There are a few surefire ingredients that make for a good holiday party.
They include: cheerful guests, delicious food, fragrant evergreens, seasonal hot toddies & oranges studded with cloves, and many, many photo-ops.
While Lisa was showing us how to work some magic with juniper branches, eucalyptus, and what may have been sea anemones though I am no expert, we tucked into sumptuous banana bread French toast with maple walnuts and worked on our own wreaths.
I love that if you give fifteen people the same ingredients, whether you’re cooking or making wreaths or bouquets, everyone will come up with something vastly different.
And that’s half the fun.
Thank you to Emma, Katie, Stephen, Nat, Lisa, Tim, and everyone for a wonderful day bonding over a shared love for the Hudson Valley and an enthusiasm for all things festive & pretty.
