Fall Entertaining (easy ideas)

Fall Entertaining (easy ideas)

I love the fall season.  Cooler weather (maybe in some parts of the country) not here as of today!  I can only hope.  When I think of fall I think of warm fuzzy blankets, sweaters, pumpkins, hot chocolate, apple cider, and leaves.  Lots of leaves.  Football games, bonfires, comfort food and my favorite – a blazing fire in the fireplace. A real wood fireplace.

I am putting together an easy fall weekend get-together and you can too.  You don’t have to break the bank either.  Start with a drink bar – I am serving cocoa, apple cider and coffee and coffee cake.  Decorating with real plain pumpkins and my fall lantern.  I have collected some pics and will post those.  I am also trying to get together a fall mantle that will work through Thanksgiving and will post that hopefully soon.

Making the coffee cake the day before the get-together will be easier for you and less stressful.  This coffee cake recipe is from Martha Stewart and you can follow the link by clicking on source below for the complete recipe and ingredients.


Now, if someone can just tell me that we will have a sunny, cool Saturday afternoon, I am ready!  Oh, and I can’t forget the pumpkins!
