Personalised tableware, dessert cupcakes and a very sensible christmas salad. Here’s how the other half do their festive feasts on the big day
Forget tacky paper hats from Christmas crackers or your nan’s legendary trifle. Celebrity Christmas dinners are fabulously extravagant and luxurious in every way.
Here’s how the pop stars, super models and heiresses dine on the big day.
Victoria's Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio not only knows how to decorate a cracking Christmas table, but she also seems to favour cupcakes over the traditional Christmas pud for dessert. We're with you on that one, Al.
This is Miranda Kerr's Christmas feast: salad.
And would you take a look at all that goats' cheese? We'd tuck into the obligatory third "It's Christmas" helping, despite the fact that the soup indicates it's all part of a starter course and there'd actually be much more to come (we hope).
Dolce & Gabbana
The Dolce & Gabbana Christmas dinner last year not only featured the longest table ever with fabulous fresh flowers and gold china, but would you look at those TINY SANTA DOLLS. All the guests got one, including Kylie Minogue.
We thought When You Say Nothing At All was our favourite thing about Ronan Keating, but that was before we found out his Christmas table decor skills are ON. POINT.
Personalised glitter initials, like the ones Ronan put on to every plate, were a stroke of artistic genius and a handy way to make sure you don't have to sit next to dodgy Uncle Kev. Also note: the massive bowl of punch and charred corn on the cobs; further evidence that Ronan's a trendsetting Christmas Day maverick.
Think you don't need mini Christmas stockings for your cutlery? You're wrong. Nicky Hilton Rothschild (sister of Paris) loves them; they keep your knives and forks toasty (a must), they look adorable, and they don't even upstage the little Santa place cards she's laid out for each guest.
