As fall approaches and the weather starts to cool, it won’t be long before entertaining makes its move indoors. But for one Charlotte family, they cherish the crisp autumn air and hold on to every possible last bit of being outdoors. For them, fall is all about entertaining on a manageable scale with close friends.

    “For me, spring and fall are the best times to entertain in the South,” said Robin Branstrom. “But I’m especially fond of fall entertaining because the weather is so beautiful and it is such a wonderful time to get back together with friends who you have not seen over the summer.”

    And the Branstrom’s know how to throw a party! Robin and her husband, Bill, are part owners of the fabulously successful fine dining group, Harpers Restaurant Group. This includes such dining establishments as Zink, Upstream, Harpers and Mimosa Grill.

    First, a little history about the setting for this wonderful get-together.

    The Normandy Tudor style home was originally built in 1927 and came close to being a local historical landmark. A home that old in one of Charlotte’s original neighborhoods, understandably was in need of some updating.
