Fall puts you in the mood for everything crisp and cool…the air, the leaves and the APPLES for sure!

School is in session. Work is underway. We are well into our routines. Look to the weekend for a quick escape from it all. You’ll be ready for a #FabulouslySocial fall activity. Red Stamp has *the* recipe for this good time:

First, mix in a few friends and family.

Next, toss in a trip to your favorite apple orchard.

Then, whip up some apple-inspired dishes n drinks.

Finally, serve up and enjoy!

The invite can be clever. Call out day-to-evening details with a nod to nature or customize your card -“Harvesting up a good time”. Awaken their appetites of what’s to come.

The menu doesn’t have to be daunting. You’ll want your prep and your meal to be no fuss, no muss. Do-able and delicious.

Try our tasty line-up to take you right from apple picking to party. {recipes below}. Say, “Cheers” with a marvelous mulled hard apple cider. Move on to apple bites that don’t bite back. Reel ‘em in with a succulent smoked trout with a tangy apple slaw. Satisfy the sweet tooth with a light and decadent apple honey crepe cake.

Host the evening from start to finish allowing your guests to be treated to fab fall fare.

Ask each person to B.Y.O.A. (bring your own apple-inspired dish to share) OR

Assign a specific course allowing your guests to put their apple-twist on a: cocktail, appetizer, side, salad or dessert.

The décor can be casual while still being sophisticated. Personalized pennants grab guests attention at the door “You’re the apple of our eye!” or print out the menu to have on display. Coordinate with colorful custom napkins, “Apple-so-lutely fun!” Bedeck your buffet or dining table and personalize it with table runners-layering your look with phrases and coordinating designs.

The afterglow is the perfect time to surprise your guests with a keepsake photo card: snapshots from the orchard or from the kitchen, better yet, treat them to a tasty token-a recipe card. Ahhh…autumn memories – which everyone will be asking for again next fall!
