Ballard Designs has gorgeous outdoor entertaining pieces. You HAVE to walk into their store during this time of year. It will take your breath away!

We went with some beautiful green pieces, like the San Lorenzo Outdoor Pitcher, Tumblers, and the Rosa Melamine Dinnerware, because of all the greenery we have surrounding these spaces in our backyard. It blends perfectly together.

When you plan to have friends and family over for drinks, make sure you have some snacks for them to nibble on too! This is so easy in the Fall because there are so many fun things you can make/serve.

For food we served maple pecan cupcakes and caramel apples- YUM! They were store bought haha I am not a master baker!
