Autumn is finally here! Who doesn’t love the beauty of the fall foliage, the chilly mornings, the ghoulish decorations, and the smell of pumpkin spice everything lingering in the air? One of the greatest ways to celebrate autumn is by doing some autumn-related activities. This can include visiting the local pumpkin patch and picking out a pumpkin, checking out the pop-up Halloween store for funny costumes, and visiting the local café for a taste of pumpkin pie. You can also throw a party!
Summer is filled with parties, the winter is filled with them thanks to the holiday season, but what about autumn? The fall is a great time to have a party. It’s that right atmosphere where people want to warm and cozy indoors while still having a good time. It’s still at that right temperature where you can even have a fun-filled party outside. Bring out your hospitality skills because here are some fun tips for creating a fun-filled fall festivity at home.
Get out the decorations
You don’t automatically have to decorate your home with Halloween décor, fall décor is more than that. Just like when it comes to a garden party, you don’t have to abide by any certain décor, only what you want. It can include lots of pumpkins, squash, corn, leaves, and mum flowers. You can utilize these for creating a cute and cozy space for your party. Adding some fairy lights is even going to bring up the décor a notch too. But in general, you’ll want to have some plaid designs, some autumn colors like orange, red, brown, and yellow. You also cannot forget about all of the pumpkins and squash!
Bring in some fall flavors for your party. This can include some homemade apple cider, making some loaded baked potatoe soup in a slow cooker, and let’s not forget about the decadent pumpkin pie! If you don’t want to do much cooking, you can shake things up by having a potluck. This allows some stress to be lifted from your shoulders as now you can count on guests bringing some of their food too.
You can get all fun and creative with how you serve the food that you make. This can include carving out a pumpkin and using it as a punch bowl for serving apple cider. Don’t forget to decorate the table a little bit. This can include adding a tablecloth, some small pumpkins or tree branches as a decorative accent, or maybe even a bouquet!
The guest loves having some activities to do during the party. You can set up an old-fashioned cornhole game for the guest to play with. If you doubt that would be anybody’s cup of tea, then carving pumpkins could be a great option. You can either provide pumpkins or tell your guest to bring their pumpkins and then you can provide the carving tools needed. Pumpkin carving kits for making Jacko lanterns are fairly inexpensive and they’re also such a fun way to pass the time at a fall party.
