EVERYONE has their own tastes and traditions when it comes to serving up Christmas dinner.

Last year my sister-in-law decreed that there would be no washing up so the grown-ups could have a rest, and disposable plastic plates and cutlery ruled the day.

At the other end of the scale, I have a friend who has always done the full baked dinner, complete with sizzling turkey carried ceremoniously to the table.

It doesn’t matter what end of the spectrum your family falls into, there’s a wide choice of tableware to create a festive-looking Christmas table.

On a budget, or aiming for a casual look, check out the discount department stores for some cheap but stylish plastic tableware in green and red.

Slightly up the scale, but still affordable, are the dinner sets available in specialist homeware shops like House.

When I was younger, kid-free and idealistic, I bought four four-piece Maxwell and Williams dinner sets.

They’ve been gathering dust in the garage ever since, but in the unlikely event we ever host Christmas those white plates edged in gold will look pretty schmick with the plastic knives and forks!

Heading for the top-end of the scale, Villeroy and Boch have seasonal red and white, green and white or Christmas motif dinnerware.

Of course, it’s possible to mix things up with the bulk of the dinnerware from the budget or middle-of-the-road scale, with a few accent pieces to house snacks on the coffee table.
