There is something so inviting about winter light. It casts a soft glow onto whatever it touches and beckons time to be spent feeling cozy indoors or enjoying the shorter days outdoors until the last light lingers. For this table setting we were inspired by a moody Nordic ambiance, where textures of wool and sheepskins combined with a bit of the outdoors in the form of various green branches. We teamed up with Botanica Inc., a wonderful New York City based floral design studio founded by Bob Mihalik and Les Newman, who create dream-like settings for various events around Manhattan from weddings to soirees at Lincoln Center. They incorporated nature with branches of juniper, flat seeded eucalyptus and fragrant blue Atlas cedar. Keeping with the Scandinavian theme, we created a simple wreath to hand from the ceiling, by using gold macrame rings with loosely tied flat seeded eucalyptus, which gently wrapped around each circle.

An inexpensive serving idea, display your desserts on clay pot bases. Scrub thoroughly with soap and water, let dry and add a layer of parchment paper underneath. This option is available at Jamali Garden.
