tasty app, whose recipe videos typically see viewership in the millions, will expose the mega retailer to new customers, particularly among the coveted millennial set.

Shoppable recipes, as they’re called, have become increasingly popular in recent years. In an interview with Business Insider, Sumaiya Balbale, Walmart’s vice president of e-commerce, mobile, and digital marketing said the partnership puts the retailer in front of consumers in a space where culinary inspiration often strikes.

Walmart and BuzzFeed, she said, had been working on the deal “for months.”

“Consumers today are shopping very differently,” she told the news outlet. “Content and commerce are coming together in more seamless and impactful ways.”

The tie-up also comes in response to Amazon’s recent deals with recipe sites. Last month, the e-tailer’s Fresh service partnered with Allrecipes to let users add recipe ingredients to their online shopping carts. This followed earlier partnerships it announced with Fexy Media, owner of Serious Eats, and with EatLove, which develops weekly meal plans and recipes around consumer preferences and dietary restrictions.

Numerous other companies are narrowing the space between culinary content and the point of purchase. Harris Teeter launched a special recipe site this fall that customers can use to create custom shopping lists. The Dinner Daily, meanwhile, creates weekly dinner recipes for budget-conscious shoppers using their preferred grocery stores.

For Walmart, whose e-commerce sales increased 50% in the latest financial quarter, shoppable recipes are just the latest online promotion aimed at reaching more customers. Last week, as Food Dive first reported, Walmart added meal kits from Takeout Kitchen to its website. On Monday, the retailer began adding more kits from third-party providers, and has reportedly sold out of some of them.
