Holiday Entertaining Workshop


Wednesday, December 2 at 6:30 pm

Entertaining gurus Eddie Ross and Susan Watson Scully, long-time friends, reunited for a special Antiquarius event.
From perfect cocktails, flowers and tablescapes to clever gift wrapping ideas, these seasoned pros regaled us
with tips, insights and stories from years of entertaining in Greenwich. We asked them about their plans for the
holidays, and how they plan to celebrate with friends and family in this challenging year for entertaining.

Patrons received an Eddie Ross inspired flower arrangement on Friday, December 4.
