The summer sun will soon set on the season of rooftop dinners, garden parties, sidewalk dining, and balcony hangs. Before the daylight hours diminish, seize this opportunity to celebrate the transition of the seasons with an autumn equinox dinner party. It’s time to dust off your drapiest, fringiest garments, twirl around your kitchen to our autumn equinox playlist, and bid a final farewell to the warmer months. Set the table with your finest vintage tea cups, because cool, haunted nights are ahead.

Any proper witchy gathering should have tables strewn with freshly plucked herbs, faded lace, crimson candles, and of course, the richest dishes pairing the last of summer’s produce and fall’s favorite root vegetables (all of course, prepared in your trusty cauldron). Feast until you’re as full as the Harvest Moon on flavors like pumpkin gnocchi with rosemary, sage, and brown butter, butternut squash pasta with peppery fennel, and spiced cocktails.

To put you in the spirit (and possibly summon some in the process), we conjured and curated the witchiest playlist to accompany your enchanting gathering. Light the stove, call on your coven, and hit play.
