5 tips for getting your home ready for fall entertaining

By: Fashionable Hostess

Starting with Halloween I know the marathon of Holiday entertaining all the way through New Years will be underway. Guests or Holidays nearly every weekend. So to get ready for the entertaining season, I threw together some tips for getting your home "Fall Entertaining Ready". And some of these accessories are so fun, your guests will be swooning the whole visit!!

Here are my top 5 easy tips and switches:

1. Swap your usual couch blankets for furry throw blankets {like this one from Royal Scout & Co.} and choose a few festive pillows, like antlers or plaid!

2. Serve seasonal cocktails like champagne spritzers with garnishes of pomegranate seeds {how cute are my new monogrammed glasses, ice bucket, and animal drink stirrers from White Elephant Designs – enter promo code 'FH20' to get 20% off on TheWhiteElephantDesigns.com website today!!}.

3. Bring out the gold accents in preparation of Holiday. I love gold candles {like this limited edition candle from Diptqyue} or gold vases {like these from Rachel George}.
Re-arrange your congregating points to be closer to the fireplace. In this room, I moved my two chairs and a coffee table to mirror the fireplace for a cozy space to sip cocktails {they are usually on the other wall of the room!}.

4. Highlight your fireplace mantel decor. Here I went with an everyday elegant look of staggered crystal decanters, but you could also go with a Fall motif or Halloween motif!

5. Then of course, don't forget a good playlist, a hearty cheese board {this one is from Nambé}, a few white pumpkins, and cute cocktail napkins {like these gold polka dot print ones from Kate Spade}!
