A Fun Fall Entertaining Idea

Entertaining guests in the fall can take on a whole new twist when you infuse your menu with edible s that compliment your decor and ambiance. Edible s bring new and unusual flavors to otherwise typical foods. Delight your guests and your tastebuds while pairing with one of the fantastic fall designs from Al’s Florist.

A beautiful compliment to any formal fall dinner is our Autumn Elegance. When designing your table’s layout and decor, this piece brings autumn colors together with peach alstroemeria, golden mini gerbera daisies, orange spray roses, and leonidas roses gathered in a sophisticated glass bubble bowl. Bring out the flavors of the season and compliment your edible recipes with an autumnal bouquet.

Try adding a garnish of fresh, peppery Nasturtium Pesto to your next elegant meal. Al’s Florist recommends this recipe:


  • 2 cups nasturtium leaves
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced nasturtium stems
  • 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of water to a boil; prepare an ice-water bath and set aside. Add nasturtium leaves to boiling water; cook for 10 seconds. Drain and transfer to ice-water bath until cool. Drain and set aside. Place leaves, pine nuts, garlic, and oil in the jar of a blender; blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl and fold in stems and cheese.
