Throw a 'Hello Fall' Party

9.28.2012

Can you believe last Saturday marked the start of fall? Me neither, but I can't think of a better reason to celebrate. Inspired by the idea of a DIY S'mores bar, I've put together a fun fall-inspired fête that you can easily pull together this weekend or next ... or well into November!



The Rule: Bring together all of your favorite seasonal flavors & give your childhood treats a grown-up twist.

The Menu:  Choose things that can be made ahead of time or fun DIY foods. Bonus: Make it potluck style and have friends contribute their favorite fall treats!
+ Spiked Warm Apple Cider
+ DIY S'mores Bar
+ Candy Apples ... or maybe have some fun bobbing for apples
+ Pumpkin Pie
+ Pumpkin Ale (Blue Moon's Harvest Moon is delicious)

The Set Up & Decor:  Since this is a casual party, set up a large table with different stations for guests to help themselves. Decorate with pumpkins or maybe make a fallen leaf garland – keep the decor natural and easy.

+ Marshmallow Roasting Sticks
+ S'mores Maker (city friendly version :)
+ Napkins
+ Paper Plates
+ Beverage Tub
+ Mugs
+ Diecut Leaves (for making drink tags)

Happy hostessing!
