- Think rustic elegance: stalks of fall flowers tied to tent poles, glass jugs filled with cider, or dozens of bales of hay for guests to sit on.
- Go all out with rich: chocolate brown burn-out velvet table linens, brown velvet curtains and chair cushions, and brown beaded candleholders for the cocktail tables.

- Incorporate an autumnal icon such as a maple leaf or pinecone.

- Use small pumpkins and butternut squashes as bowls for creamy pumpkin soup.
- Use colorful seasonal produce in interesting ways -- serve a bright red beet puree or a salad of miniature vegetables.
- Give a nod to Halloween by serving chocolate martinis with Hershey's Kisses, or green-apple martinis with apple-flavored Jolly Ranchers.

- Try a basket-weave style wedding cake topped with fresh seasonal berries.
- Dazzle guests with a cupcake tower or tower of donuts.
- Go for drama with a four-tier confection wrapped in dark chocolate fondant and covered in green sugar-paste apples.
- Opt out of a traditional wedding cake and serve slices of apple, cherry, and pumpkin pie instead.
