pretty parties: outdoor farewell

As I look at the 10-day forecast it has me thinking that this first weekend in November may be the last time to actually take advantage of the great outdoors. That’s not to say that late-fall’s chill will keep us from the occasional yet brisk run, walk or stroll, but the ability to spend time enjoying the delights of outdoor entertainment (even with a roaring fire or toasty heater!) might just be drawing to a close. As such, it seems to be the perfect time to celebrate on the backyard patio with the crunchy falling leaves swirling and mid-day sunshine warming. Dreaming of a lunchtime gathering with treats that feature fall’s delicious bounty: butternut squash soup, autumn apple salad & upside down pear cakes with sweet vanilla honey. Lanterns hold festively-scented candles and apple cider graces the punch bowl. Guests come on foot or bicycle in their cozy and chic fall outerwear. The air, while crisp, awakens everyone’s senses to the beautiful sights and smells of fall..
