Let’s talk fall tables. Specifically, the kind you entertain from. To put a finer point on it, your dining room table.
Now, while it’s not quite fall yet, we can feel it in the air here at Nanz and Kraft Florists, which is why we’ve already debuted our collection of harvest-hued (and textured!) floral designs. But at this stage in the game, you’ll want to define any entertaining you do with a piece that isn’t super fall heavy. You’re looking for a transitional arrangement that will take you from summer into fall.
Behold our Wild Thing, which looks like a walk through an autumnal forest in a vase. Curly willow, lush purple hydrangea, orchids, thistle, cattails . . . What isn’t visually interesting about this piece? One of the best things you can do for your table in the cooler seasons is to introduce some texture and some richer, deeper color; this achieves both. And yet, it’s also light enough and bright enough to work at the end of summer.
Once you have your centerpiece out of the way (and we think you do!), it’s time to focus on building a menu that signals the harvest, but also pays tribute to end-of-summer fruits. A September party is a wonderful occasion to gather together before the high holidays hit, so make it beautiful.
