Traditions

Luminarias
A glowing winter tradition that transports us to brisk piñon-scented nights in Santa Fe. Make your own with simple tea lights (we prefer fake ones for peace of mind) and paper bags, and place them along outdoor pathways or by your door for an enchanting glow on dark, winter evenings.
Paperwhites
We adore the tradition of growing our own indoor paperwhites from bulbs—the wonder of watching them bloom never ceases to delight us. These also make lovely gifts for those with a green thumb.
Eucalyptus Confetti
A festive (and fragrant!) touch for any holiday celebration! Make your own by simply using a hole puncher (a great activity for kids of any age).

Mulled Wine
A European tradition that we absolutely adore. Click here to learn how to make your own!
Vintage Nut Cracker
We love buying fresh nuts at the farmers market this time of year (K&K Ranch at the Hollywood farmers market has the best selection!) and keeping them in a bowl for guests to enjoy! Search on Etsy for vintage nutcrackers of all shapes and sizes.
Spruce Tip Tea
There is nothing more quintessentially wintery than the smell (or taste!) of pine. You can make your own Spruce Tip Tea if you live somewhere where you can respectfully forage, or find it at your local health food store.
