SETTING THE SCENE
You don't need to be a professional florist or a
successful party planner to set the scene for your
holiday gathering. Using items you probably already have in your home, you can decorate your
buffet table or dining room to look chic, elegant,
rustic and festive.
Herbs are beautiful and perfect for the holiday season. They add color to any tablescape or
centerpiece, and they smell amazing. Try putting
a few sprigs of rosemary or sage in a champagne
flute or tall skinny glass. Add a cinnamon stick for
warmth and spice. Textiles are another fun and
versatile decorating tool. Layer different-colored
napkins or runners beneath your serving platters to add dimension and texture to your party
spread. And for ambiance, swap the harsh overhead lighting with scented candles and stringed
lights. -SH

sonal staples and impress your
friends and family. We have a
sneaking suspicion that you'll be
inspired to plan a holiday get-together just so you can try out the
amazing recipes.

Thanksgiving
My favorite meal of all time
is Thanksgiving dinner. I ask
for it every year on my birthday, which happens to be in
December, so my family ends

up eating turkey and dressing
three times in four weeks (we
also have it for Christmas dinner).
The Thanksgiving menu hasn't
changed much in the last 200
years, but the traditional fare of
turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce
and potatoes wasn't what the
Wampanoag and the Pilgrims ate
back in 1621. Though food historians have deduced what the first
feast didn't consist of, they have
a harder time determining what
they did actually eat.
