Celebrate Eating As a Family: Win £250 to spend on a Dining Table & Chairs from Wren Living

I much prefer eating as a family – in the evenings after school and work – it’s a chance to relax, chat and enjoy time together. It’s not just the food, although that is the main event, but it’s time to sit down and discuss what activities to do as a family, solve a problem, plan a holiday or make arrangements for a day out……it’s valuable time and rather than balancing a meal on a tray in front of the telly, what better than to sit down at a lovely dining room table with your loved ones to eat.

      I need to celebrate buying my first home of my own, so this would be a perfect opportunity to furnish my non existant dining room and get all the family round for a wholesome housewarming dinner. I’d cook a massive roast, (meat and vegetarian) wine and lots of baked treats. Time to finally use all those stockpiled recipes.

  1. Kirsten Murphy says

    oh it’d be wonderful to have a dining room table big enough for all of us now that our family has expanded to include a daughter-in-law, an almost daughter-in-law and a granddaughter. It’s amazing how life can change so much in two years! I would probably cook a huge lasagne as I know we all love it

  2. Tracey Peach says

    I would celebrate winning this fabulous prize by gathering all the family round & making a huge heart stew & dumplings because everyone loves it xxx

  3. Julia Forrest says

    I just got engaged so I would get both sets of parents together for a meal so they can get to know each other properly! I would make lots of nibblely dishes like crab cakes, mini cheeseburgers and sandwiches! Plus lots of champagne of course!

  4. says

    I think sitting down as a family is very important. It’s the time to catch up on the days events, relax together and communicate face to face rather than by text and email. Great prize. GG

  5. ursula hunt says

    I have recently moved house so would have my daughter and son around, cook a traditional sunday roast and celebrate moving in

  6. Jayne T says

    I’d be made up to win this as my table really needs replacing. To celebrate, I would cook my family a roast dinner followed by a homemade chocolate cake. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    I would attempt to cook Chinese hotpot a great sharing meal and invite my parents and brothers’ families to eat together.

  8. says

    Since leaving home after university, my family is actually now comprised of my friends, including my two housemates! So if I won, there would be a big group of us enjoying a mezze style buffet served from a brand new table! (This would make one of my housemates particularly happy, as she hates our current dining room table.)

  9. Gerri Tennant says

    A lovely dining table and chairs would be great for helping my husbands ageing parents at meal times. They just about live independently but if we don’t eat with them they ‘manage’ on bits and pieces of food that is not enough for them.
    With a decent table we could establish a routine of them coming to us for dinner, as at present we have to go there every day. This would make life so much easier.

  10. Florence Cross says

    I would invite my in-laws round who would be delighted not to be cramped around our existing table, and I would cook a Sunday roast beef. There would plenty of room to put out all the accompanying vegetable, Yorkshire puddings & sauces, so everyone could just help themselves.

  11. Jo Glasspool says

    If I won it would allow me to invite some of my extended family over, cause then we will have a big enough table, and have a murder mystery night. As you cant go wrong with a roast this is what we would eat whilst trying to solve the who done it! xx

  12. Sue says

    A roast because it can be prepared in advance and it almost cooks itself so I can chat to the family without having to keep going back to the kitchen.

  13. kellyjo walters says

    we just bought another house so this would be great for the dining room… I’d cook a big seafood risotto

  14. Tracey Belcher says

  15. Angie Allen says

    I would make a three course meal for all the family with a lovely dressed table & lots of chats & laughter.

  16. Hester McQueen says

    Raclette with all the trimmings, prosecco to drink or a light beer, Chocolate pots for dessert! Family, partner, daughter x2, son-in-law, grand-daughter and celebrate with Swiss friends. Makes me happy thinking about it.

  17. Rebecca Owen says

    As there are birthdays to celebrate in my family every month until Christmas, I’d invite the whole family over for a special birthday dinner and cook a traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings, followed by a giant slice of birthday cake for everyone!

  18. Charlie Wand says

    I would invite my friends around and have a pot-luck buffet. I would make hummus and roasted vegetable pie.

  19. Mary Heald says

    We would have a celebratory lunch celebrating my sons A level results. We all like Sunday lunch so we would Christen the table with a lovely meal .

  20. says

    I would invite my girl friends around for a lovely lunch and wine.
    This time we would celebrate
    The joy and comfort.
    No more sitting on the floor
    I would be the proud owner
    of a beautiful new dining room table and chairs

  21. glenn hutton says

  23. Wayne Roberts says

    I would have a celebratory meal to see off our daughter to university. Pasta is her favourite, so pasta it will be. Then after dessert we would follow it up with a board game.

  24. Amy Beckett says

    First of all I’d tell my grandma that I have won her a fantastic prize and invite everyone round her for a family dinner as out cottage is too small.

    We would have Chicken and Mushroom Filo Pies with seasonal veg and some stodgy sticky toffee pudding for afters.

  25. Edward Guerreiro says

    I would invite my family over, including my cousins, and have our usual feast. This includes prawns, smoked salmon, stuffed grape leaves etc. for starters. Then Roast beef and chicken/turkey for main. And then a whole host of desserts.

  26. Lorraine Tinsley says

    I’d invite the whole family over and do a good old fashioned roast with all the veg and loads of gravy

  27. Rachel Williams says

    I would celebrate by having our friends over for an evening of home brew beer with homemade pizza – we’ve been experimenting with pizza stones and a base using the beer for yeast. Yummy!

  28. Julie Booth says

    I would celebrate winning this fabulous prize by gathering all the family round & making a lovely curry with all the trimmings.

  29. Lee Davis says

    We always eat together at weekends, so a special Sunday lunch with all the trimming would be in order as I dont cook it very often as I get no help in the kitchen!

  30. Diane S says

    Would have to have everyone over for a big sunday roast, I would probably try to convince them all we should have a christmas dinner, even if it is the middle of summer!

  33. George Worboys Wright says

    We’d have a lovely family meal and invite my in-laws. I think I’d cook up a Mexican feast cos there’s something for everyone and we can all help ourselves. Then after we’ve all mucked in clearing up we’d end up getting the board games out!

  34. Irene Wright says

    We had a wonder family dinner last month for my husbands 75th birthday. Next one will be my own birthday in December. Last month I cooked two different lamb casseroles in the slow cooker. Also loads of roasted vegetables, potatoes, couscous & garlic bread. Finished off with apple pie, a chocolate torte & ice cream. Much wine was consumed and much laughter around the table. Lovely!!

  35. John Mcgovern says

    With a new table we would make a special meal of it and invite friends around for a good home cooked meal.

  36. Rachel Edney says

    I’d love to invite my parents and the in-laws round to thank them for looking after the kids during the school holidays. I’d cook a selection of Spanish tapas.

  43. Tracy B says

    I’d have a big family meal – with a colourful Asian salad, a selection of meats and homemade garlic bread. I absolutely love for all the family to be together at meal times, especially meals where everyone can just dig in and help themselves.

  44. Dawn F says

    I’d invite the family over and make a big vegetarian meal with salad starters and some yummy apple cake for dessert.

  45. Christine Shelley says

    I’d have a special sunday lunch for my daughters 20th in September for our family and her boyfriend and cook a lovely roast

  46. Barbara Handley says

    I would give it to my son and his family as a house warming present as he is moving in a few weeks time. We would have a family gathering round the table and probably have a Sunday roast with pudding.


    Would have to be my favourite meal – butternut squash and sweet potato soup to start, roasted seabass with garlic potatoes and asparagus, carrots and green beans, apple pie and custard to finish :)

  48. YOLANDA (yoey) DAVIS says

    Winning this would mean a lot to me and my family. I’ve wanted one for years, but not been able to afford it. At the moment we eat off our laps, but I dream of cooking a lovely roast dinner and being able to sit around the table to eat and talk.
