Fall Entertaining At Home
Warm and Welcome
Fall marks the start of the season filled with holiday traditions, entertaining, and cooking, and is a great time for gathering with friends, family, and other loved ones. Amid all the hustle and bustle, it’s easy to create an environment that is both beautiful and simple with the right tools on hand—and the best part is, it won’t take too much planning. Make this a true season of gratitude by taking time to enjoy the people who matter the most.
Its fun and festive to decorate your entry with something seasonal. Here we have put together a collection of baskets, lanterns, pumpkins, colorful mums and a chalkboard greeting.
The Right Stuff
It is a great idea to have “go-to” entertaining pieces you can pull out at the drop of a hat. A versatile serving tray, cake pedestal, and other specialty pieces make it fun to create a festive cheese or dessert set up. Don’t be afraid to bring those crystal or vintage glasses out from the vault; it makes your glass of wine or cider seem that much more decadent. If you have a special punch bowl or other holiday pieces, find a way to incorporate those into your décor.

Piece of cake
Cake Vintage offers a great selection of entertaining papers that have a way of making “simple” look well thought out and elegant. Their serving papers and fun straws add a touch of whimsy, and the possibilities for this chalkboard runner are limitless.
