It is all about the dinner but here is some helpful advice on how to keep the pressure off
Do an inventory list and buy supplies- You will probably need some extra plates, dishes and serving utensils and if possible try and borrow them from other family members who are attending the dinner. Get plenty of candles, napkins and crackers and stick to a theme for the table décor if possible as it will look amazing.
Sort the house out prior to the big day- If you need to make room for tables and chairs do it now while you are free to do so in the house without loads of people around. Set the table the night before and have as much as possible done, if the bathroom needs tidying bribe one of the kids to do it and remember to get extra toilet roll for all the extra guests.
Prepare food ahead of time- The turkey and ham can be done on Christmas Eve and a lot of the prep too, to be one step ahead. Ask relatives to help and let them bring the starter or desserts to give you the main meal to only worry about. As for the dessert cheesecake can be done a day or so before and puddings.
