Friends, it’s easy to tap into the magic of hosting when you try something new. I promise, this Pumpkin Waffle Board Dinner is so easy to make, and to throw together quickly for company!

Swap out the pumpkin waffles for plain or whatever is in season! You can see all of The Big Board posts and different sizes! Stay tuned for NEW info coming on my own line of boards!

Whether for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner–everyone loves waffles!

Easy entertaining idea

The most important thing when having people into your home is to visit with them. So this is food that anyone can make (just grab the shopping list below) freeing you for undistracted conversation when your guests arrive.

And it’s fun! On a larger scale, you may want to try my Trader Joe’s Epic Pumpkin Pancakes Board!

Pumpkin Waffle Board

Because it’s pumpkin season, I bought most of the food on this tray at Trader Joe’s. And because everyone always asks, the tray is from World Market (but I bought it a couple years ago).

Pumpkin Waffle Board Dinner - set the table

Creating a cozy place to sit and enjoy food is where it’s at! (We’re still enjoying the great outdoors this week, with our weather in Oregon in the 70s!) Pitcher, napkins, and glasses are from Target; white plates are from the Dollar Store.

I love a plan, a ready-to-go attitude that makes hosting fun, and food that’s really good for your people!

Pumpkin Waffle Board Dinner

This time I created a Pumpkin Waffle Board Dinner.

While the waffles are baking in the oven, get the bacon cooking.

Open up a few jars of jellies and pumpkin butter.

Lay out the fruit.

Don’t forget you can make your own Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip (or spread).

Old Dutch 18-inch “Cairo” Gold Etched Tray

Or, grab the tray I used in this post (except in GOLD, because silver is out of stock) >> HERE.

It’s 18 inches in diameter, so a nice size for a luncheon or breakfast tray because it has a slight lip!

Relax and go with the flow!

Relax and go with the flow! Because let’s face it, some of our best celebrations happen to be last-minute. For us, this past week, it was outdoors!

This Pumpkin Waffle Board is also easy for a Sunday morning or Sunday brunch.

Friends, take the time to eat together, to enjoy the days left of our beautiful season, and make something special for your family or friends or neighbors!
