Today is National Christmas Tree Day, and if you're as confused as we are about how to celebrate that, besides glancing sporadically over at the office Christmas tree, then don't worry, we think we've worked it out.
The fabulous quirky caterer and food blogger Emily Eats has devised a series of travel-inspired cocktails and canapés for us to serve up this Christmas, with minimal festive faff.
This week's offering brings us the heady scents and colours of Morocco - think decorated camels, red-brick riads and seasonal spices wafting in the air at dusk.
So gather a crowd around your Christmas tree and give it a couple of knowing nods to celebrate its national 'day', before swiftly transporting your nearest and dearest to a roof terrace above the old medina of Marrakech, with Emily's 'Rosy Cheeks' Cocktail and dangerously moorish Moroccan Spiced Nuts.
Head over to the Emily Eats blog for the full Moroccan Spiced Nuts recipe. Our top tip is to make a big batch so that any left over can be taken to other Christmas events this December.
Emily's 'Rosy Cheeks' cocktail with rose, grapefruit and gin is dangerously delicious, and cuts through all the rich tastes that we bombard ourselves with at this time of year. It's an absolute seasonal show-stopper, and incredibly easy to whip up with a little bit of theatre as your guests arrive.
We styled Emily's 'Rosy Cheeks' cocktail and Moroccan Spiced Nuts against our Different Different Camels Cushion and Mint Enamel Plate. We're loving the playful pastels and silvers that are so popular in Christmas decorations this year.
So make a night of it around the Christmas tree with Emily's Moroccan-inspired cocktails and canapés, and don't forget to take a snap and tag us on Instagram. We love to see your handy work, even if the picture is cocktail wonky - there's no naughty list here.
