Fall Dinner Party

After the mini food dinner party I made a goal to host a little dinner party every month… well that was in April… of 2015… and I actually had my second one last weekend.  I don’t plan on waiting quite so long before my next one.  🙂  I also revised the goal, realizing that every month might have been a bit too often to be realistic.

I chose a fall theme for this one, with mini pumpkins, yellow and orange flowers and goblets and napkins and sort of warm and cozy foods.  We had some feta and caramelized onion pastry appetizer’s and some honey crisp apple cider to drink as everyone arrived.

So do you want to know what we ate? Continue reading
