A Poets Dinner

In celebration of Imbolc and the spirit of inspiration my husband and I like to host an annual Poets dinner. We set a lavish tablescape, plan a fanciful menu and tell our friends to show up with “Words and Wine.” Last year our little gang really stepped up their game and exposed stunning wild beauty when I asked them all to recite from their favorite works after dinner.
