Although I’m likely doing a traditional Christmas dinner this year (I haven’t finalized my menu–shocking! but something along these lines, with a ham), I think a California Christmas would be a fun compliment to my California Thanksgiving. While the rest of the country has a white Christmas, I’m dreaming of Christmas in the fog…
A eucalyptus wreath or swag would make a good-smelling and local decoration for your door or table.
Some fresh carrots and California pecans would be delectable!
I might make this clementine sorbet anyways!
I love Sunset magazine’s fresh and modern holiday table settings (especially without a runner or tablecloth or placemats– how casual!).
My neighbor has a tree full of pomegranates, maybe they’d let me have some to make this pomegranate duck glaze. Yum.
Happy Christmas and New Years party planning!
