Material Girl

The Fall Entertaining Guide
Darcy Jones on www.havetohave.com

T’is the season of supperware! Or so I am declaring… Dinning, decorating and entertaining this fall is undoubtably all about materials. New flavors, ingredients, colors, and textures have made their way to the table, and as the material-girl-of-grub, The Supper Model couldn’t be more thrilled!

From the first bite of a crisp apple to that last slurp of a silky soup, the dishes of fall are designed to brighten our senses. So when it comes to setting the perfect scene for your next autumnal evening, think of texturing up your table

Compliment a homemade pumpkin soup, with warm copper bowls. Slow cooked short-ribs should be showcased on shinny rich-toned placemats, and serve champagne in candy colored glasses. And leave your guests reaching to steel a fresh fruit from your centerpiece…

My Top 5 Fall Entertaining Must-Haves!
1. Candied Glass
The colors of a September sunset or an October sky are somehow captured in this elegant glass set. Whether it’s wine or water, the candy colored carafe will make any cocktail hour a total treat.

3. Mirrors

Stick vintage ornaments or fallen leaves to these CB2 mirror dotted garlands or simply hang them on picture hooks from your window frame to create a fall storm or wintery scene. Or glue wrapped candy to each disk for a holiday party treat. Simple yet stunning, and best of all: stunning affordable.
