Autumn Parties

Autumn. The air is crisper, the leaves are forming a beautiful tapestry underneath our feet and our bellies are beckoning for those warm, delicious flavors of fall. We love infusing touches of the season into our menus by incorporating the best of fall anywhere from the signature drink to dessert and any place in between!

Beginning with your welcome beverage and signature drink; we love this hot apple cider topped with a mini cinnamon cider donut to welcome your guests into what is sure to be the best day ever! Then as your guests enter cocktail hour, why not greet them with a delicious pumpkin spice martini?! That coupled with our butternut squash risotto hors-d’oeuvres makes for the perfect fall pairing!

Moving into the reception you could begin with our harvest duet: pumpkin soup accompanied by gorgonzola stuffed roasted pear wrapped in prosciutto topped with a white balsamic honey reduction over mesclun field greens. Or a farm-fresh golden beet salad topped with goat cheese and walnuts would be just the perfect allusion to fall.

When it comes to the harvest season, dessert always seems to take the cake (pun definitely intended)!   How about adding a sweet and savory pumpkin crème brulee to your strolling desserts or wow your guests with everyone’s favorite fall treat:  a pie station!  Your guests can try tastes of pumpkin, apple and pecan pies topped with creamy vanilla bean ice cream.  And of course, your wedding cake.  Our immensely talented partner, The Bake Works can create for you a mouth-watering pumpkin spice cake with maple cream cheese frosting.  We love this naked cake- not only is it rustically beautiful, but so delicious.

By picking and choosing a few fall inspired dishes to add to your menu you can completely pay homage to this wonderful season and create a harvest wedding your guests will not soon forget!

Remember… Eat, Drink & Be Merri,
