Winter Gatherings

Ideas to Make Winter Family Gatherings and Meals Together Perfect.

Winter is a cosy and snuggly season, one that brings families together, with its welcoming ambiance and the promise of hiding away from the cold.

It’s the perfect time to gather your loved ones for memorable and cosy family meals; so whether you are celebrating a special occasion or you just want to create memories, there are plenty of creative ways to make your special time together memorable.

Below, we have taken a look at some ideas to make time together as a family unforgettable.

How to Use Table Decorations to Transform Winter Family Gatherings

One of the first things that can set the tone for a perfect winter family gathering is the table decoration, and there are a lot of things that you can do.

Instead of setting a simple and standard table, do something unique to you. It’s a great way to welcome family and friends, and to show that you have gone above and beyond to create a specific ambiance.

For example, you could create an ambiance with candles. Light your dining space with an array of candles in various candle holders and sizes to create a warm, welcoming and cosy glow. You could also add a seasonable centrepiece, by incorporating natural elements like pinecones, branches or berries into you’re table setting. You could even add some fairy lights for a magical touch.

You could also consider adding blankets or cushions on the backs of chairs for your guests to snuggle up in during the meal. This not only adds warmth, but also creates an intimate atmosphere that your family is sure to love, whilst making them as comfortable as possible.


Complete your Winter Family Gathering with a Seasonal Menu

A truly seasonal meal wouldn’t be complete without a delicious seasonal menu. It’s the perfect time of year to embrace the cold weather and offer a menu that includes hearty comfort foods like soups, stews and casseroles.

Also serve warm beverages to keep everyone cosy, such as hot chocolate or mulled wine. You could let everyone indulge in a winter themed dessert, such as apple pie, gingerbread cookies or chocolate fondue.

The aim of a seasonable menu is to make guests feel warmth from the inside out.

With so many ideas to make winter family gatherings perfect, you won’t be short of choice. You won’t struggle to create a gathering that ticks every box for you, and your family.
