Autumn Entertaining

Casual Entertaining TipsWhat better time is there than a brisk October evening to have company over? It’s before the busy Holiday Season, there’s little worry about the condition of the roads, and the weather is still nice enough that you can enjoy a little bonfire as part of the evening. Plus, the colors of the season here in the Midwest make for a great backdrop to inspire your decor!

Here at Alfresco Casual Living, we’ve got some great items to make your autumn dinner parties warm and inviting.

So much to talk about in this picture! We’ve got serving dishes in warm autumn colors and some great wicker plate chargers that can pull duty in just about any season. We’ve always got a selection of seasonal paper napkins, too. Top off your table with these cute decorative ceramic veggies. And prepare a quickie side dish with our delicious Stonewall Kitchen Butternut Squash Risotto Mix. It’s OK…we won’t tell that it’s not from scratch! Of course, while you’ll always find items like these in our store, our stock is always changing, so you might not find these exact items when you visit.

Candles and Comfort Food


Autumn Candles, Recipes and More

Set the scene for autumn get-togethers with scented candles in warm hues and spicy scents. Candles are a great way to extend the colors of the season into the early-to-become-dark evenings.

Looking for ideas of what to serve? It’s the time of year again to serve soothing comfort foods like soups, stews and even macoroni and cheese. We’ve got some great recipes in books like Easy One Pot: Frugal Recipes For Busy Cooks (2009) and Mac’N’Cheese (author Laura Washburn, 2013) from Ryland, Peter & Small.
