5 Table Setting Tips For Your 3 Kings Celebration
We all know that celebrating the holidays in Latin culture is a series of month-long festivities. There are the many posadas that build up to Noche Buena and Christmas. Then there's the loud and bustling New Year's party. However, the fun doesn't stop there, because every Jan. 6 we get together to celebrate El Día de Los Tres Reyes Magos or Three Kings' Day. Even though the most important part of Three Kings' Day is getting a slice of the rosca de reyes for dessert, it's important to have a beautifully festive table arrangement throughout the night. Here's everything you need to know to set your dinner table for a colorful Three Kings' celebration.
Don't be afraid to use this as one last chance to show off your precious Christmas decorations. Start with a decorative tablecloth and add tree ornaments to fill the table with color and sparkle. Opting for wooden plates is a unique way to add a contrasting rustic touch to the table.
There's no way you can accompany your slice of rosca de reyes without a sweet and delicious hot chocolate. Keep mugs or teacups at the table so that your guests can enjoy this warm drink throughout the night.
Dried Fruits and Nuts
Keep a selection of fruits and nuts on the table to serve as a light appetizer or an after-dinner snack. Dried apples, apricots, almonds, and walnuts are great options for the holiday season and can be served on long platters in the center of the table. You can also keep small bowls around the house for guests and relatives to munch on while they mingle.
