Hosting an outdoor fall party with your BFF? No need to worry, we got you covered. There are so many things that we associate with the fall season. Things like pumpkin spice coffee at our favorite coffee shop, leaves turning shades of reds, oranges and golds and the weather getting colder. However, one of the things we rarely associate with fall is outdoor parties. Even though the weather is chillier than summertime temps, there is no reason you can’t host an outdoor party. In fact, it is the perfect time with the beautiful colors of nature and the fresh, crisp air. Here are some tips for an outdoor fall party.

It is important that if you have an outdoor party this fall, you want to provide your guests with comfortable seating. Opt for fall favorites for seating like hammocks and outdoor poufs. You can place a large blanket on the ground with large outdoor pillows for BFF to relax on. The idea is to ensure they are cozy and that they can snuggle up with someone.
Natural foliage decorations
The majority of your outdoor decorations can be made with all that nature has to offer. Take a walk around your backyard or neighborhood, and look for freshly fallen leaves, twigs, branches, acorns, and pinecones. Then, use your creativity to come up with neat ideas to decorate with these items. Some neat ideas are to scatter leaves and pinecones on the tables or place items in a shallow bowl to use as a centerpiece. Other smart ideas would be to use apples and pumpkins to use as table décor.
For foods for your outdoor fall party, open up the grill and get grilling. Head to your local Famer’s Market for all the bounty of fall fruits and vegetables. For meat, chicken, steak tips and pork ribs are all great choices and pair them with grilled fall vegetables like artichokes, squash, mushrooms, potatoes, and spinach. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with caramel apples and pumpkin pie. For drinks, you can go with this delicious apple cider recipe. If it is too cold, you can go with warm drinks such as tea, hot apple cider, and hot chocolate.
