Plan a Christmas party on a budget

Food: Trad is rad

If you're planning on cooking, go the traditional Christmas way - with a twist, of course. 

'There are a million ways to make a Christmas supper delicious and gorgeous but not expensive," Silcoff says.

"Turkey is one of the least expensive things you can possibly do," she suggests.  

Boring? Think again.

"You can be more original with your stuffings," Silcoff adds. "You can do spiced apples and prune stuffing with apricots. You can do  traditional English pudding, which is all dried fruit marinated in rum. You steam it and pour cognac over it and flambé it when it's being served with a stick of holly - it looks very festive."

Light the candles, dim the lights, and serve with a mug of hot mulled wine. Voila!
