The fall winter months are what we live for in Phoenix.

Once the summer heat finally breaks and we get a hint of that perfect weather in the evenings, Brand and I like to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Taking dinner and drinks to the patio is something we always look forward to.

Since we are finally starting to experience the cooler evenings, enjoying some time on the patio with friends sounded ideal. So this past weekend we invited a couple of friends over to enjoy some Absolut Elyx cocktails and appetizers.

Being October, I wanted our little get together to have a bit of an autumn feel to it. Nothing over the top, just warm, stylish and a bit luxurious. The copper tone that is present throughout the Absolut Elyx brand, not only in the design of the bottle, but also in the production of making the vodka, provided the perfect inspiration.

I loved being able to mix the copper with touches of gold as well as the dark red and yellow hues of the flowers. It created the perfect autumn feel on this October evening.

Drinking this luxury expression of Absolut, which is produced using winter wheat grown on one single estate in Sweden, out of the prettiest copper mule cups only enhanced the style and fun of our night.

If you are planning a fall evening with friends, I thought I would share some of the things I learned while putting this together…

5 Tips For A Casual Fall Get Together:
  1. Keep things simple. Since it’s not a large party, there is no reason to make too big of a fuss. You’ll feel more relaxed and able to enjoy the night.
  2. Stick with the colors of the season. Fall is all about deep, rich colors, so if you stick with that your guests will quickly recognize the feel you were going for. And if you love copper as much as I do, the Elyx Boutique has all the copper pieces you could ever need/want.
  3. Rather than having a full-fledged dinner, just enjoy some appetizers. They’re easier and always appreciated.
  4. Have a signature drink. It’s a fun way to play off a theme and your friends will love the detail.
  5. Have fun! Obviously. Enjoy some cocktails, good food and your favorite people.

I also wanted to note a very important fact about Absolut Elyx…for every bottle purchased in the USA, they will donate a weeks worth of safe drinking water to those in need through their partnership with Water for People. You can purchase Absolut Elyx, the copper mule cups and much more from the Elyx Boutique.

    I love copper too! Such an old world rustic feel. I have lots of copper accents in my kitchen. I have to ask, is that brick wall in your kitchen or dining room? I love it!!!
    these are great tips, Shannon. I agree with you, simple is always the best bet.

    Great tips for entertaining! I’m a big fan of serving a few appetizers and a cheese plate instead of making a full on dinner. Your tablescape is gorgeous as well, I’m loving the copper drinkware.

    This looks like a simple elegant party. I agree, maybe the lesser you prepare the natural the gathering can be. I like how all the colors are well incorporated, you will really get that fall feeling.
