There’s nothing better than a crisp autumn night sipping cocktails outside. I threw together a little at home happy hour with some girlfriends to celebrate the start of fall and to test out some new vegan recipes. I made a vegan pesto that was delicious (and Craig approved). We sat on the patio and snacked on crudite, cheese plates and sipped champagne cocktails. My favorite part, the floral tablescape I created with seeded eucalyptus, dahlias and apples. So simple, so beautiful and so fall.The full spread and the recipes are included in my feature on Camille Styles. The best thing about all of these is you can prepare ahead of time so your time can be spent chatting and relaxing instead of cooking in the kitchen. I linked to all of my cheese platters and wood boards below, honestly they’re the trick to making any happy hour look fancy.
