How To Create A Christmas Grazing Table

The post is a collaboration with Woolworths

I’m a planner at heart and I like to be organised; so naturally, I’m already in full Christmas planning mode. This year I’m hosting Christmas lunch. Instead of doing the traditional Christmas lunch where I spend hours baking ham in the kitchen, I thought I would put together an amazing grazing table.

Let me tell you a little something about grazing tables! They are easy to set up, require no cooking and look absolutely amazing. It’s easy to see why they are so popular and a hit for any kind of celebration. I can’t get past the idea of providing Christmas lunch for 20 people with no cooking at all! And how fantastic does it look? My mouth is watering just sitting here editing the video and images.

This whole grazing table took me a total of 30 minutes to put together and cost me around $100 with all the products from Woolworths (I’ll link them below). The great thing about grazing tables is how easy they are to buy for – you can grab everything in one shop at Woolworths or purchase the products in the lead up to Christmas when you see them on sale, saving both time and money.

I know it doesn’t look simple, but check out my video below to see just how quick, easy and totally stress-free my grazing table was to put together.

Tips for putting together your own grazing table:

  • Think about how many people you’re serving and if it will be the main meal or just for snacking
  • Layer it with boards, stands or planks of wood
  • Buy foods when they are on sale at Woolworths or in the lead up to your event
  • Use fresh flowers, fruits or native plants to make the grazing platter really pop
  • Use brown paper for a table covering, that way you can put it straight in the bin when you’re finished

Products I used:

Cheeses

Fruit 

  • Grapefruit
  • Grapes
  • Kiwi Fruit
  • Blueberries

Dips 

Woolworths Deli Meats 

  • Mild Salami
  • Ham off the bone
  • Prosciutto
  • Pastrami

Other Products

Bread

If you don’t want to purchase everything separately, Woolworths have convenient premade platters available.

I’d love to see all the grazing tables you have put together, so make sure you tag me (@ohsobusymum) or share on my Facebook page.

Merry stress-free Christmas!
