Fall Entertaining Checklist


As the cold weather approaches do you find yourself hosting more often? I sure do… let’s be serious, I want to be social but I would much rather not leave the house! So what’s on my checklist for Fall entertaining? Make sure you have each of these eight fall entertaining essentials so you are ready to host guests at a moment’s notice.

  1. Fancy champagne flutes {I love my Juliska Amalia Flutes!}
  2. A great cheese tray {I am always asked who makes the Julia Knight tray I feature constantly on my Instagram.}
  3. Cheese knives {I love this Barard one for $20.00 or this Dubost set of 3 currently on sale for $40.00 – hint, hint, also makes for a great Hostess gift!}
  4. Small bowls for nuts and dried fruits on your cheese platters {I use my Michael Aram Molten bowls in square and circular constantly.}
  5. Carafes for serving water {Yes, I said water! I don’t remember the last time I used one for wine! It looks so much more elegant to have your water in a carafe than a bottle or Britta.}
  6. Fall-colored cocktail napkins {My go-to’s are printed paper napkins for $4.95 at Pier1 Imports}
  7. A cake stand {I use mine for desserts and appetizers – see how I used mine for apps at this FH party}
  8. A fun flower vase {I love buying flowers for entertaining, so it’s nice to have an updated way to display them; I love my Jonathan Adler Studded Vase and probably use it a tad too often, woops!}
