Cozy Up to Christmas
You’ve done it! The presents are wrapped, the cards are in the mail and your cookies are made. Now, relax and pour yourself some hot chocolate; turn down the lights and enjoy the lit tree with your reward…
Christmas Eve is almost here, and it is time to prepare for dinner with your loved ones. A relaxing stroll through the woods collecting greenery, berries and pine cones is all you need to create a farm-to-table affair instantly. For that extra flare and for an easy way to add your personal touch, hand-make a beautiful menu to set beside each plate. Placesettings can be creative, too, when using pinecones you have found—natural or painted white.
After dinner, get out the hot chocolate, share gifts and play games by the fire. It’s about enjoying the time with loved ones and basking in the real meaning of Christmas.
Happy Holidays from Charlottesville Wine & Country!
