My Favorite holiday would only be better if I could eat it outside in a beautiful and cozy setting. I think it wouldn’t be too hard if you planned ahead. Plant graceful grasses, thistle, winterberry and other plants that look beautiful in the fall. Make it festive with golden globes in the trees, and beautiful candles. Arrange firewood for a beautiful but functional backdrop and then start a fire or fire up the heater, while snuggling under a suzani lap blanket. Finally enjoy a straight from the earth feast in garden.
