I was sitting at home the other evening minding my own business when I started getting these texts from my son Brian who was at a supper club with our own Brooke Bell, Taste of the South editor. Apparently she had put her magic touch on the evening, and the group was completely blown away. Upon later discussion with Brian, it seems that they are in a competition to see who can outdo the other.
I love the table setting and the wonderful placement of the table outdoors. Brooke’s mother has a monogram business, Bobbins Designs, in Fairhope, Alabama, and she designs the most wonderful monogrammed napkins for Brooke’s events. Coupled with beautiful tableware and lovely centerpieces, the setting was perfect.
The group selected one cookbook for the year, and each host of their respective dinner had to select menus from the same cookbook and build a theme dinner around it without repeating a recipe.
As autumn approaches and the evenings are getting cool enough to entertain outside, plan a casual dinner. Use your creativity in fall entertaining. Pumpkins, gourds, and wonderful Indian corn make great centerpieces for the season.
How will you entertain this fall?
