Spicy Autumn Themed Dinner Party Ideas

As the days get shorter and the leaves on the trees turn from green to gold, take your inspiration from the season and host a spicy autumn soirée.

Invitations

Inspire your guests with a beautifully handmade or bespoke autumn invitation.  Try making your own stationery by cutting leaf shapes from rust, russet and copper coloured card, using leaf-inspired stationery or pressing autumn leaves onto letterpress invitations.  For something truly whimsical, write the details of your event on a miniature pumpkin – you’ll have to hand deliver your invitations, of course!

Setting the scene

Take your cues from the colours of autumn. Think warm pumpkin, burnt sienna, cool olive and mustard yellows. Mix them, if you dare, with dark berries and chocolate browns.  Add a touch of spice to your room by burning votive candles and fragrant cinnamon sticks.

Decorating and styling

Autumn may not herald Halloween in Australia, but pumpkins offer a beautiful and budget-conscious alternative to blossoms.  Use them as a centrepiece for your table, with votive candles arranged in their hollowed out centres.  Miniature pumpkins make lovely place card holders, and lighter pumpkins can be strung from the ceiling alongside paper ball lanterns.  Miniature pumpkins can be bought from most good green grocers, but you should pre-order to avoid disappointment.

Alternatively, start with a central motif of autumn leaves in all shades of brown, orange, red and green.  These naturally complementary colours look lovely when teamed together as tablecloths, napkins and table runners.  Add maple-leaf place card holders and try placing large pillar candles on nests of autumn leaves as a centrepiece, or use perfect single leaves as quirky adornments on top of crisp white linen napkins at your dining table.

Food and beverages

As autumn is synonymous with a more homely style of cooking - apples, squash, pears and slow cooked meats - it makes sense that your menu takes on a hearty tone.  Serve Swiss brown mushroom cups filled with hazelnut and macadamia pesto, pepper crusted roast beef tenderloin, accompanied by beetroot and sweet potato salad and Apple Cider Martinis.  See more autumn menu inspirations.

Party favours and thank yous

If you are organising a small event, take inspiration from the Halloween jack-o-lantern and carve your own miniature pumpkin treats with filigree designs for your guests.  If a bigger bash is on the agenda, try something charming like a leaf-shaped bookmark. Pink Frosting has a delightful array of autumn themed favor ideas for your guests, ranging from autumn themed glass coasters to maple leaf parasols.
