Autumn is here! That means cooler weather, gorgeous leaves, family gatherings, harvest time, and yummy food. When you host an outdoor event in the fall, you can wow your attendees with sumptuous food that celebrates the season. Today’s blog from The Alleen Company showcases ideal fall foods for outdoor events.
Pumpkin and Chicken Kabobs
Rent a grill to cook for your guests and savor the yummy flavor of pumpkin and chicken kabobs. Cut pumpkin, chicken, and onion into pieces about 1-inch square.
- 6 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
- 1 clove garlic (crushed)
Marinate the cubes in the mixture for at least an hour. Then, slide the cubes onto wooden kabob sticks. Grill for about 15 to 20 minutes at 375 degrees until the pumpkin is fork-tender. Grilling is great for the outdoors, just make sure to cook outside of the tent you rent from The Alleen Company.

Grilled Corn With Herb Butter
Leave the husks on the cobs and grill whole corn alongside the kabobs. The Alleen Company has a wide selection of table linens to keep your tables clean while your guests sink their teeth into fresh corn on the cob.
Mix these ingredients:
- ½ stick of your favorite butter
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons of fresh herbs (like parsley, cilantro, chives, or a mixture of all three)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
Spread this mixture onto eight ears of corn. Roast on the grill for about 12 minutes, or until the corn looks juicy. Turn the corn over every few minutes. If you shuck the corn on the cob, cook for around eight minutes until it’s tender and blackened in spots.
Main course: check. Side dish: check. Now, time for dessert!
Bake your favorite fall-time pies, such as apple, cherry, or pumpkin, to finish your meal with flair. The Alleen Company rents foodservice equipment, so your food stays fresh while your guests eat. Also, don’t forget wines and drinks to pair with your mouthwatering food. Consider a red wine for dinner and a white or fruity wine for dessert.
