Some of us may still be sorely missing that Thanksgiving dinner, but Christmas dinner is on its way to dry our foodie tears. Seriously, the spread is so picture perfect, it’s no wonder our feeds will be flooding with plate pics. Christmas dinner Instagram captions have to be as filling as the meal itself, because your plate needs to stand out from the rest.

Sure, Christmas has been made out to be a holiday revolving around gifts, trees, and peppermint-flavored everything, but what about that dinner plate that inevitably #blesses our bellies? Every household is different, which is why you’ve got to show off yummy food straight from your kitchen. A plate of delicious food will never go out of Instagram-style, so get snappin’ before you begin eating this Christmas. Whether it’s a traditional Christmas feast, or something special your family cooks up each year, you just have to show it off to your followers.

From angles to plate assortment, you can already envision how that delicious ensemble is going to look before you devour all of your favorite contents. Get a before-and-after thing started or simply show the gorgeous plate before you decide to dig in like it's no one’s business. Either way is completely acceptable. Or maybe you’ll get creative with it and make a drool-worthy reel to a fun, trending song this holiday season. Whichever you choose, any of these Christmas dinner captions can accompany those plate pics and have your followers drooling on their screens.
