Cozy Winter Dinner Party

Invite your closest friends or neighbors for a cozy dinner party this winter. Keep the decor simple with evergreen accents and a pretty pattern, like damask. Serve winter treats, like a warm bacon, hazelnut and bread salad and white hot chocolate for dessert.

White Hot Chocolate or mulled wine are perfect for sipping on. Check out Paula Deen's recipe for White Hot Chocolate {here}.

A warm bread salad makes a great starter for your meal. For the main course, consider a beef stew or pot roast.

Set each place setting with a small wreath and pretty ribbon.
