I went to a lunch at a neighbors house last week. A couple years ago, while she was working on her second book, on the history of interior design, she created a lunch group for herself. Neighbors, friends, colleagues, former students, gather for lunch monthly when they are able to come. Here's a view of her tree and her table setting for the Dec. lunch, which she did at her home. Twelve of us attended, our largest group of the year, I think. conversation was lively, warm holiday cheer. Thanks Buie!
