By Michiel Perry

The sun is setting early and Fall is approaching. This season means more than stylish boots and apple cider. Fall is just as big as a social season as summer. Get ready for those tailgates, homecoming parties and halloween gatherings with the best entertaining tips this season. Use our tips to make your Southern social a memorable one.

  • Add Some Linen to Spruce up Your Furniture this Season: When people think of linens, they think of Spring, but Fall is also a great time to add a new piece to your collection. Go ahead and show it off at your next gathering.bsb-feb-2016-083


  • Front Porch Entertaining: As much I love sitting on a rocking chair during the summer, I love it even more in the Fall with a great breeze. Set up your your vintage table with your favorite table cover and display those succulent meals in your best cast iron dish. Did we mention leaves are a perfect backdrop for your next Southern soiree?bsb-feb-2016-138-1


  • Outdoor Dinner Parties: Bring the inside out. Now that humidity levels are becoming bearable, you can go back to dressing up and not just living in tank tops. You can spoil your guests with an outdoor dinner party while they put on their bow ties and cocktail dresses. bsb-feb-2016-137-1


  • Style Up Your Bar Cart: A well-styled bar cart goes a long way. Incorporate this icebreaker and your guests will be pleased. The bar cart doesn’t have to be large. Get a cart that’s unique. This will add interest for guests trying out some of your Fall-inspired cocktails.bsb-feb-2016-080
