Home Living : November 23rd 2010
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, November 23, 2010 1 HOMELIVING ............................................ INSIDE CRAFTY KIDS Simple Christmas crafts BEAT THE BUGS Dealing with unwanted guests COOKING GOOD Win a stainless steel appliance PRODUCTS Top picks of the week The great outdoors Janita Singh The great outdoors AH Christmas -- time for crackling fires, plump roast turkey bathed in rich brown gravy, plum pudding oozing with brandy- soaked fruit and snowflakes drifting past the frosted window panes -- not! In Australia the trend is towards cold seafood platters followed by fresh seasonal fruit and a day spent lounging in the garden or by the pool -- or at least, that's the idea. But before you fire up the barbie and dig out the red serviettes and reindeer napkin rings, make sure you've got the basics covered. To start, you'll need somewhere to sit that's in the garden but close to the house, particularly the kitchen. Even if the food is cold or you're having a barbecue, you'll still need to ferry the raw ingredients, plates, drinks, bottle openers, cutlery and glasses to and from. A nice view of the pool or garden is also a bonus, so do a bit of a tidy up beforehand if the stand-out feature of your garden is the ancient outdoor loo and a compost heap. Dig out your best linen, silver and glassware and dress the table for success. Finally, don't forget some lighting -- even if it's candles. $3000 OF FREE APPLIANCES WITH YOUR NEW KITCHEN Purchase a new custom-made kitchen and receive $3000 towards free appliances from all the big name brands including Bosch, Fisher and Paykel, Smeg, Omega and much more.
