Winter's chill has well & truly settled in for us here in Sydney.
Whilst I know our Winter temperatures don't even come close to those in Northern Hemisphere, we certainly do notice the shift from our hot Summer, Spring, even Autumn days.
For these chillier evenings, it's sometimes nicer to stay indoors, crank up the heating & cook up a feast to share with friends.Slow cooked meats, home cooked pies, soothing soups & roasted root veggies all make for a great night in.
So you've got the food sorted, but have you decided on how you're going to decorate the dining table?
Here are some super simple ideas to truly pay tribute to your Winter feast.
