I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I thought I would share a little Autumn party food vignette I threw together for a little girls night I had at my home. When I think of fall, I think of crisp apples and comfort foods and I wanted to incorporate them into this little vignette.
I made little mini fresh blackberry pies, and oh my goodness were they good! I will share the recipe with you this week. They are so easy to make and are absolutely delicious.
I also used this fun slate cheese board from World Market to serve my different cheeses and crackers that I also found there. I added a couple of local cheeses as well. I love cheese, and it feels like such a special treat to serve a few different kinds that I usually don’t eat very often.
I love the natural stone chalks that came with the slate cheese board. I can see myself using this for other things too. You know me… any excuse to doodle!
I made homemade sparkling cider to drink. It tastes a little bit different… maybe more apple-y… than Martinelli’s, but it is really yummy and full of fall flavor. And I love the way it looks in my dispenser from World Market, with the apple slices in all of its Autumn loveliness.
