Breaking down dinner etiquette this Christmas

Christmas is a time for good food, excellent drinks, friends, family and your very best manners.

Spending time with those you love can be wonderful and also a tiny bit testing, so we’ve searched high and low for a guide to manners and its no surprise that Debrett’s, that bastion of good taste and etiquette since 1769, has come the Christmas party with this quiz to keep you and the family bemused over your turkey and aperol spritz. How relevant is British decorum to New Zealand’s summer? Not very but since Paul is from the U.K. and is off there for Christmas lunch with his family in the heart of Norfolk, we thought we’d join in spirit.

Access the quiz online here and if you are into it you can also download it is PDF printable format so you can pass a copy out and see who has a trivia-level grasp of English manners.

Happy Holidays, and may your Christmas be spent in beautiful spaces, from Paul Izzard and all of the team at Izzard Design xxx
