Those of you who are in fall entertaining, pumpkin, color, sweater, and comfy throw heaven, please do share, show, and tell with us what fall looks like in your corner of the world.
Our Canadian snowbird son called home this past Saturday to show and tell what fall looks like in his corner of the world. He and his lovely wife were welcoming several friends in for an evening of fall entertaining featuring fireside cocktails and fall themed food and drink.
We discussed what cocktails and dishes would be served, the fall decor touches his bride was adding to the mantle, how good of an idea it was for his mom to suggest a first fire of the season to warm up both home and hearth, and at the moment it just happened to be snowing.
Louisiana temperatures can’t see fit to drop below 83 degrees with 98% humidity. Meanwhile, the Canadian snowbird is not only enjoying fall, but winter to boot (or should I say aboot).
Cool, crisp, and cold weather signals it’s time to pull out the blankets and throws, start a fire in the fireplace, bedeck the abode to fit the season, and invite friends over to gather together for a it’s fall y’all celebration.
Part of the fun of entertaining is coming up with festive and creative ways to put a festive spin on the presentation of drinks, snacks, entrées, sides, and desserts.
Better Homes & Gardens shows how using a hallowed-out pumpkin lined with a fall themed kitchen towel as a serving bowl for chips brings the fall harvest serving A game to the table.
Apples and cheese make tasty pairing partners, and these appetizing apple-shape cheese are so simple to make.
Begin by rolling your favorite choice of soft cheese into a ball.
Coat the cheese in smoky paprika, finely crushed pecans or walnuts, minced fresh herbs, or crushed gingersnaps.
Press the top of the ball to create a spot for the stem.
Finish the “apple” by inserting a branch with leaves or a pretzel, bread, or cinnamon stick paired with a bay leaf to create a stem completing the apple look.
Fall, winter, spring or summer- farmhouse chic is a Gouda look.
It’s Pumpkin Time
My daughter-in-law is a loyal Michaels Stores shopper whereas her mother-in-law spreads the loyalty around in the name of the best deal. This past Sunday, I lucked up on a super Sunday sale at our local JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores.
I’m stocked and ready to fall to Thanksgiving tablescape.
Several fall decorating-entertaining-tablescapes show and tell emails between the two of us garnered ideas and inspiration across the miles.
She suggested I take a look at the fall into Thanksgiving themed pillow covers available from Wish.com. The grateful and the autumn pillow covers are on the way, and I can’t wait to see how the pillow covers in real fall decorating time will complete the look I have in mind.
I suggested she print and frame this lovely colorful fall printable from Refresh Restyle as fall favors for her guests. The link to the free printable is provided under the image.
Our favorite time of the year season easily inspires a celebration. Fall entertaining is a crisp breeze when good ideas, finds, and friends come together.
