Although I dread it getting colder, looking down roads lined with a multitude of vibrant colors makes me appreciate the coziness of fall.

A few friends came over for a casual dinner and games, and given the time of year, I decided to add a few extra fall touches. I love white pumpkins, they are so lovely and bright but still very fall so I opted for a cream and gold tablescape theme filled with a large, beautiful blue and white pumpkin and small white natural and ceramic pumpkins with some added gold touches. The menu was very easy to throw together for a Friday after work with minimal time in the kitchen. Some apple wine and a bourbon pecan tart finished the meal into game time.

After searching I came up with a few things that I thought would really add to the boho Coachella like theme:
