Step 1: Declutter and Clean

Before you start decorating, take some time to declutter your home. This will make it easier to move furniture around and make space for all of your holiday decorations. Once you’ve decluttered, give your home a thorough cleaning. This will ensure that your house is sparkling clean for your guests.

Step 2: Decorate

Now comes the fun part! Decorate your home with festive decorations. You can use traditional Christmas decorations, such as tinsel, baubles, and a Christmas tree, or you can go for a more Aussie Christmas look with decorations that feature native Australian flora and fauna.

Step 3: Set the Table

Your dining table is going to be the focal point of your Christmas lunch, so make sure it looks its best. Use a festive tablecloth, napkins and add some centerpieces. You can also set place settings with Christmas crackers and festive placemats.

Step 4: Create a Festive Atmosphere

There are a few things you can do to create a festive atmosphere in your home. Play some Christmas music, light some candles, and put out some Christmas-scented candles or diffusers. You can also make your own Christmas potpourri or simmering pot.


Step 5: Prepare the Food

An Australian Christmas lunch or dinner is a feast of fresh, seasonal produce and classic Aussie fare. Think succulent prawns on the barbie, refreshing salads with local greens, and juicy glazed Christmas hams. No Aussie Christmas spread would be complete without a platter of crisp summer fruits, like mangoes, pineapple, and watermelon, and a variety of sweet and savoury dips. For dessert, there’s always a a light and airy Pavlova topped with fresh berries and whipped cream, or a traditional Christmas pudding with custard and brandy sauce.

Step 6: Relax and Enjoy

Once your house is prepared and your guests have arrived, it’s time to relax and enjoy the holiday season. Spend some time catching up with loved ones and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Additional Tips:

  • If you have a backyard, consider setting up an outdoor area for guests to relax and enjoy the warm weather.
  • If you have a pool, make sure it is clean and ready for guests to swim.
  • Have plenty of ice on hand for drinks.
  • Make sure you have enough seating for all of your guests.
  • Be prepared for anything! Have a plan in case of bad weather, and make sure you have enough food and drinks for unexpected guests.

With a little planning and preparation, you can host a memorable Aussie Christmas lunch that your guests will love.
