Eat, Drink and Be Merry: The Key to Winter Entertaining According to BARNEYS

Eat, Drink and Be Merry: The Key To Winter Entertaining According To BARNEYS

While summers have a knack for spurring backyard barbecues and spontaneous picnics al fresco, cold-weather parties have a distinct charm all their own. For one, there’s crave-worthy comfort food that satisfies you to your core. Then there’s snug party attire (think chunky knits and comfy woolens). And of course who can leave out the cozy appeal of sitting by a blazing fire with your closest friends, lingering over a meal and glass (or three) of vino.

 

Below, the Barneys team dishes on how they host a winter get-together, from their favorite winter fare to dressing to impress.
