We did a little outdoor entertaining this past weekend. I had shared with you how I had decorated my greenhouse for fall and I decided it was the perfect place to host a little cocktail party. I wanted to keep it really simple with an easy menu.
We do a lot of outdoor entertaining because we live on water and we just gravitate to the outdoors when the weather is nice. We’ve had some beautiful fall evening this year so we continue to enjoy!
My niece got married via Zoom on Saturday in a sweet backyard wedding. I also had a childhood friend of my oldest get married on the same day. I was able to watch a wedding in Grand Rapids, Michigan at 1:30 pm and then my niece’s wedding in Iowa City, IA at 3:45 pm. Both were lovely and cause for celebration.
I needed to have an easy menu to throw together between the weddings and when our guests arrived. We invited our neighbors over to help us celebrate. They are always up for an evening of food and fun!
I made my traditional charcuterie board with cheese, crackers, meats, nuts and some fresh fruits. Our neighbors brought a beautiful plate with Burrata (mozzarella and cream ball) with an olive tapenade and crusty French bread. I was so yummy!
Since we were in wedding mode, I thought a Signature Fall Cocktail was also in order. Again I made it an easy entertaining drink.
We grabbed our plates and cocktails and headed to the outdoor living room to enjoy a toasty fire. Our souls were warmed on the outside by the fire and on the inside by the fun fall cocktail. It was a beautiful night for an easy night of outdoor entertaining.
