The end of summer marks the beginning of a new season. This fall, keep up the festivities with Wedding and Party Network's top five fall party themes.
Caramel Apple Party
Caramel apples are a popular fall treat that can be made in many ways. Have your guests make these sweet treats with a candy apple buffet. Set up different caramel types to dip and an assortment of candies and nuts to decorate the apples. Add a Halloween tradition and have your guests bob for their apple.
Homemade Pie Party
Like a cookie exchange, have friends bring a small homemade pie and hold a competition for the best tasting pie. Give out a prize to the winner. You can also go a different route and have friends in teams bake a pie together. Have some beginner bakers show their hidden talents.
Smores Bonfire Party
A bonfire is an autumn staple, but shake it up with a smores buffet. Every one knows the three basic ingredients for smores, but try using an assortment of treats to make this smores party unique. Try cookies instead of crackers, peanut butter or white chocolate instead of the normal Hersheys, and a festive Peep instead of a plain marshmallow.
Pumpkin Carving Party
Get the season ready with your own mini pumpkin patch in your backyard. Choose a couple of pumpkins from your local grocery store and get your friends and family to play ring toss to choose their pumpkin. Hold a pumpkin carving or decorating competition and everyone can take their pumpkin home as their party favor.
Day of the Dead Party
Make a party out of this hispanic tradition that celebrates life. Decorate with colorful paper-cutting banners, ma skull head cookies, have a face-painting booth, and tell the story of the Day of the Dead. Make this party in October just in time for the upcoming movie, The Book of Life.
All of these themes can be family-friendly or tweaked for an adult-only affair. Liven up a fall party with anyone of these themes for a fun holiday season. Check back for more Wedding and Party ideas and tips.
