The elegance and simplicity of a French macaron is not only irresistible ending to your meal; it's also the perfect beginning to a winter white dinner party. Marked with an edible gold paint pen and placed lightly atop each place setting, the yielded gracefulness of a macaron place card only takes seconds to complete. I choose the organic macarons available at Whole Foods, but your local bakery works as well. If you're feeling extra bold, make them yourself!
