As the warm nights of summer come to an end, and fall officially begins in just over a week, we thought it would be fun to take advantage of the “Indian Summer” and toast a great season with an intimate dinner party with our girl friends. A final fresh meal enjoyed outside with a bohemian feel was just what we needed to get ourselves ready for a busy fall ahead. We naturally went with One Hope Wine because who doesn’t love drinking for a cause!? Half of all their proceeds for each bottle are directly donated to various charities. Delish and doing good all wrapped into one! Read on for a few DIY ideas, styling tips and recipes from Caitlin.
