I’ve learned that one thing that makes such a big difference while entertaining is candlelight. It’s such an easy finishing touch, and makes any home seem so much more welcoming and cozy. I love the idea of a setting with all white accents, really letting the candlelight shine while making dramatic shadows. I love pumpkins in all forms, but painting them white makes them a bit more elegant.
This menu is completely inspired by a recent dinner party I was at, so you can rest assured that it’s delicious together! I don’t think there’s any dish more perfect for fall than french onion soup, and even better when served with an arugula, butternut squash, and quinoa salad, and pear crisp for dessert.
