Fall into Party Planning
When you see the leaves change from green to shades of yellow, red, and orange, it’s time to celebrate the fall season. Host a fall party to celebrate this beautiful time of year. In order to flawlessly execute any fall party, be sure to plan out all of the details well in advance.
Here are few tips to get your fall party off on the right foot:
Guest list: Before you do anything, be sure to figure out who you want to invite to your party. After all, the best part of any celebration is simply enjoying time spent with friends and family. If you make the guest list first, you’ll be able to plan the other details around this list, such as the size of the venue and amount of food needed. Then, make sure to get the word out with online fall invitations.
Venue: Make sure you decide on a venue ahead of time. If you want to host your fall party at your home, then this part will be easy for you. However, if you want to have the celebration at another venue, then you’ll have to look far in advance to book a venue. If you are having trouble finding the right spot, think to hire an event planner who can help you with details.
Food: Fall is all about the transition into the cold winter nights, so fall party food should be comfort food! For main courses, serve hearty butternut squash soup, warm root vegetables, and roasted meats such as turkey. For dessert, stick to apple pie recipes and oatmeal cookies layered with spices. As for drinks, serve mulled cider! This warm delight made from crisp apples and fragrant spices is the perfect drink for fall.
Decorations and Favors: Purchase tablecloths, plates, and napkins in different shades of yellow, orange, and red. For centerpieces, you can create beautiful displays with apple, gourds, and pumpkins. One creative centerpiece ideas is to carve a small pumpkin and use as a flower vase! For favors, send guests home with cute baskets full of apples, popsicle sticks, chopped nuts, and caramel. Include instructions for how to make their own caramel-dipped apples!
