Summer BBQ’s have come to an end. Fall is here along with the cooler weather. Don’t let that stop you from throwing a party. Entertaining in the cooler months can be just as fun. Here are some helpful fall party planning tips and ideas.
Throw a Pumpkin Carving Party
Invite friends and family over for a day of carving. Set up a carving table with buckets, spoons, tools and sharpies (for sketching a design). You can also print out some pumpkin carving templates to give your guests some carving ideas.
Also, set up a beverage and snack station with cider (put some cinnamon sticks out too), sangria, cookies, trial mix and apples.
Chili Cook Off Party
Fall means chili and who doesn’t love a good bowl full of chili? Invite your friend over for a chili cook off. Set up a buffet table to put the chili on along with some toppings like sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, diced jalapenos and chopped onions. Assign each chili submission a letter and let your guests vote for the best one!
Invite everyone over to watch the big football game and tailgate like you are going. Welcome your guests with a chalkboard sign and a basket of footballs to pump them up for the big game.
Have plenty of munchies available, root beer and beer on ice. I mean it is a football party. Set a table with your team colors and fall décor and let the guests help themselves!
