An event full of autumn party ideas is a great way to enjoy all of the wonderful things this beautiful season has to offer! To begin, send fall themed invitations to friends and family for your party. Then, start to work out all of the details for your fall celebration.
Here are three fall party ideas to get you started on the right track:
- Apple Picking Party: Invite your friends and family to any local apple orchard for an afternoon of apple picking. It’s a great way to enjoy the crisp fall weather and bond with loved ones. Continue the party into the evening and incorporate your freshly picked apples into dinner, dessert, and drinks. Fresh apple cider, apple pie, or apples dipped in caramel will get your guests in the autumn spirit. As an added bonus, an apple orchard is a great backdrop for some festive family photos!
- Pumpkin Party: Put a new spin on the traditional pumpkin carving party and invite your guests over for a pumpkin decorating party. First, buy small pumpkins or have everyone bring their own. Decorate them with paint, googly eyes, glitter, leaves, etc. Get creative! Pumpkin decorating is a festive way to get everyone excited for fall, it's fun for all ages, and it doesn't create the mess that results from pumpkin carving.
- Fall Cookie Party: Invite you kids’ friends and parents over for a fall cookie decorating extravaganza! This fall party is ideal for families because it’s a way to get the kids involved too. Bake sugar cookies in advance to save yourself some stress. Use seasonal cookie cutters, such as leaves and pumpkins, to make them look festive. For decorations, have a variety of different flavors and colors of icing. You can also dye it yourself using store bought food coloring! On hand, you should also have fall-themed sprinkles and any other cookie decorating supplies you can find. This is a fun way to get together with your kids and you’ll get a yummy treat when you’re done!
