An Open-Air Soirée to Welcome Fall

Harvest Influence

A picture of an outdoor cocktail party to welcome fall

This buffet of small bites boasts big flavor. End-of-summer sea fare, such as smoky trout dip and a fresh crab and corn salad, mingles with fall fruit concoctions like a nutty apple and Gorgonzola bruschetta and refreshing Ginger Pear Tea Punch. Traditional kabobs get an upgrade with lamb and sweet potato. Start with our Autumn Wine Cocktail, and we can think of no better way to end the alfresco gathering than with a sweet tribute to classic s’mores. Our decadent spin features cookie cups filled with chocolate ganache and marshmallow meringue. Find the recipes on the pages that follow.
