Dust off the cards, break out the vinyl and soak up the good vibes. It’s game night!
It’s cold out there, and whether you’re snowed in or just looking to unwind, it’s the perfect time for game night.
Fun for the whole family or as a night in with friends, game night is all about friendly competition. Decor should be simple, drinks should be hot and the mood should be mellow.
Here’s a DIY and a recipe that are sure to charm even the chilliest guest. (Materials and instructions below!)
Card coasters materials
- Vintage playing cards — find them at a flea market or yard sale
- Panel of cork — pick one up at any craft or hardware store
Mulled wine recipe
- 6 cups of cider
- 3 cups of orange juice
- 1-1/2 bottles of red wine — a dry red is best
- Honey (to taste)
Mix ingredients and simmer until hot. Garnish with a blood orange wheel, an anise pod and a stick of cinnamon. Should serve 10-12 people.
