We're Having a Fall Shindig

Friday is right around the corner and as I mentioned yesterday, we are having a little shindig to welcome in the new season. (My husband finds my excitement over this 'new season' hilarious as technically we still are having bikini weather here, but, well, whatever!) And, true to form, I decided to throw this Fall festivity a bit last minute. So to prevent myself from having an absolute spaz attack late tomorrow afternoon, I thought it would be a good idea to collect a few ideas. An inspiration board, so to speak.

Up first, we've got some pretty amazing tablescapes, full of pumpkins, apples, and warm fall colors.

And a few ideas for beverages, and my personal favorite course, dessert! I am thinking of doing three mini desserts, mini pumpkin cookies, mini ginger snap whoopies, and mini s'more cups. Did I mention I like sweets?

You can't have a Fall Party without a some decor. These easy and fun D.I.Y leaf garlands are going to be my go-to for a little panache.



I am so excited, but the next 36 hours are going to be busy! The game plan is to bake like a mad woman tomorrow between my morning and afternoon sessions, and that will leave just the main course for Friday afternoon. Oh, and some serious cleaning. Very serious.
