Five for Fall - Inspired Design

The next guest in the Five for Fall Series is the fabulous Debby from INSPIRED DESIGN. 

Hi Everyone it's Debby. I love Kate so am thrilled to be here today sharing my fall must haves!

Autumn is by far my favorite season. The foliage is so beautiful here in New England so it makes a perfect backdrop for entertaining al fresco.

1. Pumpkins are in season and this CENTERPIECE is an inexpensive way to perk up your table.

2. I like to take the stress out of entertaining by ordering a SMOKED TURKEY from Williams Sonoma. The turkey breast serves 8-10 guests and comes already cooked and just needs to be warmed up, it's delicious!

3. ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP is my absolute favorite and this recipe makes a yummy first course.

4. I like to keep a THROW on hand for guests in case the air gets a bit nippy.

5. Last on my list is a cute and comfortable OUTFIT. A splash of color, a cute skirt and voila... no need to worry about unbuttoning jeans after a filling meal!

Thanks for having me Kate!!
