Domaine Knows How to Party: Our Most Fabulous Events of the Year

Lucky for us, we were invited to some pretty special events over the past year. From an intimate homemade Italian affair to an alfresco celebration of the French, and a dinner featuring cuisine with a conscience, we ate and drank our way through the year with pleasure. Always looking to expand our entertaining arsenal, we hungrily took in the decor ideas, recipes, and tips from our hosts and hostesses to share them with our dear readers. Looking back on these fabulous fetes we can only hope we were well-behaved enough to score a repeat invite in 2014. head4
