What are your plans for Christmas? Do you normally visit family or do they come to you? If you’ll be playing host during the upcoming festive season you’re probably already beginning to plan for it.
The food cupboards and drinks cabinet need to be replenished – now’s the time to start thinking about making your Christmas cake and sloe gin. Make sure you have ample cutlery, crockery and pots & pans. Who likes eating their Christmas dinner with a plastic knife & fork from a paper plate? Potatoes for a dozen people take up lots of saucepan space when boiling.
Having lots of friends and family round will mean that you’ll also need to provide extra furniture; more beds, more chairs and more table space to accommodate all that festive fayre and the people who want to eat it!
You won’t need the excess furniture all year round, especially if space is tight. So where do you store it all when not in use? Collapsible items such as inflatable mattresses, camp beds and fold up chairs are easier to pack away. The simplest and most practical way of gaining the necessary extra Christmas dinner space is having extending dining tables. There’s a suitable version available whatever your room dimensions, party size or budget.
