Cooler weather has finally arrived, and with it brings football games and holiday celebrations. Fall is the season of entertaining, and usually means the last hurrah of outdoor parties before the cold weather arrives. Here are a few tips to help make all of your fall celebrations the talk of the block.
With gorgeous, rich colors and center piece options available at every farmer’s market, Autumn creates the perfect setting for entertaining. In more temperate climates, the weather provides an oasis for an outdoor dinner party and gathering around a firepit. If it’s still too cold or hot in your part of the country, bring the outdoors in by using seasonal grown centerpieces. Take miniature pumpkins, squash, fallen leaves and display them along your table with candles to set an inviting mood that encompasses the season. Take the beautiful weather or harvests and incorporate them in all of your entertaining for the next few months no matter the party.

A Halloween Bash
Halloween is the highlight of the fall season and kids aren’t the only ones who love to celebrate this spooky holiday! Adults love a chance to dress up and be someone else for a night, so this Halloween, invite your friends over and tell them to leave the kids at home. This Halloween celebration is for adults only!

For example, a murder mystery or a Hitchcock party theme will make your party sophisticated and entertaining, and you guests know exactly what they should wear.
After you choose your theme it’s time to plan your menu and how you are going to keep your guests entertained throughout the night! Pinterest is the perfect place to find all your recipes and decoration and entertainment ideas. By creating a board for your party, you can keep all ideas organized and in one place with a digital visual.
