Ready For Guests!

Here are a few ideas for entertaining guests this Fall and - of course - a few decorating ideas too, just for grins.  :)  Enjoy!

individual salads with berries for a party
I love anything individualized - aren't these so pretty and fun?

Autumn Urn


snacks served in rustic containers
Kid-friendly and adorable.

wine, cheese, fruit and an apple arrangement on a pedestal
A lovely, simple wine tasting party.

for a holiday party, love the tray risers filled with apples...
Holiday parties are right around the corner! 
We have done desserts in champagne flutes and other decorative glasses like these several times and they are always a hit.  Don't miss the great risers too.

individual caesar salad serving
I'm a big fan of the versatile mint julep cup but this idea was new to me!

Fall arrangement in a dough bowl
Now that is an amazing use of a dough bowl!

What a great selection of the ceasar in the mint julep clever and so elegant!! Getting me a little more in the mood for my party tomorrow night though I tossed and turned last night feeling anxious about all I have to do!

i would love to create something like that in my dough bowl! and i must say that spread on the wood boards with all the cheese, fruit, and wine is calling my name!!!

the trick is always snapping a photo before the famished guests dig in!

smiles to you, lovely. it is freezing here so i am all too happy to get myself to arizona in just a few hrs!

That dough bowl arrangement is extremely clever. I have the dough bowls and all the goodies...I just need to get busy!

I love these ideas. I'm giving a luncheon for a friend who is moving. Some of these might work into my menu beautifully.

Hi Barbara,
I'm hosting a morning coffee and a dinner party next month, so am definitely keeping my eye open for creative autumn entertaining ideas! These are great. Love the idea for the decomposed ceasar salad in the mint julep cup!

Hope you are well!

A friend and I have been talking about hosting a wine tasting party for the past few months. A couple of those images are really getting me excited to plan one.
