Whether you grew up in Florida or somewhere further north, you know that when Fall comes around, so does sweater weather, pumpkin patches, and apple picking. We’re lucky enough to avoid covering our Halloween costumes with a jacket here in Florida, and although the leaves don’t change the same way that they do up north, the festive fall vibes definitely don’t come short! That being said, your fall party should represent this delightful season with soft, warm colors and plenty of fun props. Any of these party themes are perfect for your autumn gathering!
PUMPKINS, GOURDS AND GARLAND, OH MY!
Visiting a pumpkin patch during the Fall is a necessity in order to get in tune with the Autumn vibes. Pumpkins are more than just a tool for creating a spooky jack-o-lantern, they’re also the number one fall decoration and an all around autumn theme. Being a natural element, they’re also a low-cost decoration that instantly change the whole aesthetic of your event. For an event we did, Audrey's Fall Festival, we stuffed pumpkins with a delicious salad!
SPOOKY & BOO-ZIE
With Halloween right around the corner, craft stores are fully loaded with spooky decor that will spice up your party. Using those props to curate a dark, ghostly theme for your celebration is a great way to invite your guests into your home this autumn. Also, encouraging your guests to dress up in their costume attire is sure to host a fun and lively event. Spook up your party with some Heirloom platters and leave the food arrangements to us!
Your fall get together doesn't have to strictly include traditional fall eats. Instead, switch things up with an Oktoberfest theme! Not only is it unique, but the German hor d'oeuvre and meal options are endless and delicious. Add seasonal beer, savory sausages, soft pretzels and meats & cheeses to your shopping list this fall, and you'll be all set for your Oktoberfest party!
Hang some string lights, get the firewood together, invite your friends over, pass out the blankets and enjoy the scent of fall with a classic bonfire in your backyard! Spice things up with a fun cider tasting, caramel apple station or a DIY pie bar. With the cool weather rolling in, it's the perfect time of year to enjoy warm drinks, delectable food, and good vibes in your very own backyard.
WINE & DINE
Hosting an elegant wine tasting and dinner event is in this fall (and every season), and it is an ideal time to try full-bodied red wines and sweet dessert wines. These opulent flavors pair well with caramel apples, savory cheeses, and tastes of cranberry and pumpkin. Serve up some exquisite hor d'oeuvres with some palatable wine and your guests won't know the difference between your house party and fine dining!
When you're traveling in your car, there's no place better to have a fall potluck than the back of your SUV. You can take the party anywhere - drive out to the beach for a sunset get together, to a park pavilion or a gorgeous fall forest and unpack. Bring along some pumpkin flavored ale and some firewood and your traveling fall festival is sure to be a blast!
