As the air grows chilly, it’s time to switch gears. Brew some apple cider and make a scarecrow because fall is finally here! The autumnal season gives us plenty of reasons to celebrate: colorful leaves, over the knee boots, and of course the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte! Start the season right with these fall party ideas.
Pumpkin Carving Party
Nothing says fall quite like a big, round pumpkin. Gather up a wagon-load of pumpkins, supply carving supplies on a table outside, and let your guests use their imaginations to create their own jack-o-lantern. For the younger set, prepare a table with paints and brushes rather than carving knives. Serve your guests pumpkin snacks and a warm drink. Be sure to showcase the completed pumpkins at the end with glowing candles.
Fall Friends Party
You don’t need a big, fancy get-up to invite all your friends over for seasonal festivities! Simply set up some tables and chairs, possibly a tent, serve up some great fall recipes, and dig into a pile of party games! As a host, you will love the simplicity and your guests will appreciate having a reason to dress up.
When the weather gets cooler, a bowl of chili tastes absolutely divine. Celebrate the season with a chili cook-off. Invite your friends to bring over a pot of their favorite recipe. You provide the dishes and spoons, the burners, and maybe sides of cornbread or chips. Fall is the perfect excuse to enjoy a hot meal with great company!
Call your crew and gather ‘round a backyard firepit for the evening! Tell ghost stories, share laughs, roast hot dogs and make smores now that it’s cooling down outside. Accent your gathering with hay bails for bench seats! String hanging lights across your space for extra ambiance.
