Here are all the ingreds for a perfect midwinter gathering.
1. white blooms -- paperwhites, amaryllis, tulips -- in vintage glass and black basalt.
2. plenty of prosecco on ice in giant silver chillers.
3. a fire and candlelight.
4. a table and chairs for playing a game -- cards, Clue, Monopoly, Scrabble, dominoes (my fave)
5. a sofa to curl up on for gossiping, story-telling and remembering.
Just add friends.
