September is the perfect time to start doing fall things in my opinion. The weather is beautiful (in most areas), and you can still enjoy being outside with having to bundle up! I put together a cute little fall brunch on our deck outside and love how it turned out. Something about those neutral/orange tones :)
We just got in our Natural and Eucalyptus Wicker Set from Raymour and Flanigan. It is a 6 person dining set and is absolutely stunning! The chairs are wicker with cushions and the table is made of concrete which gives it a really clean look. The table also has a whole in the middle if you wanted to use an umbrella. Raymour and Flanigan made it so easy to shop in their store. Their customer service was so helpful!
Here are a few more pictures from brunch and a few ways you can create a simple and intimate gathering.
Create a beautiful atmosphere. I LOVE creating a space that looks and feels pretty. It wasn't hard with this dining set, but adding the fall elements on the table gave the space a little color. I had these crotchet pumpkins from a few years ago and them got some orange mums from my local grocery store to dress the table. Simple, easy, and effective!
2. Have some snacks/picky food on the table ready for your guests. Whether you are serving a full course meal or doing something buffet style, it always looks inviting when you have a few snacks on the table for your guests. Since this was a fall themed brunch, I put out some pumpkins muffins, coffee cake and apples.
3. Have a fun cocktail/mocktail. This is always a crowd winner! I ended up just putting out some apple cider for everyone but you can of course spice it up with some alcohol :)
...and lastly, put on a cute outfit and have a great time! I had so much fun setting up this little escape in our backyard and can't wait to have so many more gatherings here with our dining set. #raymourandflaniganpartner
