Whether you have family over at Christmas or just friends, thinking about what you will do for entertainment ahead of time will ensure that the day is full of fun activities suitable for all ages.
Watching a Christmas film is always an easy and traditional option, just choose a selection of your favourite Christmas movies, and cosy up on the sofa with a hot chocolate (or mulled wine).
If you invite all your friends over to celebrate this Christmas, or just the adult family members, then having a great drink selection at the ready is always a good idea. Show off your best wine glasses with a bar trolley. The Bronx Wooden Bar Trolley from Next would look fantastic in any dining room and will be great to use all year round, not just during the festive period.
