Autumn Treats

October 22, 2009

Autumn weddings are a wonderful for seasonal foods like butternut squash soup, mini pecan pies, pumpkin risotto and pomegranate champagne cocktails.  When the cold weather kicks in guests are ready and excited about these rich flavors. 

Martha Stewart has featured some cute ideas to enhance your autumn theme. 

Serve caramel wafers with hot cups of coffee.  They double as a sweet treat and a coffee warmer when the guest gets up to dance.  The caramel wafer will help to keep the coffee hot and when the guest returns to the table the wafer is warm and gooey!

Instead of having large bowls of assorted nuts on cocktail tables or at the bar, serve individual paper cups of warm nuts as a passed hors d’oeuvres.  Guests will enjoy having the warm nuts on a cold night. 

Candied or caramel apples can be used in a variety of different ways.  Below they are shown as place cards but you can also serve them as party favors at the end of the night for guests to take home.  Another fun idea is to build them into the kid’s table decor.
