This season, staying in never looked better! Create an intimate atmosphere at home by setting up a small table by the crackling fire. Drape a comfy throw blanket on your chair for an added layer of texture and warmth.
When it comes to dressing the table, layering warm metallics with a cool palette of berry and mauve sets the scene for a dreamy, romance-inspired table. Creating a special tablescape is the ideal time to pull out heirloom pieces to mix with new finds for a look that feels familiar yet fresh. Miniature pine cones and rose petals add a touch of winter elegance to the table, and the glow of flickering tapered candles provides the right ambience.
Fresh flowers always make for an enchanting centerpiece. Opt for florals in rich, deep hues of burgundy and magenta to arrange with creamy winter-white blooms.
Spiced mulled cider garnished with orange slices and cinnamon sticks is a festive way to begin your meal.
A loaded tray layered with charcuterie and favorite finger foods offers a perfect appetizer or a light entrée that is both delicious and beautiful.
