An Autumnal Event

Celebrate the romance of fall with savory food and festive touches

Harvest Hues

The season calls for intense colors, so paint the party with brilliant oranges and reds, golden yellows, soothing creams and toasty browns. Look to crisp foliage, fiery sunsets and those amber waves of grain for more palette inspiration. This bouquet of yellow and white dahlias, bittersweet berries in vibrant orange and rusty red maple leaves is tied with white silk ribbon and jute twine.
