Autumn entertaining is a cinch. Freshly harvested produce, fall events such as cider pressing and football games along with cooler temperatures combine to offer an array of reasons to gather and gab. Here are a few of our favorite get-togethers to inspire your planning.

Vintage-Style fall porch party

Once the busyness of summer is gone and the slow dance of autumn begins, invite your friends and family for a relaxing harvest-theme party outdoors.

Our Brewfest

Give your favorite brew its due by hosting a beer bash focusing on regional craft beers. Make simple beer-tasting projects from shipping pallets and old wood. Then, make the beer tasting an event to remember with flavorful and fun finger foods served up buffet style.
