Preparing for a Fall Dinner Party

Fall is the perfect time of year to host holiday dinners and parties. Schedules aren’t as busy as they were in the summer months, and your friends, family and neighbors have more time to get together and celebrate life’s blessings.

With any holiday party comes the need to create a beautiful table setting to make your guests remember the night.

The classic table setting can be spiced up and made elegant when you choose to incorporate gourds and pumpkins into your centerpiece. The pumpkins can be as big or as small as you’d like, but tapping into nature and bringing it to your table is a great way to relax your guests.

Nature can additionally be brought to your table with the use of fall florals. An arrangement of red, orange and yellow flowers as your centerpiece works beautifully when paired with berries and mini pumpkins surrounding the centerpiece.
If you’d like to keep your table setting simple, think several candles and pumpkins, then it becomes necessary to create a dramatic focal point on your table, such as leaves stemming from a tall vase. The tall vase will steal the attention of your guests, and it will compliment great with the few d ecorative pieces on your table.
