Summer’s garden parties and beach barbecues have transitioned into cozy dinners indoors. The first signs of Autumn present the perfect opportunity to reassess your home entertaining and fall flowers game-plan before the cooler months ahead.
Here, we share our top three tips for planning a dinner party that perfectly suits the Autumn season.
1. Create a sultry, cozy atmosphere with the right scented candles
While a crackling fire might not be a realistic option in Hong Kong, you can still create the feel of a toasty, cozy atmosphere with a scattering of candles. Even better if those candles are lightly scented with fall-friendly notes that feel warm, woody or spicy. Topping our list? Any fragrances incorporating rum, vanilla, peppercorn, ginger, musk, amber, chai or leather. Check out The Pamper to help you enjoy cozy nights in which includes Tatine's "Love That Burns" candle.
2. Opt for home decor in Fall favored hues
Consider an unexpected ‘wow’ factor with a low hanging garland for your entertaining table. An impressive way to create a dramatic effect with lush greenery and blooms without impeding the cross table view of your guests. Keep it subtly festive by picking autumn blooms – we love celosia and Chinese lantern flowers – in Autumn hues like deep sangria and burnt orange.
3. Create a ‘gram-worthy Autumn-inspired tablescape
A picture-perfect tablescape certainly won’t go amiss. Remember, not all fall table décor needs to feature pumpkins and pinecones, why not try quirky platters inspired by the shapes of harvest-vegetables or glassware and plates in hues of marigold and marmalade. Add one of our Autumn flower arrangements to your table setting and you will have everything you need for a picture perfect Instagram.
