Halloween is cool, costumes can be cute, but I’m more of a soirée type of girl. My favorite season is Fall. I love admiring the changes that take place in weather, clothing, and overall mood. Most of us prepare our minds and stomachs for family oriented holidays like Thanksgiving, and the coveted super shopping family tradition of many, Black Friday. If you love Fall as well or just need an excuse to spend time with your favorite people, minus the costumes, bring in the Fall season by hosting a fabulous Fall Soiree!
Use warm colors like deep oranges, browns and golds to accent your soiree. Tablescapes featuring familiar autumn touches like branches, leaves and pumpkins will definitely show your appreciation for fall. Don’t forget to have your favorite fall scents, like Pumpkin Spice or Cinnamon Apple Cider permeating throughout your venue.
What’s a soiree without a signature drink or two or three? Once your guests arrive greet them a festive fall beverage. Here are two of my suggestions.
After testing out some of those festive beverages, curb your guests’ appetites with a few of these fall bites.
Caramel Apple Bar
Kale Salad with Roasted Pumpkin, Cranberries and Goat Cheese
No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake
Sprinkle a little Fall cheer with these sparkling pumpkins. At the start of your event, help your guests create personalized pumpkins with glitter, acrylic paint and school glue. Then, place the dried pumpkins in paper bags for easy transport with their owners.
