7 Ways to Jazz Up Your Event with Fall Colors

Well, it’s officially autumn, and that means it’s time for caterers to stock up on event products and catering supplies for the season! Brush off those pumpkins and refill those cinnamon shakers because we’re bringing a dash of fall flavor to your catering business – Here are a few of our favorite ways to add autumn to your event!

1. Fall Flavor

Apples. Pomegranates. Caramel. Cranberry. There are tons of delicious foods to serve in the fall. Don’t be afraid to take some risks – a flavorful pear champagne (served in our Grandeur Wide Silver Rim Champagne Flute) may add some nuance to a new menu!

2. Gourd Out

Add some mini pumpkins, butternut squashes and maybe even a horned melon(!) to your fall season catering events. They make perfect centerpieces on tables and they also double as a paperweight to weigh down tablecloth in a blustering fall breeze. 


3. Fiery Flowers

You can never have enough red, orange and yellow flowers this catering season. Mimicking the turning of the leaves, autumn hues are famous for brightening up any October day!

4. Plate Presentation

Our modern, porcelain square plates are a perfect canvas for dazzling your guests with fall-colored syrups, dips and sauces. Add some zest to your fall plate presentation with ingredients like orange marmalade and maple syrup.

5. Leave it to the Leaves

We don’t recommend a giant leaf pile or a scare crow at your event (unless the client requests it of course!), but adding a string of leaves can certainly invigorate your catering event’s fall décor. Consider wrapping them around railings or draping them from a loft.

6. Hot Menus

As fall gets underway, all eyes are on the chef to combat the chilly temperatures with smart food choices. Guests will love cozying up to a hot pumpkin or butternut squash soup served in these elegant white bowls. The contrast in colors will be sure to ‘wow’ your guests!

7. Spice It Up

Nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and ginger -- It doesn’t take much to ‘fall-ify’ your menu -- just a dash of cinnamon or a pinch of nutmeg will enhance any dish. Also, if you need to garnish a plate on the fly, sprinkle a little fall spice over the plate to give it a bit of color and pizazz!
