Look into the far reaches of your cupboards and dust off all those pre-loved board games – scrabble, trivial pursuit, checkers, cards, dominoes – anything goes! A menu filled with easy to prepare, warm comfort food, followed by a simply delicious dessert with homemade hot chocolate.
You can make it as casual or as competitive as you like! We invited eight friends to enjoy our old-fashioned games night, Confetti style…

Decorating a table for a gathering at home doesn’t need to be complex – you can create something special with very little effort or expense. We decorated our table with blue, red and brown tones – a simple linen table runner and napkins, blue porcelain plates, mismatched cutlery, simple playing card place cards,
and a DIY floral arrangement made with recycled amber bottles in all sizes and shapes and filled with herbs and red ‘strawberry field’ flowers.
