Dinner Party Dreaming

It all started last week when I saw a blog post about this beautiful fall dinner party held at an old farmhouse to end the summer and welcome the beginning of fall! I was swooning over the scenery and food dishes they made. 

I wish I had all the time and money in the world to throw fabulous dinner parties for my friends and I. Since I don't, I'll just daydream about would could be.
If I had a fall dinner party I would...
{I love dining al fresco. Something rustic like a picnic table with twinkle lights strung through the trees!}
{I'd cook some appetizers like this pumpkin bruschetta or pumpkin hummus, then roasted vegetable + smoked gouda baked penne and an autumn cobb salad. I'd finish the meal off with after dinner coffee and a treat such as caramel shortbread or homemade pumpkin bread.}

{Dressing for the occasion is just as important. I'd probably layer cozy knits, a sweater and puffy vest with boyfriend jeans and booties.}

I wish I had the time to make this fall dinner party come true, but in the meantime I'll keep dreaming up ideas.
