Host a Fall Harvest Party:  What to make, what to drink, and how to put it all together.
Austin’s evenings are finally cooling down, and an outdoor harvest party will perfectly represent the season.  Gather your friends for one last casual dinner before the holidays kick us all into high gear.  Now that you’ll be expecting overnight guests, you’ll need to feed and entertain them. Gottesman Residential has collected our favorite recipes, cocktails and place settings to make this your favorite time of year. 
APPETIZERS
Keep your appetizers limited to seasonal fruits and nuts accompanied by cheeses both creamy and smoky.  A little bacon never hurt a cheese plate.  Remember this Pin from Martha Stewart, The Anatomy of a Cheese Platter: Something old, something new, something goat and something bleu! 
This Fig and Brie Crostini is savory and sweet and so easy to prep
Butternut Squash Soup Sips are easy to pick up from Central Market and pour into tasting glasses.  Garnish with a crusty breadstick. 
MEAL
Pizza with bacon, apple, fennel and rosemary.  Je Mange la Ville has the recipe along with different crust options. 
Pomegranate Salad from Pink Pistachio made up of mixed greens, sliced apples, oranges, pomegranates and candied pecans. 
DESSERT
These killer Pumpkin, Caramel and Toffee Crunch Parfaits by Niki Lowry at the Daily Muse served in mason jars are sure to be a hit and keep your guests warm as the evening gets late.
COCKTAILS
Pomegranate Vanilla Sangria will be refreshing and compliment your appetizers as your guests arrive.  
Finish the night with an Apple Cider Hot Toddy.  The combination of citrus, cinnamon and spice will leave your guests feeling ready for the upcoming holiday season.
DECOR
String up some bistro lights for overhead lighting and use candles in mason jars on the table to protect from any winds
Provide your guests with wool blankets in case of sudden chills
Layer natural elements on the table like pomegranates, pumpkins left over from Halloween and some greenery.  
Use slate and wood serving trays as warmer elements.
Keep your napkins in natural tones, using linen or heavy cotton.

Black and White

Everything goes with black and white checked tile floors. The perfect back drop, adds good “bones” to a room.
