Fall Garden Party

Hi all,  Michael Wurm, Jr. of Inspired by Charm here! Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the deep, rich, saturated colors, the hearty and flavorful foods, and the pleasantly reassuring smells of leaves, pumpkin, and spices. As the warm temperatures of summer fade and the frost covers the landscape, people quickly move inside.

This year, instead of escaping from the outdoors, I’m encouraging you to embrace it! Grab some pumpkins, your dining room table, and a couple throws. Then call your friends and invite them over for a Fall Garden Party. I’ve pulled together some of my favorite fall-inspired table elements to make your dinner magical and unforgettable! Where are the chairs you might ask? Grab a few bales of straw, cover them with a blanket or rug, and you’ll have all the seating you need. Plus, after the party, you can use them to decorate your house for the season. I even dug through the BHG recipe archives to plan a delicious, simple, and hardy menu your guests will love. With the planning finished, it’s time to party!

Happy Fall, Y’all! I’ll be patiently waiting for my invitation to your Fall Garden Party.
