Pumpkin spice: this isn't a goodbye, this isn't even a see you later, it's a let's give some other fall flavors some love too.
This Fall spread is full of seasonal flavors like cranberries, apples, maple, sweet potato, kettle...and just enough pumpkin spice (oh hey, pumpkin butter dip). Perfect to nibble on while the Thanksgiving turkey cooks.

SETTING THE MOOD
Create a casual, cozy vibe. Decorate the space with assorted guards and mini pumpkins. Large "Fantasy Pumpkins" are also a great touch - they are flatter than standard pumpkins and come in a range of colors like muted greens, cream, and deep oranges. A checkered blanket or tablecloth adds texture for cozy, fall feel. Finally, set the mood with a candle with your favorite fall scent.
