These long, blustery January nights are the perfect excuse to host a small, spontaneous gathering at home. With a little red wine, a few indoor string lights, and plenty of soft pillows for the floor and sofa, you and your friends will comfortably warm up, rosy cheeks and all. Allow the minimalism of winter to influence your evening’s details with stemless wine glasses, bare wood tables, and even artful arrangements of dried flowers. Along with everything else, keep the dress simple and casual. This evening is ultimately about friendship.
