Where to Carve the Turkey?

We haven't hosted Xmas lunch for years, so this year was our first for ages and I want to think ahead for next year. DH is adamant that the turkey should be carved and plated in the kitchen, then taken into the dining room on plates. I think we should take the turkey into the dining room and carve it there OR take individual plates into the dining room and bring in a big plate of carved turkey. I think that there was no point in ferrying bowls of veg in when no-one had a plate to put it on and we took much longer faffing about in the kitchen. I'm sure you Xmas MNers will agree with ME!!! What do you think? What do you do?

I think it might be nicer for the guests to see the turkey carried in. Get the 'oo' factor? grin

Also, carving in the dining room means you're still with guests, enjoying conversation etc.

I think (I'm a vegetarian so my opinion won't count fgrin ) that the turkey needs to be carved in full view of the eager diners if the carver is proficient .

My DBro brought the turkey ( precooked turkey crown) which DH carved in the kitchen (we have a kitchen/diner) so we got everyone seated while I got everything onto the serving plates and dishes and DH did the honours.

He was in full view, used my brand new electric knife (and he did an ok job)
