The holidays are indeed a time of hustle and bustle, but they are also a time for hunkering down in your home with family, friends, good music, a fire and nice cocktails. Within this collection, I added pieces that will make your house a festive, shimmery space to entertain and unwind — a place to welcome new people and loved ones alike. — Megan from A Sweet Spoonful
