My Holiday Dinner Party

The holiday season is one of my favorite times to entertain. Last Saturday I hosted a dinner party for twenty friends at my Bedford home. Today's blog is all about that evening and touches on some of the things I love best - getting my home ready for guests, preparing a special meal, and entertaining. Among our decorations for that night was the special treatment of a weeping beech tree from my property that had died last summer. You'll see how we brought it to life again for the holidays. You'll also see the delicious meal prepared by chef Pierre Schaedelin: osso bucco, risotto of chanterelles, vegetables from my garden, and for dessert - two types of pastry dessert cups with ice cream. And you'll see my Winter Home beautifully decorated for the holidays. I'll be sharing more photos of our holiday preparations in the days ahead.
