I can already imagine what our Christmas Eve would be like this year. Aside from the family reunions and gift-giving, I can almost see everyone hanging around the dining table waiting for the clock to strike 12 so we can greet each other with the warmest smile and of course, to eat. Everyone’s got their eyes on their target food, mine is locked in on the dessert. A few minutes into Christmas and everyone’s on their own, munching on something good.
So good that it inspired me to write painting ideas based on our Noche Buena favorites. Read on.
Painting Ideas: As food as it gets
Ham and get it
Known as the life of the party, what’s a great Noche Buena gathering without the Christmas ham? Non-existent. Just imagining the smoky, juicy, and flavorful ball of happiness on the dining table makes me drool over. What more when I finally get my hands and mouth on it? Yes, you can just buy ham from the grocery anytime you want but the holiday season makes it a hundred percent tastier and you can’t tell me otherwise.
Try using the colors of a perfectly cooked ham on your walls. Do you accept the challenge? In Tagalog, do you accept the hamon?
Queso de bola is probably the most versatile dish on the table. You can grate and sprinkle it on your sweet spaghetti, stuff it in a sandwich, or eat it on its own and it would still taste just as perfect. Will you look at that? It can also work on your walls. Use yellow to amp up the room’s energy and add in splashes of red. But be careful not to overdo the combination or it will look like a fast-food chain from way back.
Click! Oops, that was the camera.
Have a rice day
These Christmas staples have always been part of every Filipino’s holiday experience. On your way home after attending Misa de Gallo, you smell that familiar aroma and you just know. On the side of the road stands the long line of bibingka and puto bumbong vendors so you ask your mom to buy you one… two… maybe three. Life is good.
Cherry on top
There will always be room for dessert. After spoiling yourself with all the savory cuisine, indulge your palate with this sweet treat. I happen to read this fun post about what your favorite Noche Buena dish says about you and according to the article, salad as a person is a very detail-oriented, practical idealist. Emphasis on the word very. As a hardcore planner, you make sure that everything is well-organized.
Bring that urge for perfection to your walls by painting it with the colors of a fruit salad. Having various conflicting colors, it takes a hand like yours to make it work. Add in fine points by pairing it with complementary furniture.
