We started this series on holiday entertaining a few weeks ago with the outline for Holiday Party No. 1: A Housewarming for a Small Apartment. Over the weekend, Lauren succumbed to my bossiness and held a wonderful event at her apartment in Noe Valley. The mantlepiece was decorated with a fresh winter garland and candles:
gingerbread bundt cake with pear caramel glaze that was out of control delicious. Along with the cake, she also made cookies and guests brought macarons and fresh strawberries.
