Fall is a gorgeous time of the year, the weather is crisp (well, not yet in Tahoe at least), the leaves are changing, and the food of the season is warm and delicious.  With Autumn right around the corner we thought we would share some of our favorite seasonal wedding details – edible and otherwise!

Accent your place setting with a miniature bouquet of fresh herbs with your guest’s name attached and create a runner (or centerpiece if using a round table) of gourds, pillars of varying heights and wicker woven baskets filled with nuts, berries and pumpkins or more gourds.  Use the colors naturally found in the food and drink you serve your wedding guests to emphasize your autumn color palette…  Some inspiration is below!

Colorful Food

Autumn fruits like pomegranate and apples (rich golds, reds and greens) are at their peak of flavor and perfect for picking!  Savory appetizers such as Onion and Apple Tarts with Goat Cheese or Green Apple & Cheddar Quesadillas are the perfect precursor to any Fall celebration.  Your guests will love a salad entree of Baby Greens with Reduced Orange Vinaigrette, Roasted Beets, Laura Chenel Goat Cheese & Toasted Walnuts.  Serving a spicy pumpkin or squash soup in hollowed out gourds at each place setting, not only look chic and current but they add amazing taste too.  A side dish of cranberry and walnut risotto goes perfectly with hearty fall proteins.  Dishes with beets and other root vegetables are always traditional Fall favorites as well as add color to your plate!

Tempting Desserts

Mini versions of your classic Fall desserts, can add a non-traditional aspect and still be a hit with your guests.  We love these scrumptious mini cherry pies from Bakerella, who wouldn’t want one of these?  Or these cheesecake filled pumpkins cupcakes are a unique fall-inspired flavor that will keep your guests talking.

 Seasonal Favor

A fave Fall wedding favor is the caramel apple.  The options of embellishing this with ribbon, wrap and personalized tags are endless.  Not only will the caramel apples be a sweet touch for your guests, they will also look gorgeous individually at each place setting or in groupings on display.
